I love those ears!! Did you make them?
Can you hold back in a race scenario or are you going to want to "race" the long run?My way of thinking is that I'll be running 17-18km's by then as part of my Wine & Dine training anyways, so why not enter the race, see the big landmarks around Melbourne and earn a medal?? BUT I'm worried that I could be tempting fate and inviting an injury. What do you all think?? What's your advice?? Run the Melbourne Half because I'm going to run almost that distance anyway or save myself for the Wine & Dine Half on 3 Nov and limit any chance of injury??

Thanks guys & gals. I think we're all looking at the Melbourne Half Marathon race in the same light. Participate, use it as my long training run BUT DON'T RACE!! If I can cross the line in 2:45 or slightly better it'll be a great long training run achieving about an 8min km, which is about a minute slower than my current long run pace. It'll be great to show you all those great Melbourne landmarks after the raceI say go ahead Melbourne too, but take it very easy.
Because it's boring and tedious. If you're disinterested in doing a run or have little to no distractions it makes time seem like it takes so much longer. And that change in attitude influences your perception of effort.Can someone explain to me why 10km's on the treadmill feels like 15km's on the road??? It's so boring and tedious and feels so much harder than being out on the road. next Saturday I'm going to try for 12km's so I'm hoping and praying for good weather!
I'd take an uber/Minnie van if your time is important to you. Otherwise, walk over to Swan/Dolphin/Boardwalk and take the expo bus from there. Last option would be to take the new Skyway to one of the resorts on the line and taking the expo bus from that hotel.We're spending the morning in Hollywood Studios and are going to take advantage of the Extra Extra Morning Magic Hours at HS's that day and will be exploring SWGE before having lunch at 50's Prime Time and then heading to the expo but what's the best way to get there from HS??
Friday is the second day of the expo, so 3-4 hours is plenty of time since the lines shouldn't be crazy long.I've done a lot of reading and have seen a lot of people talk about the free events at the expo as well as all the product stalls you can browse. I've allowed 3-4 hours but is that too much time?? I figured we'd spend a good amount of time enjoying the expo, picking up our race packs and then browning the booths before heading to Disney Springs for a Polite Pig dinner. Have I planned it out well? Or have I allowed to much time?
No worries. Since you're not heading to the expo right when it opens the lines should still be shorter. Maybe not short, but shorter. So 3-4 hours seems completely reasonable with some buffer time. Sometimes it takes a good bit of time just to get to the expo from a different destination because of traffic. So if it were me and time was precious, I'd probably spring for the uber/Minnie Van from DHS.Oops you're right! Silly mistake on my part. I actually meant that I've scheduled Thursday afternoon to be at the expo
