And now for a commercial break.
I would like to take moment and plug a couple of books that have me in a tizzy because they finally launched this week.
Hungry Runner Girl and NYC RunningMama) Therefore, I see reading Train like a Mother: How to Get Across Any Finish Line-and Not Lose Your Family, Job, Or Sanity by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea, and their first book, RunLike a Mother: How to Get Moving –and Not Lost Your Family, Job or Sanity, as good preparation for the future.
Plus, the authors have strong and hilarious voices. RLAM was a great read and had some really great suggestions--gear, nutrition, etc. that actually applied to my non-mother life--so I’m looking forward to TLAM which launched on Tuesday.
And I’m all about collecting different training plans and trying out different approaches to races.
The Runner’s Guide to Yoga: A Practical Approach to Building Strength and Flexibility for Better Running, by Sage Rountree. I’ve talked about Sage here, and I cannot wait to get my hands on her new book. I have had The Athlete’s Guide to Yoga in my arsenal for a couple of years and cannot say enough good things about her yoga approach. She is a runner and endurance athlete herself, not to mention a registered yoga teacher, so by combining the two, she really knows exactly what muscle groups and sore areas to hit.
I’ll hopefully be posting full reviews soon.
And now, back to your regular scheduled posting.
