Coach Carl will help you make sense of track--and this podcast might even inspire you to run some laps.

#105: Demystifying the Track

With spring racing season upon us, the mother runners decided it was time to banish any intimidation you might be feeling about track workouts. Dimity and Sarah welcome Carl Leivers, a certified USA Track and Field certified running coach in Atlanta, to help make track workouts less daunting and more “enjoyable” (that being a relative term…). He deciphers all those numbers—e.g., 10 x 400, 6 x 800, 4 x 1000—as well as helps the gals figure out what all the lines mean. He gives pacing tips, including a pointer that’s especially welcome to Sarah. Plus, find out what Dimity’s going to yell at SBS the next time she catches up with her at an airport…

Winners of the Trigger Point Cold Rollers—and a 20% Discount for All!

Winners of the Trigger Point Cold Rollers—and a 20% Discount for All!

It’s fitting that we’re rolling through the South as I put up the winners of the Trigger Point Cold Rollers: Sarah and I have put in a bunch of miles, and it’s heating up around here. The weather for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Raleigh Half- and Full Marathon is going to top out at 79 degrees, which feels downright tropical to us.

Without further ado, the two mother runners who will soon be releasing their muscles in Arctic fashion—and their body parts that need some TLC are:

Sibyl: I would love to have a Cold Roller for my IT bands and also my calves. Can it be used for achilles? (Yes, Sibyl, it definitely can!)

Nicki: This would be amazing on my hips for prehab or my foot for rehab…

Martini Fridays: Of Old Shoes + Tutus

Martini Fridays: Of Old Shoes + Tutus

Race day for Adrienne Martini at the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon is getting closer, and on this episode of Martini Fridays, Adrienne starts thinking about gear.

Sometimes, I’m a little jealous of SBS and her best running friend Molly. While I do have lots of running friends (and, just for the record, lots of non-running friends), there aren’t any that I run with on a regular basis. Part of me wishes I had this kind of closeness with my own Molly. But most of me knows that running solo is one of my most favorite things ever and I don’t really want to give that up.

Which isn’t to say that I haven’t enjoyed the times I’ve run with other people…

Hump Day Giveaway: Thule Chariot Cougar 2 (x 2!)

Hump Day Giveaway: Thule Chariot Cougar 2 (x 2!)

Spilling some beans on a workout secret here—and hoping I’m not alone. Near the end of a sweat session, when I’m really not interested in running 1 more mile or pedaling for 20 more minutes, I’ll turn on the Justin Roberts Pandora station.

In case you’re not on top of all the best singers ever, Justin Roberts sings songs for kids. The under-six set, mostly, but they’re also appealing to this almost-42-year-old. With titles like Meltdown! and lyrics that involve juice boxes, they’re witty and peppy, and they’re usually short; getting through just.one.more.song means about two minutes, not a Stairway to Heaven seven-minute-riff…
