I live in Seattle & took my first trip to Dineyland as a baby. I finally made it to WDW for the first time in 1998 & Disneyland Paris in 2007. Finally, in 2012 I became a proud Disney Vacation Club member!

Good morning everyone! Just two weeks to go until Disneyland's Diamond Celebration. No details have been announced yet for the day's special events. But, Disney has asked Guests to show their 1955 Disney side! "Get your best duds ready and come dressed in your finest suits and circle skirts . . . " This is going to be fun to see!
Not going to happen, I don't own dapper shorts! Maybe I'll have to buy a tuxedo t-shirt! People are going to melt if they dress to the 9s. The irony to me is that on July 17, 1955 the weather was so hot the new asphalt was melting. - jacdanfan  8956.5 #5 6:00AM
I know! When I read this, I thought about all those poor people melting in the heat while the women's high heels sank into the asphalt! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1067.1 #3 6:35AM

Galloway Method runners, have you heard the news? After over 40 years, Jeff Galloway has done away with the 1 min walk break and replaced it with a 30 sec walk break. Apparently the benefits of the walk break take place during the first 30 sec. After that, it just tends to slow you down. To find your new run:walk ratio, just cut your current ratio in half. For example, 2:1 (min) is now 60:30 (sec)  More...
Hmmm...not sure how I feel about this. We heard him speak at Tinkerbell and that would explain why the numbers he was quoting were all mixed up. He probably had this in the works and the old method mixing in his head.  - mzdisnee  504.3 #15 6:09AM
My mind was blown when I heard about it. But, it makes sense so I'm going to give it a try! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1067.1 #3 6:31AM
crazy.  I am just all confused by him.  Guess you have to find your own thing.  - 5disneylovers  985.6 #5 6:25AM
Try 30:30 (sec) and see how that works for you. Have been released to start running again? - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1067.1 #3 6:54AM
no I have not.   - 5disneylovers  985.6 #5 3:46PM
Oh wow! Thanks for the info! I'm trying really hard to get back to running after my blood clots in my lungs...it's amazing how deconditioned I got!  Mostly just walking but adding in some running too! - brittandkell  446.5 #455 6:34PM
That's great! Just a little bit at a time and you can slowly build up from there. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1067.1 #3 7:05PM
Hmmm... I guess I could try this but I don't know. I had at one time done something like this and it was to taxing.  But I can try again. - PrincessAuroraMomma  551.9 #344 8:26PM

Is that the kines tape on your knee? How do you feel that works for you? I remember when I first saw it at the summer olympics and there was this article about it afterwards. - Lelundrial  569.4 #335 8:25AM
Yes, KT Tape. It's no miracle worker, but it seems to help. I've also found a lot of relief (although I can't explain it) from wearing copper sleeves. My knee hasn't been a problem since Star Wars. During Tinker Bell it was my feet that were killing me (I'm blaming that on too much standing and walking.) - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1067.1 #3 8:32AM
I have heard that about copper. The foot I had surgery on is always an unknown factor. Some days it is ok, and then some days my foot and heel hurt. - Lelundrial  569.4 #335 10:19AM
I've been having heal pain in one foot off and on too. I think it's related to tight calf muscles, so I have been working on that. It seems to be helping. It's always something! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1067.1 #3 10:28AM
