Well... I've been gone for ages... BUT I can happily say that pregnancy has NOT been detrimental to my ability to run either. In fact, giving birth sky rocketed my level of pain tolerance. The only complications I've noticed after pregnancy have been finding TIME to run, and a babysitter to watch my kid. :P

Well, I think it's official, now that I've run on a cooler day... my average pace has gone up by a minute/km! :lol: I'm actually pleasantly surprised that it took this long, haha. It's a bit more difficult to run with my natural stride, it's more of a shuffle so I'm glad I'm not going too far. I'm glad to still be feeling good, no real discomfort or pain, so I'll just keep reminding myself that one day I WILL get that "feels so good to go fast" feeling back!!

I''m a bit frustrated with the bra situation though. I got a new bra yesterday- this store in Oakville was having a 50% off sale! I've been doubling up and it's been OK, but lately I've been having more and more difficulty getting the bras on and off. Also, because I normally wear a more demi sort of style just because of my shape, and because I hate uniboobs, the bras are a bit lower or V-shaped and it's looking a bit stripper-esque and silly (which honestly has been a BIT fun, but it looks ridiculous!). However they weren't going anywhere. I wasn't breathing as easily, but they weren't moving and once I got the bras on I was good to go till I had to strip down. :lol: I got a Juno bra (moving comfort) in the next size up from what I'd normally get, and tried it today on its own. Not enough- girls were screaming. I also kind of hate it (the shape, the clasp, the uniboob look), but it does seem like it would hold things in pretty well. I think it's just a tad too big now- it will probably be OK eventually, esp towards the end, and a bit better than what was going on before if I wear it over top of another bra. I think I'm kind of in between- a bit bigger than I was, not QUITE the next size, but heavier and needing more support if that makes sense.

ETA... Juno bra over top of the Vixen bra (moving comfort) FTW!!!!! I still have to struggle out of the vixen a bit, but at least it's just one, not two that are hard to take off. Still some cleavage, but I'm not about to complain about that as long as it's not over the top! I've been waiting ages for that!! 8)

Glad you've found a solution to the bra issue for the time being QuickChick! Hopefully whatever you have purchased now will carry you through until the end and then post delivery. It's soooo hard to tell what size you will be throughout all those changes.

I got a belly band today... I may have to wave the white flag if it doesn't work. The last two times I've tried to run I've had to stop- I had this really painful pulling feeling between my belly button and the top of my shorts. At 32 1/2 weeks I've lasted awhile, but I'm really hoping the belly band will keep me comfy enough that I can keep going. I love running and don't want to stop!

Bahaha... You're too funny Colleen!! Enjoy it beeatches... I'm already dreaming about hitting the track next spring!! I'm comin' for you!!

PS... Um, I haven't tried running again since the w/end... it's hot!! And I can't bring myself to feel guilty about it!! And this little one is pulling all sort of weird gymnastical moves that are making my insides feel like they're being used as a jungle gym... Not painful but it doesn't really make me want to jostle things around too much. :)

Ok, Moms, I have a question...

Does anyone out there have a link to a good site or company that sells nursing necklaces? I need something. Morgan likes to grab things when she is nursing, and if I don't have the right kind of shirt on, the thing she grabs is a handful of me. It hurts.

I know about Mommy Necklaces, but nothing on their site speaks to me. Any advice?

Thanks :)

Etsy!! I have my eye on so many different ones but have never bought one. Now that my last babe has 7 (almost 8) teeth I am not sure I will get one in the end. :cry:

I checked Etsy, and everything seems to be crocheted. I didn't know how safe that would be??

And how can your baby have 8 teeth!? Didn't you JUST have her? (I know, I know, I can't believe Morgan is 5 months either)

I came to see how Lisa's running was going.... it's unusually quiet in here.... hard to creep you guys when you are keeping things secret...

Did FP get a nursing necklace?
How many teeth does prat's youngest have now?
Has AndyM started to organize herself to sign up and get to the Boilermaker race?

you guys are just leaving a nosy nelly hanging!

My child is obsessed with running at the moment. DH is coaching in the mornings, so we've been doing a LOT of stroller running. Now I get "Mama, I need to go for a run". She asks me each day if "you still sick mama? you all better? we can go running?", since she was so disappointed when I was sick two weeks ago and we didn't run. I actually have a hard time getting out for solo runs when she's awake on the weekends, because she throws a giant tantrum because "she needs to go running toooooo!". DH requires mad amounts of diversion skills!

I have to organize myself NOW for the Boilermaker? Sheesh. I have such a hard time registering for races in advance. I DID manage to get into the Ottawa Beer run though :D I will make sure to update after that one.

Running going awesome over here! And looking forward to the 9 Run Run half in a couple of weeks. I just might be in PB territory. :D

Enjoy your stroller running Scrummy (and others)....I so miss those days...oh and the ones where my child had an bedtime earlier than me!! Not that she was ever a great stroller runner, mind you.

Thanks for asking Miss Smiles....or shall we call you Mrs. Smiles now?

Hey ladies!!! Checking in... I stopped running at about 33 weeks. One day it felt great, then the next 2 tries hurt so I walked them in. It got really hot after that and I was ok with not running, but I can't WAIT to get back at it!! In 2006 I was injured and didn't run for 12 weeks, and it didn't take long to get back in shape. I have to keep telling myself I WILL be back!! I biked till about 35 weeks or so, then same thing- one day it just hurt. My bike is pretty upright so that's why I was ok for so long.
Baby is due in 8 days! Holy $&@$!!!!
I'm feeling great... Enjoying my last few days of nesting. :)
I would LOVE to do the Boilermaker this year but I don't want to commit to any race more than a month out, so maybe next year. Plus I have to get my alcohol tolerance back... Hehe. I can see doing the Hair of the Dog race maybe on New Years Day, and Sporting Life. A 5k or two also. I'd love to be in shape to run a really good half or two next fall.

Aw, too bad I'll be just flying out of TO that day. :)

Don't have huge expectations for getting back into race shape this year-- next fall is a good goal. Being off for injury for 12 weeks isn't the same as the changes your body is going through now. Just getting back to running and activity will be awesome, and yes, you can do that gradually. :)

Agree - your body has changed, your hormones will be wacky and you'll be sleep deprived! it's different for sure!

That being said, I ran a half at almost-PB pace when I was not quite 7 months postpartum. The PB was about 2.5 years old at that point, and I wasn't even in half shape (let alone PB) when I got pregnant.

Yeah I figure fall is pretty reasonable. I may be able to run a decent 15k at bread and honey in June too. Wouldn't expect a pb but probably something under 1:15, say, would be reasonable by then (almost 8 mos pp). We'll see though, no goals for now and I won't be putting any pressure on myself goal wise in spring. By fall, almost a year pp, it's game on!

Yes, I did order a necklace :) mommynecklaces had a sale on dangling donuts, I got the Jubilee, with a garnet donut. Just waiting for it to arrive. In the meantime, Morgan still likes to grab handfuls of me with her talons.

I had to take a week off running because I got vertigo. After treating it with western medicine (prescription and aerius), as well as cranial-sacral therapy and chiro, it is MUCH improved. I still have a bit of a low grade headache, but I have minor dizzy spells - not dizzy and sick all the time. I ran yesterday, and it even went ok. Mapmyrun has been crazy on my phone, I did 3.5km according to Garmin, and MMR said I did 9.8 km. Apparently when I stopped at the lights at Sherwood Drive, MMR thought I ran frantically back and forth across the intersection 9 times. :roll:

John tells me "When I get big, I will run faster than you." I usually say "Probably, dude."

Thanks for indulging me :D Scrummy, C is such a cutie, and sounds like a great motivator/cheerleader (though I respect that solo runs would be nice "you-time"). AndyM - get prepped! I'm not on your case for nothing ;))
I'm glad QuickChick's still doing well, and that FP did order the necklace.

Just dropped by to say I'm a Great Aunt three times now.
My niece had baby number 3 yesterday. She has two boys (age 4 and 2.5) and was absolutely sure no. 3 was a boy.
She had a girl and this time decided she didn't want to know the gender before.
When Baby Girl (no name yet) was born she asked her dh ..."what is it". When he told her, her words..."you've got to be kidding" :lol: :lol:
It will be interesting to see how big brothers adapt. Last week the 2.5 year old adamantly said..."no new baby here" :lol: :lol: 4 year old added..."there are no toys for a baby girl in this house" Almost like he had a premonition :shock: :wink:

I am running three times a week about a half hour at the most. I "raced" the Melissa's 10k this past Sunday. I didn't pushed the pace but still finished in less than an hour and was surprised that I did. Yay for base fitness!
