Second - I was checking out www.rundisney.com (where Jeff Galloway is our NEW trainer for Disney Endurance events) and noticed that the "pacing requirements" section for W&D is GONE. Oversight? Or are they acknowledging that they'll be looser? They're even encouraging COSTUMES! I'm still going to give it my full speed - but if they're laxer on the requirement, I feel a LOT better.
Third - diet. We re-read a lot of the South Beach info - and have decided to stick with it - with my doctor's blessing. It's very low glycemic and focuses on good carbs. I'm going to modify it slightly by trying to limit carbs overall as well as limiting calories. When in WDW - I'll simply make the best choices I can - and eat less than I normally would. But until then - 25 days of strictness. We've planned out some ways to help around midday - which was a problem spot.
Lastly - exercise - this is the area that has been the most inconsistent - but I have 25 days of consistency ahead of me. Each day I'll be reporting on what I've done, and how much I'm looking forward to W&D. I can't WAIT to see you all!!!! Later today we're doing a family walk with the stroller - and tomorrow I plan a long solo walk in the AM.
MAIN STREET AWAITS!
