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!
Sunday: 16.3 (Metric Marathon. We were only supposed to run 13, so we took Saturday off)
Total: 22.3 miles
Thursday: 2.75 (A short run was OK here, my increase was a little high this week)
Total: 25.35 miles
Tuesday: 0 (Couldn't run!)
Total: 20.78 miles
Tuesday: 0 (Busy again! But needed to cut a day this week, anyway)
Total: 27 miles
Tuesday: 1.19 (Testing new shoes on treadmill. Needed to cut mileage here, too.)
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!
