training for the Disney 1/2

8:15 PM Posted by Roo

I was working on a training plan to run/walk the Disney Half Marathon in January. I've gone out several times to run/walk and my body just isn't cooperating. Something funky is going on with my hip and running is aggravating it (this is on the opposite side of my last injury...go figure). However, walking I can do. And unless something magically changes and my hip problems disappear, I will be walking the half.

For some crazy reason I feel like a failure admitting I won't be running it. But I shouldn't feel like that. I know this. So why do I? I'm going to train, give it my best and walk my booty off to make that 13.1 and cross the finish line. Who says I have to run it to finish? Just my inner mean girl. Excuse me while I go kick her butt. With the side of my body that's hyped up on steroids and feels no pain.

    Kick her to the curb because walking a half marathon is a HUGE accomplishment.

    Running seems to be gaining back in popularity again, but in many people it actually triggers hip and knee problems. Don't feel bad if you are walking it, it's a much healthier way to go ;-)
