my wife refuses to run with me - apparently my slow jog is too fast and within 5 minutes all i can hear behind me is countless expletives. i'm using her bucket list of things and places to visit to get my marathon list ticked off - got New York next year and Tokyo the year after - she goes shopping etc whilst i go for a run.
doing London in 2017 so starting the build up to that now so may just use the Dopey challenge as part of that. Will be doing all the parks in the buildup to the race weekend so hopefully i will be all photo'd out - especially if the wife an kids have anything to do with it.
Is it really still that humid in Orlando in January at that time in the morning?
8min miles is ambitious i know - have to honest done a few sub 3 marathons before - so it is a little off my normal pace. Absolutely love Disney, even had a Disney themed wedding after getting engaged there so really want to take it all in too.
Training is going to be strange, i think given we are all doing the marathon we can just take the 5k and 10k as a given we will be fine its just how to approach the 1/2 marathon followed by the full on the next day. Normally when i am doing a Long Run (20+ miles) i only do an easy 5 or 6 the day before but i assume now i might need to up these to 8/10 miles easy or 6/7 miles at decent pace just to feel the miles in the legs. I also thinking of making sure my max weekly mileage is in the upper area, near 70-80 miles per week on a more regular basis to get used to the tiredness in the legs.
still, whatever happens its Disney so how can we not enjoy it? Just thinking of all the bling i can add to the collection. Did you get booked with accommodation etc?
