runDisney Shorts: Day 4

May 18, 2016

Its mile 1 for the Red Pants 5k which means only 5 more miles to go until we complete the series! So runners, SEEEEEEETTTTTT GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Still having some knee pain, but so she took an easy day so she only did 0.1 miles which is fine because she still did something and something is better than nothing. She is planning on doing a quarter of a mile tomorrow, leading to a half the next day and hopefully a full mile on Sunday.


Running a mile is getting easier for her, the muscle spasms stopped, she has been using icy hot on her calves and shins and so far the shins splints went away and she hasn’t over heated in any of these runs.


Im still having some back pain, but I’m not to worried about it. Running is easy BUT I’m not liking all the wind that is going on…Ive been using the roller balls to help my back and legs, and i am planning on doing some core and leg workouts to help ease the pain in my back.


For the Red Pants 5k my mom and i are really focusing on time and form. We have dropped a minute and a few seconds off of our mile and we are making sure that we are running properly so we dont hurt anything.


runDisney Shorts Series: Day 1

May 15, 2016


runDisney shorts have OFFICIALLY started! Let me tell you this is the most exciting runDisney event ever!!


Incase you missed my last blog where i wrote about what runDisney Shorts is be sure to check it out. Now in that blog i mentioned running with my mom, BUT we have a new recruit…My nana. Which changes how i was going to updates. SO RUNNERS SET GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



My nana is 77 years old and she is a home body she is in perfect shape BUT because she doesn’t walk a lot her legs are weak so she walks with a walker. Today she ran for the first time in forever. She walks a half a mile and her goal is to get off her walker and to a cain than by herself. Nana will be completing the one 5k for a total of 3.1 miles



My mom is training for the Disneyland Paris Half Marathon, her goal is to run it in 2 hours and not almost faint at the end of the run due to low sugar. She will be doing the whole series so a totally of 9 miles.


My goal is to set a PR and actually train for a run, instead of winging it. I also would like to eat healthier and shed a couple of pounds to make it easier on my knees and back. I also took the challenge of completing 9 miles.


This is only day 1 of a new change. My mom and i will be running a mile everyday for 9 days to complete the series. while my nana will be waking a half a mile 2x a day with some short runs during the walk.
