Running outside is definitely different than on a treadmill. It's harder if you are not used to it for sure. I would start doing your longer runs outside to get used to it. If it's too hot, go in the early morning. I'm in socal and have barely been able to get through short runs in the midday heat...bleh.

I am!!! Home long enough before Tink just to do laundry then pack and hop on down to DL! I'm in CA so WDW is a big trip vs. going down to DL so I'm there from Fri-Wed and then DL from Fri-last flight out Sun night. Definitely don't want to drive down after Goofy and risk legs cramping up.

I'm used to running outside and using the treadmill is really new to me. I still like to have my longer runs around the track. I've been using our treadmill for shorter runs and working on speed since the treadmill makes you go faster. (If that makes any sense ) I also think I would go crazy just looking out the window for 90 mins or so on the TM.

I can't believe it's getting close to the end of Sept. You know Jan. will be here before you know it.

A tip I learned to help is to run on your treadmill at a 1% incline. It's supposed to help translate to outside running better.

I've been running at a 3 to 4 incline on the treadmill, since I don't want "running outside" to be hard for me to do. Maybe I'm over doing the incline ??

That would work like resistance training a bit. So, sort of strengthening. It will probably help build your performance speed some. If it's tough or you're getting discouraged then I'd bump it down to 2%.

Thanks for the tips! I'll add the incline on the treadmill and work on getting outside for the long runs. Admittedly the tv in front of the treadmill helps keep me going as it forces my eyes off of the control panel and desperately staring at the elapsing seconds.

Meeee toooo! I'm trying to figure out how/what I want to do that week. I know ice bath after both races in WDW, and I'm bringing a foam roller w/ me for stretching... I just don't know if I want to schedule a massage Thursday or maybe Tuesday over at the GF. But no expectations for Tink at all. As long as I cross the finish line to keep legacy, I'm good.

Brightroom Discount

I'm gonna post this on a couple of threads, so sorry if you read it twice, but just wanted to share that I got an email from Brightroom for their end of summer sale...50% off!!!! That's the best discount I've ever seen them offer. It's only good through 10/5 I think...the code is ENDOFSUMMER50. So, if you have any race pics out there you want to order, now's a good time. I used it to finally order the Tinker Bell half gallery download. It's a great deal!

15 weeks! I put up my training schedule at my desk at work today, which means it's "go" time! It's a 16 week plan, but i'm starting on week 2...was in WDW last week for the ToT 10-miler and a little vacay, so I gave myself a little break...but I'm back on the wagon starting today. Here we go again!

Now, what to wear on race day? Decisions, decisions
