Re: Hot running (newish) Momma's thread...

had a three week PP client at the clinic today; baby number three. Just a reminder to do a bit of neck stretching after you have been sitting down breastfeeding. That was the main cause of her complaint! Good reminder! Also, bring baby to the boob, not boob to the baby! It is hard to do at first bu...

Anners, must be an 18 month thing. Isaiah is obsessed with saying bum, holding his bum, sticking his head in mine, asking if my or daddy's bum has "poo" in it, etc. GROSS! :D

Re: Hot running (newish) Momma's thread...

Yes, it has been awhile!!! Sounds like scrummy and FP are doing great. Things are a little nuts around here.

Re: What is a marathon pace run supposed to feel like?

Barbara, I think you need to believe your marathon pace is realistic, or it absolutely WON'T be realistic. I think you are definitely capable of running a 5:45 pace, but if you're unsure, the doubts will creep in just when you don't want them to. Why not go out at 6:00 pace like you originally plan...

Running Mania According to Grade 7s

My class of grade 7s will be creating their own websites next week with our super-cool iPads. So this week we brainstormed criteria for a successful website, then used that criteria to evaluate Running Mania against it. The kids used Google Docs to send me their ideas. I have pasted a few below! Tho...

Re: Joint instruction of a clinic.....

Wanted to wish you luck! Great advice above about outlining expectations ahead of time. I taught the 10k and Half clinics (at different times, of course) jointly and it was soooo great for the clinic talks and covering each other off when someone was away. Also, we always alternated where we ran so ...

Re: Race pace strategy

there's too much time invested in training to take a chance on a race day, especially an "A" race. I've been kind of struggling with the other side of that- there's too much time invested to be wondering if I could have done better. As has been pointed out here by several people, the tric...

Sometimes on training runs or even in a race when tired I try speeding up rather than slowi...

This may have been from the hamburgers I ate for supper the night before. Or coffee in the morning? Maybe peanut butter on toast isn't working for me anymore.
