Forums: Connect with Another Mother Runner

A huge, sweaty welcome to the another mother runner forums, an exclusive but inclusive—that makes sense, right?—place to connect, chat, ask, analyze, and dream big with other runners. The beauty of this running forum is that, unlike our Facebook page, the status updates don’t float by in less than a day. Here they are, accessible whenever you need the 411.

Anything is game here: questions about training, nutrition, sports bras, leaking on the run, whatever. Two categories we think are pretty cool: a for mother runners, where you can find a BRF (best running friend) and free gear swap, a place to find a home for your newish gear you never use. (The recipient pays only for shipping; thank you in advance for respecting this rule.)

So whatever you've got—IT band problems; stroller questions; a picture-perfect race; shoe issues—lay it on the collective us. If you'd like to nominate a category we forgot, email us at runmother [at] gmail [dot] com. We're all here to push each other across the finish line again and again.

Post Miscounted weeks on training plan. A week ahead!
on: February 14, 2016, 21:45

So I just realized tonight that I am a week ahead on my training plan for an upcoming half marathon. I did my 11 miler this weekend thinking I was going into the next two weeks as taper. My event is on March 5 so I am a week ahead. Actually 3 weeks til event! How do I recoup? Do I add another long week and if so what distance should be my long run this week? Or should I do an 8 or 9 miler this week then 6 the next and then go into event like that? Any insight??

No worries! Coach Christine's advice: repeat the week you just did, with a 9-10 mile long run, then jump back into the last 2 weeks as is.

Thanks and good luck!
