Hi all! Today I did 6.5 miles combined jogging and walking and I feel pooped. This is the farthest I have ever gone. Thing is, I am so disappointed when it comes to my friends. The don't share my love of Disney and they could care less. I guess they just don't understand. Most folks are off tomorrow due to MLK day, myself included. I asked them if they want to hang out, and they all had excuses. Seems that we all have gone our separate ways when it comes to getting healthy and running. I don't have kids, most of them do, and they look at time like I have 3 heads. I feel I get more support from the kind folks on the DIS. Sorry for the rant, but it really got me depressed.

Cindy

This newbie appreciates any good vibes and words of encouragement. I see light at the end of the tunnel
Thank you! Yes, I hope this weather holds, it was wonderful this morning. I'll be volunteering at Hero-a-Thon next week and I am going to try to get out and cheer for everyone.

And thank you. This was just the encouragement I was fishing for, LOL. But seriously, you made me feel a lot better.
Thank you! I know you will do great.

Just did Tink today. Next stop is Princess for Coast to Coast. Curious question for someone who may know how long does it take to get a custom orthopedic insert for your shoes (if you are getting a mold)?

Way to go on the 6.5 !

Sorry about your friends...most of my friends have been super supportive but like yours have no intention to try something new/ check it off the bucket list. Is there a running club in your area that you could meet with for training & support. Bet being in FL there HAS to be Disney fanatics who run!

Thanks for the kind words. All of the running clubs are nowhere near me, but I plod on. It's funny, back in 2007, when I ran more often, everybody wanted to be associated with me. Different story now. Lives change and so do people.

Congrats on the finish! Sorry you aren't feeling 100%, but you pushed through and did it. 5 weeks seems plenty of time to rest and work back up for the princess. Enjoy the rest of the night/trip!

Cindy,
I totally understand. My kids are grown and out of the house. I love Disney and am so excited about this race...I am walking it. I understand going it alone. The message board and the FB page are my motivation and I love reading them. Keeps me going...

I walked 7.27 miles yesterday in 1:46:31, average 14:40. Felt good. I was so excited. I had some pretty fast miles in there so I think I might get to get a picture and go to the bathroom. I even feel good today. Cannot wait.

Way to go! Don't worry about your friends, you have the people on DIS.....just keep doing your best and follow your plan. I got married later in life and sadly things do change when you are single with no kids and your friends are married...... hang in there!

Thank you sooo much. It has been vet difficult for me these past weeks. I got dumped by my SO, but I just keep plodding along. I will not give up with the help of my fellow Dissers.

I was on an awesome track -- had been getting in some seriously long runs for the first time ever (I ran 10 miles! And then 10.5 miles! Crazy!) But then these past two weeks have been blah in terms of training.

First, it was the first week back to school (I'm a teacher) and I was drained and exhausted and only got in one tiny run and then a pretty nice 5 miler (ran at my goal pace of 12.5 min/mile, so I felt good about that -- even though I know I can't keep up that pace for much more than 5 miles). But then this week I got a terrible cold with a chest cough and so didn't run at all -- I was on track to run 12.5 this weekend, but obviously that didn't happen. I'm going to get out there today and do something easy.

I'm supposed to run a 10K next Saturday, hoping to get a time I can submit at the Expo, but that means I'll only really be able to get 2 more long runs in before the big day!

I'm scared!

I keep worrying I won't have trained enough or that I'll injure myself. Looking at it all typed out seems kind of crazy -- I know *logically* that I haven't wasted all my training just by having a couple of bad weeks, but it's so hard to *feel* that, you know what I mean?

And should I try to do a long run this week? Even though I have to race on Saturday?

I am trying to think of the castle and to trust my training, but I'm feeling really nervous...
BREATHE.....you are good....may programs only have you going up to 10 miles. Do your 10k , you will be fine!
