Running in motherhood
Running is a lifetime sport you can take into motherhood. You will need to change your mindset around pace, goals, and time for long efforts!
Having kids does not mean you’ll never see another personal record again- you’ll just need to train creatively for it by utilizing focused time management strategies.
Big Hairy Audacious Goals
“I broke it down into small, mentally manageable pieces” – Suzy Goodwin, on how to approach a 100 mile race
Suzy discussed breaking down each mile of her Guinness World Record race as well as a 100 mile ultra marathon into bite size pieces. This is advice you can use in any program, even as a beginner!
If you have a goal to tackle a 60 or 90 day program, break it down to months, weeks, and days as needed. Small wins create momentum!
Suzy provided tactical tips for running with a stroller (25:00) such as pre-planning routes, owning a flexible mindset and an acronym for head to toe good form:
- Wrists: relaxed, neutral with appropriate handlebar height.
- Abdomen: tight core
- Shoulders: down, relaxed. Away from your ears.
- Hips: aligned, be aware of pelvic tilt
