Martini Fridays: Jerkface, the Fibroid, and Other Tales

Martini Fridays: Jerkface, the Fibroid, and Other Tales

Welcome to Friday, and this edition of Martini Fridays, where Adrienne Martini runs long and talks about Jerkface.

Apparently, I’m going to spend the entire summer—well, what’s left of it—re-arranging the training schedule. Week 4’s long run had to go on Thursday, not Saturday, which pushed Thursday’s NS: 5 miles (3,2) to Saturday, which, given how I’d re-arranged the rest of the week, made Friday a rest day. Confused? Yeah. Me, too. But I’ve been drawing circles and arrows all over my copy of the training plan so that I can keep track.

The long run was the first ten miler of this cycle…

Hump Day Giveaway: Two 6-month JustGoGirl Pad Subscriptions

 

One of our newest partners is JustGoGirl, which makes discreet pads to combat “athletic leakage,” a term the company founder fit-mama Brooke Solis, has wisely trademarked. We suspect you have as many questions about the company and product as we did, so we went straight to the source–mother of five Brooke Solis. 

AMR: JustGoGirl: What’s up with the name? Does the name imply, “Just go exercise already, woman!” or… “go ahead and pee your pants—we got this!” Or both—or neither?
Brooke: The name is a double entendre – just go get your workout done, whether it’s a run or a group fitness class, CrossFit, tennis, aerobics, dance or any other high-impact activity  you love and when you do, just go ahead and pee because we will have you covered…

Amy DeKorse, 39, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when her daughter Vivian, now 4, was a baby. But this New Haven, MI, half-marathon mother runner finds strength in running. “I try to be smart about it. I have physical therapy to ensure proper stretching and strengthening, as well as having all my doctors aware of my training intentions and how to keep me doing it.” 

Best recent run: I love running, but ”training” aspects can get me a little frustrated, though. For example, I don’t really lose myself in speed workouts or hill-climbing like a good ol’ long run. BUT, last week, while forcing myself to do 8x400s right in my own neighborhood, I realized after how great I felt! Counting down the segments, challenging myself to keep pace, and SURVIVING helped in creating a newfound respect for this part of training!

Powerful Athlete: For as long as I can remember, I’ve always admired the female athlete…

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Erin VanLaningham

The Most Important Mile of My Life: Erin VanLaningham

I handed the pine cone to my youngest son. He turned and grinned at me, face flushed. Then, his older brother ran past us to take the pine cone, picking up the pace. We were running the first Pine Cone Relay, a game we made up on our first family run.

Every summer we spend time at my parents’ cabin on a lake in Northern Wisconsin — swimming, kayaking, and having campfires. This summer was a bit different as I unlocked the door, quickly lighting the fire to cut through the cold front that had hit in July. I was fresh off a divorce and this was the first family vacation I was embarking on with the boys alone…
