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 match.com 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 Run/Walk For Injury Recovery

I'm rehabbing a hip/glute issue and trying to rebuild my mileage for the half marathons I have coming up this spring and summer. During my marathon last Oct. I walked at every aid station, which was roughly every 1-2 miles, and it worked great and helped me finish feeling good.

I've never used it for injury rehab, and would love to hear from anyone who has. Did it help make increasing the miles less painful and easier? Did you eventually go back to running without the breaks? My main goal is to make sure I don't end up where I am right now - dealing with issues that stem mostly from overuse.

I am currently doing run/walk after a groin injury. My half is in 4 weeks. I've been running for 5 minutes and then walking for 1 minute. It has made a world of difference. This probably won't be my fastest race but since it is my first half, I just wanna finish. Good luck!

I have hip issues if I don't use the run/walk method. I used to do mostly 5ks before signing on for my half in June, and that mileage was fine. Longer distances light my hips on fire. So yes, the run/walk method allows me to continue to run virtually pain free. I use a roller for any issues and now do yoga/pilates as my cross training.

I am trying to come back after being sick for 8 months and recently being diagnosed with asthma. I am having a really hard time dealing with not being where I was when I had to stop. I read Dimity's recap of her tri and seeing that she used run/walk for the run portion, I'm thinking this might be the way to go to build back up. But how do I find the interval that works for me. With my breathing issues, it might be that I run/walk from now on, so I'd like to get the intervals right so I can get faster and go farther. Any help? Also, how do you get over this feeling that run/walk is not "running"? My running frenemy is making me feel horrible with her backhanded comments about how slow I am now and how I have to walk. I'm just so frustrated by everything now and want to get back to feeling good about myself and finding joy in running again.
