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

Is anyone else eating WAY too much of their kids candy!? I had to put it in the freezer last night. Yeah, I know it's there, but at least it's not sitting beside my computer anymore! OOOoohh. This is a great idea. A much better idea than using them to make mini-chocolate-bar-brownies-in-a-coffee-mu...

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

Great pictures :D I loved seeing all the cute halloween pics of the kiddies on FB the past few days. I am glad that you ladies are talking about waiting to potty train. Some of the ladies on my mommy forum have been talking about or trying it for months already, and our kids are only 19-20 months. I...

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

looks like someone set a new 5k benchmark for me this past weekend :- The pressure is on after this baby is born! :mrgreen: Me or other Jess? Are you chasing me and I'm chasing Scrummy? I don't want to do another 5k again soon.... I thought I could chase you, but I am not so sure anymore :lol:

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

Congratulations Rockstar! Your supply should be pretty well regulated by 6 weeks, so running likely won't have much of an effect (unless you decide to train for an ultra or something else crazy :lol: ) I started back at about 6 weeks, but my body wasn't ready. I pulled the plug after 2 or 3 runs an...

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

Race start is 48h (or less) from now and I am feeling nervous. I haven't truly trained and tapered for a race since my last marathon in 2007. I have a plan and will race it to the best to my ability. I have done everything I can with the time I had, and what my body had in me. I am looking forward ...

Is my butt getting big? V's newest word is BUM. She comes up to me from behind and hugs my BUM. I'm 19 weeks now and I swear I look like I was at 30 weeks last time. My belly is huge. I was pretty good about exercising until 2 weeks ago. The elliptical was starting to get difficult (though I guess I...

I think it does. I walked/ran 3k on my lunch break in about 30 minutes, and I swear it felt like the same effort as a 9k tempo run ;)
