Speed Work Post-Baby

Embrace the Pain

Confession: the last time I did speedwork outside was years ago (like 3 or 4).  When I was in Iraq, it was impossible for me to find an area on the base where I could run without worrying about hummvees, tanks, or even indirect fire, so I began to do my speedwork on the treadmill.  I […]

Race for Recovery – the numbers

I decided to break the Race for Recovery down by the numbers – I’ve seen this method used several times recently in blog posts and really love the style! Don’t forget to check out photos of all the runners who participated! I just want to say THANK YOU one last time to everyone who supported […]

Remembering How to Run Uncomfortably

First real "race" postpartum

I am slowly starting to feel more and more like myself when I run.  I’m not at my pre-pregnancy shape or pace (and don’t expect to be there for some time), but I feel stronger each day I run. Since my son was born (almost 2 months ago!!!), I have tried to take it one […]

The Long Road Ahead

NYRR Mini 10k

This past weekend was my first post-baby race.  As I already stated, it wasn’t an all-out race for me – but truth be told, I did push myself.  My lungs were burning and legs were hurting at various points during the 6.2 miles. My pace for those short miles was slower than the pace I’ve […]

Running Post-Partum: How Soon is Too Soon?

postpartum running

Are you on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook? Let’s connect!  ——————- I ran 5 days after the birth of my first son – an easy 1 mile run on the treadmill and then slowly increased the mileage over the next few weeks.  By the time he was 5-6 weeks old, I was comfortably running 30-40 miles/week which included long runs […]

How did you do in 2011?

With only a few days left in 2011, it’s normal to reflect upon the past 12 months – smile with the good, hope to learn from the bad, and decide upon some goals for the upcoming year. After reading [and loving!] a similar post from Miss Zippy, a fellow blogger and FitFluential Ambassador, I decided […]
