Hi you guys! Thanks for starting a new thread Kerc
LoftMama, I would wear a mask, I don’t know what kind of filtration level you would need to keep out mold spores though…. ND comes from a Richard Scarry character who drives too fast, is a bit disruptive, and always looks like he is having fun
Patti, I hope you are having nice weather and that you are having some peaceful walks. How are you doing Mama? How is the rest of your family?
GrnMnt. Your workout will be of benefit to you even if it wasn’t as planned. I always feel that at the point in marathon training that you are, doing less than intended is actually better, because it allows you to rest. You have the base that you need for the race, and rest will give you more strength in the end. I ran the Marine Corps marathon and it was a blast. There were marines all along the route singing stuff to us and encouraging us on the route. And the scenery was amazing. I am excited for you.
Shanti, I am sorry about your friend
Your weekend sounds nice. I still feel like a dork that I didn’t figure it out that your Thanksgiving is earlier than the US thanksgiving. Doh!
Hi Kalynn’s mom. Welcome. I usually eat something light like a piece of toast before a race. I also like having some caffeine. I usually try to eat at least an hour before the race. But a 5K is short enough and similar enough to normal training runs that really anything can go. Good for you for doing a race. You will be inspired.
Mamabeth, the positioning thing is so important. Both in terms of getting a labor to happen, and to have a productive labor. Have you seen this website? Optimal fetal positioning. optimal fetal positoning
and more fetal positioning
It discusses different exercises you can do to encourage good fetal positioning and make your labor easier. And you know what? You have a lot of days left before next Monday. You are doing great Mama. You
2Babies, that sounds like a good plan Mama
Welcome home Holly’s mom, how cool is that that you felt good for the wedding. Woohoo, we missed you Mama.
Grnmtn: what was my first race? Well I did a 1 mile cross country race when I was 10 for our school’s field day. But as far as an official race, that must have been a cross country race I did in high school. Saksia’s Mom, your first race sounds totally hard core….and fun!
I ran today, did a short 30 minute loop that I did when I was pregnant with DD2. I am in so much better shape this time around. The run was really nice, I still have some areas of muscle fatigue from my runs this weekend, but I felt relaxed and comfortable. I also got signed up for the Y so I can finally go swimming. YEAH!
Here are some pics of the little dingos at the park after our run on Sunday. I haven’t shared them in a while..Little Dingo #2
and Little Dingo #1
I swear, DD1 cavorts like a little goat. Do you know what I am talking about? When baby goats leap and jump and race around all crazy? That is just like my daughter. It is the cutest thing ever.
