goofy update

For anybody that's new here, I'm currently training for something ridiculous.

In January, I'll be running Goofy's Race and a Half Challenge, part of the Disney World Marathon Weekend.

Goofy participants run the half marathon on Saturday (13.1 miles) and the full marathon on Sunday (26.2 miles). That's a lot of running!

Well, I won't be running the whole time. There's no way I'd attempt to race nearly 40 miles in two days! I will be using the Galloway run/walk method.

The last time I wrote a training update, we had just completed the third week. I suppose I should write these more often; we've now in week nine!

Week 4
Tuesday:  3
Thursday: 3
Sunday: 16.3 (Metric Marathon. We were only supposed to run 13, so we took Saturday off)
Total: 22.3 miles

Week 5
Tuesday: 3.6
Thursday: 2.75 (A short run was OK here, my increase was a little high this week)
Saturday: 5
Sunday: 14
Total:  25.35 miles

Week 6
Tuesday: 0 (Couldn't run!)
Thursday: 3.27
Saturday: 7.51
Sunday: 10
Total: 20.78 miles

Week 7
Tuesday: 0 (Busy again! But needed to cut a day this week, anyway)
Thursday: 3
Saturday: 8
Sunday: 16
Total: 27 miles

Week 8
Tuesday: 1.19 (Testing new shoes on treadmill. Needed to cut mileage here, too.)
Thursday: 3.81
Saturday: 8
Sunday: 17
Total: 30 miles

Even though it's totally something I would do, I did not make the Tuesday and Thursday distances add up to exactly five miles on purpose!

Training is going well, and I'm happy with our progress. I'm actually really enjoying these long runs!

WOW! A marathon is hard enough, but one and a half?! Good luck with your training . . . and I'm sure it'll be a fun one, being Disney and all :)

I really think running 4 days a week is ideal - it's interesting to look at your mileage like this, for something that's a little "Crazy"! :) ha. keep us updated!! how long will your Longest runs be??
