    My suggestion is to ask your doctor to have a foot print done. It is kinda like getting finger printed. It will show how your foot lands when you walk. I had it done and it was pretty eye opening. Also I would recommend going to a running store that records you running on a treadmill to see how your feet land. They should be able to point you in the right direction towards the right shoe and support. These are the things I did and am starting to see and feel the results. Also when I was 20 I did not need anything like this either. Now I am 28 and am starting to feel the effects. Matt hope this helps a little. GO TEAM VOICE! Main street awaits.

    Update time: I have been running 1.1 miles and then walk the same 1.1 miles. I have been able to run a 10min 43sec mile consistantly, but when I walk I go up to an average of 15 min. miles. I was able today to run a small part of my walk and got my average down to 13 min. mile. I am hoping to do this all next week and just keep adding to the times I run during my walk. Besides that I do not feel like I am losing any weight. If anyone has any suggestions on a runners diets I am all ears. Know that I am 5'11" and 240lbs. I'm a short big boy. Thats all for now GO TEAM VOICE!

    I guess I'll update everyone:
    I have done really well as far as ''running" goes. I was able to maintain my 3 mile powerwalking and I was able to increase my jogging to a full mile (I guess walking an average of 13 miles a day at WDW did more than I thought!) However, My diet has gone down the tube. Well, it is Christmas, and I live in the South, and I'm Baptist (We baptist's LOVE to eat, especially southern food at Christmas, lol). So hopefully I won't totally blow it this next week (I will, I said the same thing last week, and the week before)

    I have also been wanting to find out more about runner's diets. Mostly all I can find are "muscle building" diets. That maybe what we need, but I don't know. We need to ask Scopa, since he's on Team Voice.

    Mongello everyone! Update time. I went running today.(duh I know) and I was able to get my first mile down from 10min. 43 sec. to 10min. 10sec! I also was able to run just about 3/4 of the way on my second mile to get an average of 11min miles. Thats down from 13min miles! Hopefully by the end of the week I will be able to run the full 2.2 miles then add on another 1.1 miles.(walking of course) I will not post again till this friday or saturday. I am taking my family down to Disney. I will be flying and my mother and stepfather are driving. Since I want to take my laptop down I will be giving it to my mom so I do not have to bring it on the plane with me. Since I am a DVC member and will be staying at SSR I can use the gym for free. Plus I get internet for free since I am staying on points so I will post how things go when I am there. So have a happy new year everone and Matt have not heard from you. How has the training going. Thats all for now. GO TEAM VOICE. "Many goals One voice"

    I haven't done to well as far as training goes this week. This crazy Mississippi weather (Very hot one day, then cold and rainy the next) has made my sinuses go nuts! So, when it hasn't been raining, I've been sticking to my 3 miles but no jogging. My diet on the other hand has been going pretty well. So far, I have lost 3 lbs.

    Mike- I just sent you a very late Trip Report PM. Also, GREAT JOB on your training. You are definatley doing better than I am. Keep up the good work!

    Hey everyone. And believe me Matt I understand you talking about the weather. Im a neighbor from Arkansas and the weather is the same here. Im no where close to running in the marathon, but I am competing in the 5k Race at AK on Friday Jan 11. Im really looking forward to the race. Im looking to beat my best time of 35:29. I realize thats not fast, but considering I could barely walk a quarter mile last Jan 3rd, im really looking forward to it. Good Luck and see you guys down there.


    I Be loving me some Disney

    I DESPISE the weather here in the South. I'm conviced the Government controls it (based on how screwed up it is) and is getting us back for that whole Civil War thing! Ok, now that I'm off my conspiracy theory tirade, it's update time. I have done very well this week in all areas. I have stuck to my usual 3 mile powerwalk with 1/2 mile jog, but I have added a brisk 1mile walk before i start. I start going to the gym on Monday (along with school...yuck)
    I have also put myself on a training schedule, with my cardio on Monday, Wed, and Friday; and the gym on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday

    Your doing better than I would in your situation. I wouldn't give a "Mouse's" fanny about training while I was at WDW. And forget about food control! That just shows how dedicated you are. How is your trip going so far?

    Today, went fairly well... until a bus load of mean-looking inmates showed up at the park to clean it. So, I sort of cut my cardio session short today, though I did get in a mile of walking and my jogging in. I start the gym tomorrow, though I'm sure it's not like the one at SSE (can you tell I'm jealous?).

    Hi all I am glad to see that everyone is doing great!!! The weather here is hard to train in but when you get use to it you don't notice. I know during the summer the hottest parts of the year I end up in the gym on the dreadmill,even in the early morning hours it's too much. Well i am up to 13 miles in speed walking. Today I add on another 1/2 mile and I will be at 3.5 miles.
