Wow Nat that does look like a lot, amazing amazon woman you!

Monday - 5 mile loop, nice and easy (I'm still fighting that cold and it feels like a resurgence today )
Tuesday - 3.3 mile
Wednesday - 5 mile loop
Thursday - off
Friday - 30 min with dh (nice and easy)
Saturday - speed training - mile warmup, 6 150's, 4 quarter mile repeats, 6 150's, mile warm down (probably about 3 1/2 miles total)
Sunday - long run, at least 8, may try for more. I want to wait and see how I feel after the speed workout.

I think allergies and cold are horrible to lungs...mine have been giving me alot of grief with the recent cold.

mamabeth -- i'm in austin, tx. not as humid as atlanta, but darn near close. plus, it's been raining, raining, raining here. you can see the steam rising off the road.

just got in from my run. decided to see just how far i could go (run, that is) w/o having to walk. the route is 2.3 miles. walked/2min, ran/10min , walked/2min, ran/5min, walked/2min, ran/5min, walked/3min.

for me, that's super great! tomorrow i don't run, but we'll see if i can keep it up wed, thurs, and fri.

dd just woke up (i run before dh goes to work). she said, "you're all sweaty and yucky, mommy. went on a run?" then she patted my shoulder and said, "you did a great job."

Hi, I am glad to meet you all, fellow runners and mommies! I am going out the door today for six miles, which, if I actually pull it off, will be the longest I've run in the last three years! My sister and I are training for our second marathon this October; the first one was 2001 and it seems a LOT harder this time around! ( I am fatter and older, blech!) : Good running to all!

Its official - I am a MANIAC!! DH forgot to take the stroller out of the trunk, so I put DD (2 yo) in the old Snugli we had and walked for 30 mins. I think I get bonus points for that one!! I actually tried to run a little, but that wasn't happening!! I'm just glad DD is skinny!!!! LOL

Aprildawn- I am in Austin too!! ANd lately, it HAS been as humid as Atlanta!

SS- Thanks for being my inspiration!!

BTW- This is 5 days in a row that I have exercised!! I am going to keep with mostly walking until I am able to run 2 mins, then I will start the San Bernadino program.

OT- I am really tired of being fat, I think I am going to stop.

thistle you are a maniac. just be sure to take it slow enough you can keep up the pace w/out getting hurt. snuggli---ummm...I'd put aside $$ every darn week for that jogger. Watch your back with the snuggli. here's a link for a wrap type carrier. I have never tried it, but maybe you have an old sheet you could use to rig up a back carrier.here's the link

I have a friend who has the german one (didymos?) that hiked in yosemite with her 3 yo in it while she was 5 months pregnant. I want to rig one up to give it a go, but we have a nice backpack so I never make the effort to do so.

Kerc- the Snuggli is NOT in my training plan-LOL!! It was just a stopgap for the day. I have a good framed backpack carrier (Tough Traveller) but it is in the car TOO!! My plan is to just use the umbrella stroller for walks and run a few days a week w/o dd for now. I've been on the lookout for used, even tried freecycle. The ones at the resale shop are $100 and we dont have it to spare right now.

gotcha. I was getting worried about your poor back!

have you tried posting a sign at your local library or someplace similar? something like ISO used jogger, have 40 bucks to spend + could trade kids clothes. or whatever ya got. The ad would be free.

whoa! Am I on a new planet or are there some new running mamas here? I'm out for a week and feel like I've missed a month. Hi to geekgolightly, aprildawn, and vwgirlbeth!

Well, I made it to Mexico and back in one piece (had to go for work last week). I did not get any GI bugs (thank goodness!) but I did OD on caffiene (cokes and coca-cola light - diet coke is only in the US and the light tastes different but I digress...) so now I'm going through withdrawal. I wanted to minimize the number of times I pumped each day and also don't really like the taste of bottled water so I drank way too much coke and beer. I feel bloated, fat, and have a headache.

But, I ran this morning -- I actually pulled myself out of bed at 4:30 and ran 3.5 miles at a 9 min/mile pace. I have to be serious if I'm going to complete that 10-miler on July 24 - yikes! Oh, and my lethargy in recent weeks was not due to being pg -- came the day before my trip -- always fun to travel with her isn't it?

Glad to see everyone is running a lot. I'm shooting for running 4 times this week and working back up to 5-6 miles.

It's good to be back - I've missed you all

~Hope

let's see

Monday: trail run lunchtime
Tuesday: off or trail run
Wednsday: long run w/jogger
Thursday: off
Friday: long run or bike ride
Saturday: off
Sunday: super long and hard bike ride

it's a tough week for me, dh is working extra for a sales meeting which means no breaks for me until Thursday i need to sign up for a race or something so i have something to train for!

Thistle - good for you for being so committed as to try to run with a snugli and even an umbrella stroller. someone will shine on you and you will get the equipment you need with that kind of an attitude.

Welcome vwgirlbeth and sontanned!

Everyone here rocks! I'm so happy I have you to keep me motivated.

Plan for the week
Sun-waterskiing(got up on one ski again, but chickened out before I went around a turn)
Mon-4 miles
Tuesday- 3 miles with the double stroller(wish me luck it's at least 100 pounds)
Wednesday-3 miles with the double stroller again. I'm working and dh will be away.
Thursday- 5-6 miles
Friday 5-6 miles
Saturday- 3-4 miles possibly waterskiing

I haven't used my rollerblades in a long long time. It's too hilly around here with having to push the jogger too. Maybe I'll try it again. I loved how it helped my outer hips.

Everyone's plans sound great. I really hope to increase my time and distance soon. I'd love to do a 10 mile run.

Had to add my baby turned 2 today. : Fiona

Happy Birthday Fiona!!!
Love, love, love that name!

Way to run mamas!! You ladies push me and encourage me so much! I went out for a 30 minute walk today and found myself jogging here and there. And guess what? The pain is starting to subside a little bit. I wasn't as out of breath and I only got one mild side cramp. I set out to jog for 1 minute and walk 4 minutes and instead i jogged 3 minutes! I might have been able to go even further but I didn't want to do too much in one day. This was my first time at even attempting to jog. I will do it again tomorrow!!!

This is even encouraging my husband. Today when i got back from my walk/run he decided to go for a jog. He has never done that!!!

I will resist the urge to weigh myself. But I will do some measurements tonight so that I have something to compare the new me to!! (that's kinda scarey!!!)

Okay, I 'm gonna take an attempt at planning a schedule. I'm really notorious for failing to follow a schedule. I usually like to plan more than I can realistically do, then if I do at least some of it, I feel good.

Sunday - ran 3 miles with jog stroller
Monday - off. (since I'm already with dd NAK for bedtime!)
Tues - 3 miles in the morning with jog stroller
Wed - speed workout of some sort
Thurs - off
Fri - Run for Glory 5K with ds
Sat - 4 miles, slow, with jog stroller

I don't know if it's do-able. I have 3 mamas due this week, too. (all first-timers, though, so they're more likely to goof up next week's schedule.)

Good morning!
It's great to keep seeing so many mamas out there running...woo hoo for us! Welcome to all, and it's awesome to have a second-time marathoner. You'll have to give us tips bc I don't think there's anybody else on the thread who's done it!

Here's my schedule. I'm taking it easy this week because I'm on vacation (at home, just not working) and I'm racing Sunday.

Monday--3 miles (done, with stroller)
Tuesday--maybe 3?
Wed--5
Thurs--5
Fri--3
Saturday--3
Sunday-- Peachtree 10K!

I'd so love to break an hour, but that would mean 9:45 pace or so and there's gonna be a million people. So I'll do my best but I'll definitely be happy with the finisher t-shirt!

Mmmmm...I'll also take some cyber-cookies! at least I can dream...trying to lose these last 5 pounds is very hard. maybe it's the nursing? sorry, other thread!
Peace.

Can I have my cookies, now, too? My dd is still nursing a lot, so I can eat at least 2, I think!
I just came back from my 3 miles pushing dd - in 29:15 even!
Now to get the kids off and get my shower.
Wow, I'm in awe of those of you who manage to run nearly every day. Hope I can keep my schedule this week!

And I am in awe of those that can run sub 10 min miles with a jog stroller !!! What does your speed workout entail?

You know I always made the joke the only reason I ran was so that I could eat what I want!

So I ran a little more than 3.3, I'm guessing closer to 3.5. I had to run by the dry cleaners to pick up my birkies...he was punching some extra holes in them for me.

So tomorrow is another long run. I know I'm starting to run a little faster, I'm glad to see it happening somewhat naturally.

mamabeth, maybe you should take the day off before the race so that you're nice and rested? Or atleast just do a short slow jog?

Happy belated birthday Fiona

hnybee - nice work!!! Keep it up! It's addictive, isn't it?

Well I did my 3 today with the double jogger. Very slow pace. Ususally dh pushes the jogger when we run together or I run alone.

Too funny about the cookies. That is my excuse for things. Well I ran and am nursing so I deserve that treat.

Good luck at Peachtree mamabeth. I'm sure you'll do great. With that many people I'm sure you'll be running farther than a 10k. I'm sure it will take you some time to even get to the starting line so take that into account too.

Thanks for the birthday wishes for my little one.

You know when I run a big race I always start my watch when I cross the start line...that way when I finish I know what my time for the 10k really was. For some of the races it's been as much as a couple of minutes off.

i love races with the fancy shoe timers that can really tell you what your time was. But I only ever did one of those races.

it seems to take forever to get any faster, as far as i know i'm still running 9.5 minute miles after running for 3 plus years. sigh. once i was on a post race shuttle bus listening to all these hash-house harriers complaining about their 7 minute miles and it made me feel pretty low.

but in the end i don't care. i brought a big batch of cyber cookies for everyone!

i cant wait until im like you guys and can run miles at a time and do races. running is so amazing.

went and ran with seth. we walk a half mile to the local elementary. this is the sculpture that we go around in the play yard. i wish i had this kind of sculpture in my elementary.

http://www.woodland-heights.org/Phot...s/travisau.jpg

it was my final day of the first week in my running program (couch to 5 k). on thursday or friday i can start week TWO!

im SO EXCITED that i get to run more and more and more and more every week. today i felt a bit of a strain on my muscles, but i dont think there has been any shin pain, so im keeping my fingers crossed. i mean, i have felt sharp pain in my left shin, but im hoping its not a big deal. it only happens for a little bit and then goes away and never when im running.

im scared of it starting up so im following this to the letter and im only doing 11 minute miles so i should be able to do this.

yay geek!! you're doing great and before you know it you'll be doing the 5K. Are you signed up for a race or just going for the 3.1? Cool sculpture too...the kids can pretend to be dino-hunters or whatever.

I really am going to take it easy this week, I think. Today I ran with dd to this park by our house that I had just never gone to (it's on my regular running route), and it's so amazing! It's like a wooden castle with all kinds of cool stuff to play on and crawl through. Also, the rec center nearby has gymnastics and swim lessons, cheaper than the Y. I feel dumb bc we've lived here for 3 years and not checked it out. There's also a 1.7 mile loop that's paved, not concrete! It's like finding gold in your backyard! So I ended up running for about an hour but slowly and with a break for dd to play on the playground.

Anyway, I'm taking tomorrow off running and then I'll run slow on Saturday before the race. I promise.

And I always time myself, even in smaller races. I don't even have a chip (they only give them to the first and second waves) so it'll be up to me. I just have to remember to not look at my watch right as I cross the finish line so my picture comes out pretty! They send it to you online, how cool is that, and I will smile for it and post it here when the time comes.

Happy running and have fun!
Peace.

Welcome to the new mamas!

I'm a little late, but I'll still post my goals for this week.

Monday: I ran two miles
Tuesday: I walked half a mile and ran about a mile and a half. I weeded like crazy on Sun, and am still wicked sore.
Wed: run about 30 min
Thurs: walk at least two miles, and run as inspired
Friday : run 30 min
Sat: walk as much as possible (we are having a 3rd of July party)
Sun: same as sat.

Anyway, congrats to all the mamas who are following through on their goals. My life seems to have gotten really busy all of a sudden, but I'm really trying to fit some sort of exercise every day, to get out for a walk even if I don't plan on running, and usually when I intend to just walk, I end up running for at least part of the time anyway.

Happy running mamas!
