depends on how much you are use to running and how much the pain is
Well, I'm not a good one to ask, lol, since I am planning to power walk the whole thing.  But, yeah I would say don't run anymore until then, or maybe just walk to get some distance under your belt between now and then.  You certainly don't want to hurt yourself right before and not be able to participate in the race, especially after all your hard work and dedication during training! - mrsincredible  872.8 #5 6:40AM
Yes that's what I'm thinking - 5disneylovers  878.2 #4 8:38AM
Are your knees sore? Or, is there pain? I don't worry too much if my knees are sore, I just give them an extra day or two. But, if there's pain (sharp pain), then you really need to take action. RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) and anti-inflammatories (Aleve) help. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 10:11AM

sounds good to me.. I will be there....let me know if you all decide to meetup after the race in Epcot
The 9th would be good for us. We have dinner at Tony's at 6:00 but after would be great. The 10th we can't because we're doing the christmas party. 😃 - Schramke  418.0 #17 1:11PM

good job!! Thats your final long run? Why? I would do one Sunday if I were you but thats just me
You and I need to have a serious talk on the 6th. This is getting out of hand. And I'm genuinely worried that you still run and think it's fun.....er. I mean. Good job. Yay. - IndyandMarion  1242.5 #1 10:38PM

That's it for long runs... Just 3-4 mile runs from here on out. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 4:37PM
Having only a week between long runs is recommended? - mrsincredible  872.8 #5 4:53PM
@Mrs I There are several different schools of thought... @Dave Do you follow a specific training plan? - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 5:41PM
Yeah, it's kinda an individual thing. I do one a week also when I'm training. I loosely follow Hal Higdon's plans, and that's what he recommends. They are generally 12 week cycles, with one long run on most weeks, sometimes subbing a 5K or 10k race. Disney's/Galloway's are, what, 16 week cycles or so, with a long run every 14 days-ish? I tried that originally and it just didn't feel quite right for me, so I switched it up--I'm pretty happy with the one per week method. But again, it's a very individual thing and you have to listen to your body. If you need a bit more time between long runs, then it's really important to give yourself that--you'll be better off in the "long run" (pun intended, lol)! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  536.5 #326 10:03AM
I have just always felt that I like to do one test run a week before and then do 3 miles lets say maybe on Tuesday or Wed. this week i did 3 last night, then I will do 7 tonight 6 Friday and probably 12 on Sunday. I'm not sure if I will get another run in before my trip though since I leave Wed morning and also I am running the avengers the week after so I want to take it a little easier than normal - Dave   11412.7 #2 2:22PM
How do you work running that many miles during the week? I usually run 3 miles on Tues and Thurs... But, I really dread it after working all day! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 2:57PM
I do about 20-35 miles a week. I usually do it after work and then in the mornings on the weekends...it does take out a ton of my personal life during the week but I have some goals I want to reach so I need to stick with it - Dave   11412.7 #2 3:23PM

Yes, that's us last year! I will happily be without the belt (shorts w/pockets) this year. I also plan on wearing a cooling scarf so the humidity doesn't hit me so hard. I want to make it to that after party! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 7:21PM

Did you get into corral A? - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 6:11PM
NO!!!!! I am annoyed. A is too much for me but I should be in B or C. I got C for Avengers the week after so I dont understand the logic since I should be done under 2hrs - Dave   11412.7 #2 3:25PM
I was hoping for corral F (I qualified by 2013 standards) but, I'm in G. I'm guessing that the 5 year anniversary brought more experienced runners than last year. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  886.9 #3 4:36PM
Heck the opposite happened to me... I'm brand new to this, no prior race experience whatsoever and they put me in J and I should be in the last corral. That's 3 up from the back! How that happened I will never know, but I'll take it. - mrsincredible  872.8 #5 4:49PM

I thought the WDW version was going to be a bit different then DL's before we went on it. Then we see it and it is the exact same ride, except for the queue and if I remember correctly the boarding. The recent additions to DL just changed it a bit, nothing that makes it wholly different. - Lelundrial  468.9 #392 8:58AM

the drops at DCA are stronger than WDW you will be fine
I've only done the one in CA a couple times and they seem pretty much the same drop wise, I didn't feel much different , I get really motion sick but I'm fine TOT - tracsant  959.6 #2 1:52PM
The WDW got a better Drop! It is likely a surprise one! Also u are most likely "Float" on your seat when you drop! - otilegna  1792.6 #70 1:52PM
But then they say the drop sequence is random (which i totally agree with it). - otilegna  1792.6 #70 1:53PM
Yes WDW sequence is different each time where DCA is the same. So it's the same dropping, just depends on how many and how far I think. It's all different - brodysmommy  337.7 #624 8:51AM
You'll love WDW but don't find out too much about beforehand so you can experience it. - goofygal  6976.0 #7 5:45AM

yesterday i had the worst experince I have ever had with the WDW telephone reservations. First I put in all my info on the automated system and then waited 1:45min to get an agent. Once I did she was the worst I have ever had and I have had nicer experinces with the DMV or the IRS on the phone. She was misreblle and could not careless that I waited and then tried to make things more difficult for   More...
I'm so sorry to hear that. The last time we had booked before free dining was released, we had booked Art of Animation (which is never part of the free dining), and they were able to upgrade us to POR with free dining, and it was only like $30 difference. I'm sorry they told you that resort was not on the list. - mrsincredible  872.8 #5 10:12AM
Call again and talk to someone else! Maybe that person can work their magic and help. I've learnt that different people can do different things. Worth a try! - disneyworldsbiggestfan  57.2 #88 10:35AM
I had them transfer me to someone else..they said they couldn't help...I emailed them this morning...I'm hoping someone can help...if not I'm going to call again...and again...till maybe something comes open atleast for a moderate resort - jamiesli  17.0 #167 10:55AM
