20th Anniversary Walt Disney World Marathon Training Week 14: Why I post my schedule?

Goofy2011 028I was asked the other day why I post my running schedule to my blog and who do I post for.  I post the schedule for one simple reason, accountability.  I find posting my schedule really helps to keep me accountable to my running plan and allows me to focus on the plan for the week.  This is the initial reason I started posting these schedules.  What I have found is that these posts have been connecting me with a number of the other runners in Disney.  I was reminded of this on Tuesday this week.  I was delivering one of my technical sessions and as is the case in all my sessions I show my blog.  Sure enough as I scrolled through the blog I showed one of weekly training posts, like the one your reading now, just normal chit chat for me.  Well during break a gentleman approached and mentioned he was running Disney this year as well.  In fact he was running Goofy and this was his first time he was running Disney.  I was able to help him understand the run and we talked about nutrition, running and footwear.  Do not worry Jimmy I got you covered.

I then realized that these posts are not just for me, but for you too.  If you happen to be running Disney, I would love to hear from you and more importantly would love to meet you.  Just like I met Pearl two years ago, gonna miss you this year. 

This is the week of training (novice2):
