We leave for Disney on Saturday morning, about 2:00am. Yes, many think we are nuts, but it works for us. We would rather drive some where the kids are sleeping then deal with them for 10 hours in the van with them awake. Ray will drive the first shift while I sleep, and then we will switch. It worked out well last time, so hopefully it will this time too.
I have had a few ask me if I am going to run while in Disney. Um, per doctor's orders no. Yes, I went to a sports medicine doctor on Monday for my constant knee pain. Despite the fast Turkey Trot I ran, I had knee pain the entire time, and then pretty significant pain after the race.
After some examination and x-rays, my meniscus in my left knee is significantly more worn down then the one in my right. I saw a physical therapist, and she gave me strength training exercises to do. I am under orders to not run for 2 weeks, and then ease it back in. Which is just in time to start training for the Myrtle Beach Half marathon on February 13th. I will definitely start doing more strength training for my obviously wussy legs. So no running in Disney, which is fine because I think the walking we will be doing will be plenty!
