WORKING OUT FOR DISNEY

Howdy Folks,
I may have missed a similar thread somewhere on these fine boards but not having seen one i thought i would start one.
This is a Thread for helping keep people motivated for weight loss and generally keeping fit.
So have a good day and to Quote a good friend of mine ... "Keep Moving"

A good bit of us don't take the running part seriously, I for one just go for the fast walk myself.

Me too. I thought you got "swept" if you didn't go fast enough? I can't run - bad knees, and somewhat badly healed fractured ankle, but I can walk forever if I'm allowed to go at a steady pace.

runDisney officially states their minimum pace as 16 minutes per mile, but recommends that you train 15 minutes per mile to account for changes in elevation, bathroom breaks, character stops, etc. However, I looked at some of the past results for races and based on my calculations, the times for some of the people who are listed as finishing the race are slower than 16 minutes per mile. Does anyone have first hand experience with the "sweeping"?
