I'm so sorry to hear that! Get well soon!!!

I was supposed to do 9 tonight and ended up doing 6... *insert feelings of loathing and self-hatred here* Those long mid week runs on the Higdon plan are just killing me, and there's no way I can possibly get through 10 miles on a weeknight and get home before 9pm.
Has anyone ever cut those midweek runs a little short?

Today, for the first time in training, I cut the midweek long-ish run short. I was supposed to do 8 and only did 6. I am also loathing myself. We can have a pity party together!

We must be on the same plan--I was supposed to do 9 tonight but ended up only doing 5 (insert self loathing here) because it's cold and rainy and I just didn't have it in me.

I think one of the things I'm looking forward to about post-marathon training life is eating dinner before 8:30!

Don't worry, guys. It's very rare to follow a training plan 100% perfectly. The long runs are what's most important.



So no waivers yet...I really thought today would be the day :

I never in a million thought I would be saying, "I cut the run back to just 6 miles" and finding fault in this. Never.

Oh how nice... Dinner at a reasonable hour... I don't know, maybe it would better if I wasn't so slow and it didn't take me as long to get through the miles but I can't wait to go back to running 3-5 as my weeknight runs: life after the marathon!

On the mapmyrun map that Coach Charles put up a while back, I only see one food spot. I thought that there was more than one food spot. Can anyone help me out on where and what food will be offered? TIA
I like that map he put up.

If you look at the map on the runDisney web site, you can see that it shows food stops at mile 12 just before AK, near mile 15 just past McDonald's (I'll be skipping the Disney food for a McFlurry), between miles 19 and 20 in WWoS, and just past mile 22 in DHS. I'd assume the food will be the same as in past years - bananas and Clif Shots. I wouldn't count on your favorite flavor of Clif Shots being available, so it's probably a good idea to bring your own with you. Otherwise, you could end up like me at my very first race several years ago. The Clif table at RnRVAB only had something with caffeine in it by the time I got there, so I ended up with the shakes the rest of the race since I don't normally have any.

thanks John :-)

I do like all the detail on Coach's map, but the rundisney map does show the food. Hope your Mcflurry is great!

What!...I love mapmyrun but its editing features really stink. The the missing food stops are back.

Expect bananas at the first stop coming into AK near mile 14. Clif shots and blocks near mile 15. Banana and Cliff products near mile 20 and Candy near mile 23 (DHS).

While not on the map in in any literature to date, there should be a cold sponge handup around mile 17 where we turn to enter WWoS. I base the point on the historic point in the race. However, the Mouse would probably not put a heavy litter handup just before WWoS, so I wonder if it will move around to the point where we leave WWoS.

The food info will help my son...he will carry nothing...makes me crazy, but it's his run, not mine.

I am stalking my home email from work. Does runDisney usually do the batch emails overnight?

It's generally through the day, from what I have seen in the past.

well I caught the the cold that has been going around where I work for 2 months now. I really thought I would be able to survive and not get it.

I was going to go for a 15 mile run today but that won't be happening. I can't breath through my nose of mouth so running/ even walking would be hard. These training road blocks are really starting to bother me.
