NEXT WEEK (12/31-1/6)
Goofy prep time! Yoga, foam rolling, HYDRATION and getting started packing!
Congrats on 700 miles…..I did not have a mileage goal for the year, but just added mine up earlier today and it was 690. I am happy with that since the first half of the year was just 300 with not many races and July to Dec. Goofy training was 490. Safe travels to WDW!
My mileage was actually very similar for the year…through July I was only at 250 miles since I really slowed down after the WDW Marathon last year, but August to now I was at about 450 miles for W&D and Goofy training!
Safe travels to you too, maybe we’ll cross paths! What corral are you in??
I am in Corral B for Goofy…not sure how I got that since it is my first marathon, but my best half is 2:03 (from Chip and Dale relay last year). I will be dressed as Minnie for half and Mickey for full, despite being an old lady runner!
I’m in corral B too! It’s the right corral as far as my half marathon PR time, but no way I’m finishing the full in under 4:15! I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for you!
Congrats on getting your miles accomplished! And I can’t believe your Goofy is in a week. I can’t wait to hear about it – you’ll do great!
I know, I can’t believe it’s so soon, I can’t wait! I’ll be sure to post lots of photos for you!
Do you get 2 or 3 medals when you do the Goofy challenge?
Three! One for completing the half, one for the full and then a special “Goofy” medal for having completed both races!
OMG, BLING heaven!!
Wow!! Congrats on 700+ miles!! I can’t believe how fast Goofy is coming up. Out of curiosity, what is restorative yoga? Is it like yin?
Well in both Yin and Restorative you hold the poses for a long time, the difference is that restorative is a very relaxing practice that’s meant to restore your body, you use a lot of props (bolsters, blankets, blocks, etc.) to support your body and just relax…it’s actually very medatative. Yin is really a slow deep practice that uses gravity to deepen in to the stretch. Does that sort of make sense??
Totally! Thanks! Hm, I might need to look around for restorative yoga classes.
