Ask A Marathon Mommy: Eating on the Run

Check out this tips for marathon! Eating on the Run It’s been 8 days since my 26 mile training run, and I feel like I am just about fully recovered. The first 48 hours after the run were difficult. I was stiff, achy, dehydrated, and exhausted. I attempted my first run on Wednesday, and it didn’t go as well as I’d hoped. I ran two miles at a very easy, slow pace, and I still had a good bit of pain in my right knee. So I decided to give my body a bit more time to rest and recover. I am afraid … [Read more...]

Ask A Marathon Mommy: You Are What You Eat

marathon

Hi, friends! I'm sorry for my absence from this column. Truth be told, I've been lacking a bit of motivation. My energy level has been poor, and for the past few weeks, I've been crashing by mid-afternoon. During my run last week, I mentioned this to one of my running pals, Myra, who happens to be a nurse. She asked some questions about my diet, and I sheepishly admitted to my very poor eating habits, including: coffee with loads of cream and sugar for breakfast; routinely skipping meals; and a … [Read more...]

Ask A Marathon Mommy: Brrrr…

marathon

Brrrr... To Floridians like myself, anything below 65 degrees is considered chilly weather. So you can imagine my dismay when I woke up yesterday morning for my run, checked the weather, and saw that it was 31 degrees outside! I've done some running in chilly temperatures, but this was my first run in truly cold weather. I did the best I could to bundle up, but I definitely need to do a bit of preparation for my next cold run - especially if the weather is going to be similar for next … [Read more...]

Ask A Marathon Mommy: What’s In Your Bag, Mommy?

marathon

First, an update. When we spoke last, I'd suffered an injury during a half marathon. Luckily, it turned out to be nothing more serious than some bruising. It took a good week for it to heal and put me a bit off track with my training schedule, but I was still in pretty good shape for yesterday's 20 mile trail run. Which brings me to today's topic. Prior to each group run, the Galloway program directors and group leaders send emails to participants. The emails contain directions to our meeting … [Read more...]

Ask A Marathon Mommy: Setback

marathon

On Thanksgiving morning, I ran my second half marathon. I ran it about a minute slower than my first 13.1 in October, but it was a much more pleasant run. The course was easier, the weather was cooler, and (most importantly) I was more prepared, training-wise. Overall, I felt great during and after the race. However, around mile five, I felt a sharp, painful cramp in my left foot. The acute pain passed quickly, but my foot ached for the rest of the race. I had a similar, dull pain in my right … [Read more...]
