here we go mamas - a new month and a new thread



welcome old-timers and new mamas. This thread is for those who want support getting out there to move whether that's running, jogging, walking or wogging (yes, we have few pregnant mamas here - watch out for the water). We like to chat so the thread moves fast so hang on for the ride!

Subbing.

No run today yet. Hoping for one later (again). I did so much walking and being at the park yesterday with 2 little kiddoes that I didn't run in the end. Oh, well.

Grnmntnmama, I did Vermont City. It's a nice marathon, because the field isn't super duper fast (I wasn't even nearly last, and it took me 5 hours!) and because the way the course is set up, you run past the same point several times. So if you want to stash a pal there with supplies, it's easy to do! Plus the course support is great. There is a killer hill around mile 18 I think, and there is an in-out section in the first half of th emarathon with rolling hills and banked roads (it's highway) which was hard on the legs a bit. But I found pals to run with. Also, people do parts of the marathon as a relay so there are lots of areas with tons of people around to cheer! And Lake Champlain is lovely.

ok. so the muscles are a better (no more nausea), but I realized in the midst of all the soreness that my boob was sore (?) and not my pec; alas, I have a plugged duct, and I think I may have a slight fever, although need to check again after the hot beverage. Oouucchh. I had 2 plugged ducts and mastitis twice w/ DD but only 1 plugged duct so far with DS. I Hate these things! Is there any other remedy besides massaging it so hard you want to cry? This has worked in the past; hot towel, hot shower, and brutal massage He doesnt seem to drain it much when nursing 'cause its in a far outside spot. hmm....


funny story: my friends' DS got steamrolled at the park yesterday by Richard Gere. She said he apologized profusely and everyone in the park was looking on, probabaly wishing their kid had been taken down by Richard Gere

still aiming for a run in a bit, will "report' after

try to orient your ds so that his chin is pointed toward the plug -- this may mean you have to lay on the floor to nurse with his feet above your head but it works -- they have more pull on the bottom of the mouth. Also, try getting in a hot tub and soaking your breast, then try to hand express a bit after it's good and warm, and then once the water is cool enough for your ds, bring him in the tub and nurse him there. You could also try laying your ds on the floor and kneeling above him to nurse. My SIL swore by this (she got plugs all the time from wearing her running bra) method but it didn't work for me. I needed the chin orientation and the hot baths. Good luck!

Glad the rest of you is not as sore!

grnmtnmama - congrats on your marathon. I should have checked in here before the day - I was there (not running) ALL day. I would have loved to look for your number. I was inspired to start working out after being around that all day. My BIL came in 3rd and my SIL (his wife) came in 13th. My dh (not entered in the marathon - just there as a spectator) had to go find his other sister who was injured and ran (walked/helped her limp along) the last 4 miles with her. My dh is getting in such great shape these days I'm feeling like a slug. (he's preparing for a 5k). I need to get a jogging stroller. Until then I'm jumping rope at home and doing calasthenics (sp?). Many of my in-laws are runners and I'm surrounded by these athletic chizzled people - kind of intimidating.

I ran at 6:30 this morningand saw an amazing sunrise. Seeing it reflect off of the trees with their beautiful colours sent chills up my spine. I will get a run in tomorrow and Friday but then probably not again until Tuesday. I will try to do some pilates and yoga before the kids wake up those mornings.

I forget who provided the link to the recipe for pumpkin and black bean soup but I just printed it out. I think I will try it this week while dh is away - for some reason he hates black beans and is often suspicious of squash things. Thanks for the recipe! If you want I can post my black bean soup recipe.

We moved in to this house last January and yesterday I picked out colours to paint or house. I am dreading the work but excited at how it will look eventually.Right now everything is a basic greyish beige and quite dark and dull. When we are done, everything will be yellow and white except for the girls' bedroom and it will be blue, green and purple. Does anyone have a magic wand I could borrow to get this done? Even the ceilings and trim are beige so they will have to be painted too :

Saskiasmom - argh, plugged ducts are no fun. I've been successful with hot showers/warm cloths before nursing, massaging the area while nursing, and I second the thing about the chin pointed towards the spot. I hope it resolves quickly. I am amazed you still want to run... you must have a stellar bra!

I printed out the pumpkin and black bean soup recipe and I am hoping I can talk DH into trying it next week. We have an uncarved pumpkin and besides pumpkin bread and muffins, I need ways to use it up. Plus I have this fascination with recipes with black beans and anything orange (like sweet potatoes). I haven't actually tried any yet but I have a bunch lined up, DH just derailed me this past week with the Portabello Penne casserole thingy.

Shantimama - good luck with the painting. We painted our bedroom (walls, doors, and trim, but not ceiling thank goodness) when we moved in and I found it so stressful. We still need to do DD's room but I am debating having it done (so I can be mad at them instead of myself for any mistakes) versus being frugal and doing it ourselves.

We are planning to go to the track tonight so I can run intervals. I am a little achy today, but nothing that shouldn't work itself out. Also, my knees are doing better. The issue is still there but no serious pain. I am practicing leaning forward while running downhill and it is amazing how much less jarring it is.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Katherine, mama to Emma Kate (7) and Griffin (3)

Hello everyone!

I'm subbing for now.. still inconsistently running. The story of my life, yes?

Today and tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful around here, and with little amounts of homework I should be able to get in a few enjoyable runs. YES!!!

Has anyone heard from MonikitaUT? I know she's busy adjusting to her job, but I've been thinking about her. I hope everything is well, Monikita!

hi everyone!
I was planning a run this morning and then realized my boobs are WAYYYYYY too big for any sports bra I might own. And too big to run without. Must be all that milk I keep squirting into Leah's face bringing a whole new meaning to the idea of milk face. So holding off on that.

I second the idea of where's monikaut?

can someone post the pumpkin soup link here?

Goals for the rest of this week:
1. avoid eating all of my daughter's candy
2. walk 30 minutes 2 more times
3. stay hydrated (apparently a big problem given my chapped lips at the end of the work day).

just got back from 6.5 miles. My body is very sore. it has been a week of overdoing with food and exercise. ...not writing, or making art, or cleaning

So Im trying to get DS to nurse. I just got out of a 15 min. shower with hot water on my boob and expressed HARD. It hurt a lot, and I feel like weeping now. I think i 'popped' the plug, but I need him to nurse to clear it out and he WONT! He never wont! Im begging him "after all Ive done for you" and Dh is trying to explain that women dont often beg to have you suck on their breasts , but still nothin'. Craaaapppp. My boob huuurrrrttttttsss

The reason I can run w/ a plugged duct is that my breasts are little

have good runs/walks/wogs everyone

Hello all! popping in since I caught it at the beg of the month. naking

started running again aug 1, and have run every day but 10/11 since. the first week in oct, i injured my left knee and satout a few days. then last sat, my back went out! went to the er sun and the doc did an adjustment. still sore at times, but went a mile last night and again this am.

i'm slow - my miles have beeen about 9:21-9:23. once i'm more certain my back's good to go i'll work on increasing my speed and distance. but for not doing any sort of cardio for years, i feel really good about my progress.

kinsey43, I would not call 9:21 slow!!! Especially considering your knee, back, and that you've only been back at it for a couple of months. WTG!

disregard the fact that erin INSISTS her sister needs the "pillow" and we have to jam her little head into it. Leah does just fine with head control.

Is there an echo in here?? Trust me that is not slow! A lot of these mamas are running that speed or slower (including me). That is a great speed! Welcome to the group!!

Kerc- Abolsutely adorable kiddos!

saskiasmom- Just keep offering and let him nurse all day if neccessary. Try and rest up a bit today. Like that's possible with kids I know.

Eks- Good luck on intervals! I'd send you my mom for the painting if I could. She repainted my entire house nearly when we moved in before ds was born. She loves it. If it had been just me I'd of hired soemone too!

Shantimama- Yay for a morning run!! Moments like that help me keep heading out the door even when I don't want to.

I'll be doing a quick run after work. Dp is working tonight and dd is still not feeling well. It will be comfort food and the Wiggles this evening I think.

thanks, eksmom! i just feel sluggy, yk?

kristin, your babes are adorable! Leah's a little chunk! so cute. w always tried to "help" C w/the pillow, too, lol.

I meant to say earlier that I need to pay attention to hydration, too. My lips have been chapped by the evenings as well.... it only took me three days to figure out that I need to drink more - duh!.

No, 9:20 miles are not slow. 9:20 miles are faster than most of the women here. The point is it get out the door and get some good cardio-vascular exercise so that we can live good, long lives.

Kerc, thanks for sharing the photos. As always, beautiful trees.

ah - be greatful for small boobs when bf'ing. When I was dealing with plugged ducts, painful breasts, etc. I had to sleep with pillows to prop them up when the babe wasn't nursing. I am a 30E now - At the height of my breastfeeding life, I was a 32J ouch.

kerc - they are adorable. Walking sounds like a good plan until you are ready to run again.

beans are cooking ready to turn into yummy baked beans for tomorrow. Maybe I will put some pumpkin in the crockpot and try and make the soup this weekend. The kids love pumpkin gingerbread so I will use up all of the pumpkin.

I need patience when it comes to my education - all see right now is years of studying ahead of me until I can start bringing in some $$$. I am sick of tight finances but don't want to take a job and then not have the time to study and take care of my kids. How did you all do it? dh cracked a joke the other day about me applying for a job at the nuclear facility (as if!) because it pays well instead of studying for the next 5 years. When I asked him if he was prepared to take care of cooking, cleaning, kid raising, etc, etc while I am at work his face went white. There is no way he could have the freedom to work the way he does and still have such a nice home life if I wasn't here - too bad my work doesn't show up in the bank account. We got a flyer in the mail today looking for people to deliver Sears catlogues. Maybe that would so something to help.

Hi Mamas, I am subbing too.

I did a 50 minute bike this AM. It was exhausting. I think today I need to listen to that deep core of fatigue inside my body. Maybe will do some gentle yoga this afternoon if the kids nap.

Will come back later for more personals.

Love, ND

Wow everyone has been so chatty lately. No time for personals again. I need to go play scrabble with Kelsy. Thinking of you all.

Planning a run in an hour or so with dh. Great job everyone.

ND-Sorry about the increased bleeding. hope this is the end of it. Great job on the 50 minute bike and 50 min run. Hope you had fun with your friends. The picture is great.

My dad bought DH life insurance for the next 3 years since he is the breadwinner (dh, that is) and rides his bike every day to/from work. Turns out, Dh learned, it is highly recommended to get SAHMs life insurance too because your work = $150,000/yr! No kidding! We could have told you that! We manage by not buying anything but groceries and paying bills; no clothes, no eating out, no going out, our furniture includes a collection of chairs that we found on the side of the road over the years - broken throw aways - that we repaired, stained, and have had for 7years! The most recent one I picked up on my way home from the Y one morning; slung it over my head and continued on my way. My *best* shower towel is 16 years old! I know this b/c it was monogrammed (a gift) and includes the date: 1989! We have 3 more years of this, and then maybe we can buy some new towels and chairs

sophmama - wow! your family is fast.

my3kids - thanks for the report on VCM. i've known several people to run it and it sounds like a pretty fun time. it would also be great because i wouldn't have to travel.

still taking it easy here. i thought about trying to go climbing, but the reality is my body is pooped and even dh said that i should knock it off for a few days. we'll go for a family walk in the woods in a little bit and tonight i have some major organizing to do for my soap biz. all that will make me very sleepy.

Hi ladies!!

Boy, out for the day and the thread is two pages long already!! Thanks for linking me to the new thread, I really appreciate that. How do you change what the link actually says? I think some one asked that a little bit back but I didnt' see the answer (been struggling to keep up with the thread and life the past few days). LIke if the link is actually http and www and all that stuff, but I want it to say "Christmas idea" instead? Hope this is making sense.

I was here in spirit this morning, even though I got up too late to check in. I have been up more than normal the last few nights with ds3 and increasing the mileage so I have been needing much more sleep. Been going to bed earlier and still sleeping through the 6AM alarm. I know it will get easier as the kids get bigger so just dealing with it right now. Only had time for 5 miles this morning but it felt great!

ND, thank you SOOOO much for the knitting link!! I can't wait to try it out! I am super excited! Sorry for the bleeding and what you are going through.

I have a GPS, although I haven't used it for a while since I have to run on the TM. I love it though! It is so much fun and really great for training.


Well, I've printed off the pumpkin and lasagna recipes, thank you! Going to try one next week! Oh, the pumpkins that you carve are different than the pumpkins that you eat. I found that out last year.

Great job everyone for your dedication to running, healthy eating, balancing your lives and families, and supporting us all here too!

easy way to explain:

click on the earth icon above the text box you type in.
it popos up a dialog box that says text you want displayed for the link, then a second one that says something like link.

when you close those boxes it will have inserted the right html language into your text box.

Can you expand? I have a memory once of boiling down and mashing the flesh of a pumpkin to use in pumpkin bread... I think it was just a regular carving type pumpkin. I thought the only other special kind were those small sweeter ones that they bill as "pie pumpkins." I'll be bummed if all this other pumpkin is good for is seeds.
