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?
