#137: Now What: How to Shift Gears Post-Race

You’ve crossed that finish line you’ve been dreaming about—and training for–for months. Now what? Sarah and Dimity answer this question with the help of Larissa Rivers, a mother runner and marketing manage of running at Strava, our fave GPS/social media app. Larissa tells about the clever social media campaign Strava has launched to encourage folks to continue setting fitness goals for the waning weeks of 2014. After Larissa, the ladies answer (recorded) call-in questions from AMR tribemates, including how to deal with the inevitable post-race funk. They endorse Phoebe’s suggestion to focus on a different hobby, yet they are slightly divided on maintenance miles…

Watch Out Boston: Here Comes Bethany!

Watch Out Boston: Here Comes Bethany!

Big day around AMR, as we’ve got a new columnist to announce. Ms. Bethany Meyer, a talented writer and runner who introduces herself much better below than I ever could. We are working with Stonyfield Organic Yogurt, and they generously offered us a number for a mother runner in the Boston Marathon. Having run with Bethany at Ragnar and having worked with her on essay in Tales From Another Mother Runner, we knew she was a perfect fit—especially because she and I—Dimity—share the exactly same birthday. (Yeah, Taurus mother runners!) We know you’ll agree. Bethany will write one more post in December, and once her training ramps up in January, she’ll grace the pages of AMR twice a month…

Sof Sole + Saucony = treating my feet right

Hump Day Giveaway: Sof Sole Insoles + Week’s Worth of Running Socks

As I get ready to toe the line of marathon #2 in as many months, I think about all the things that had to go right to keep me upright (read: injury free). I had to give my body time to recover after my first 26.2, without letting my mileage or effort drop to nil. I had to commit to flexibility, form, and strengthening drills to make sure my joints and muscles didn’t stage a rebellion. I had to continue going to bed earlier than my husband would prefer me to. (You get what I’m saying…) I had to pay closer attention to the food I put in my piehole than I normally do.

And I had to take care of my feet…

Mother runners chilling post-run, discussing the next day's workout they just received via Training Peaks app on their phone.

Another Mother Runner Training Plans Now Online!

As we hurtle toward Thanksgiving and the gift-giving season beyond that, with a flurry of cranberries, stuffing, tinsel, candles, and ribbon flying all around us, we encourage you to lift your head–even if just briefly–to start planning your 2015 race calendar. Getting something set on your running calendar, like a race, gives you a goal to shoot for–something both to look forward to (maybe a girlfriend’s weekend away, or a fun roadtrip with the family) as well as a challenge to keep your motivation percolating in the cold, dark weeks ahead.

While we love a variety of race distances, we think a half-marathon is as close to perfect as it gets…
