@iRun2004:  Oh thanks! I’m looking forward to this thread and getting some running buddies too!

Here’s my info: 

TTC:  Well, just got a BFP last week, but was on Cycle #3 (and NTNT since August)

Running/Exercise Related:I’ve done 3 10milers and a few 5ks.  I ususally run about 4-5 miles 3-4 times a week depending on my work schedule (and the weather!)  I’m by no means super speedy, but usually average about a 10-11 minute/mile.  Wish I could get that down though.

Goals:  To maintain a healthy exercise routine during this pregnancy and to eventually be able to increase my speed. 

I am thinking about getting a heart rate monitor, does anyone have any particular brand they like? I’ve researched them awhile ago, but couldn’t decide.

@Kalamaz17: Congrats on your BFP!  Eeee!!

About Me:

TTC: Not yet, but next year!  Inspire me, TTC runners!  🙂

Running/Exercise Related: I’ve done 2 marathons and 4 half marathons, with many 5Ks and shorter distances thrown in.  I’m currently tapering in preparation for a marathon on June 23.  Woohoo!  DH is actually going to slow down to run it with me.  I’d be thrilled to run it in 4:30.  I also do hot yoga, aiming to do it 2x a week.

Goals: I’d love to run 3 more marathons before TTC, including the upcoming one.  I’d also love to run or run/walk a half while pregnant.  Right now I’m enjoying time with Darling Husband and trying to get in the best physical shape possible!  I figure if I’m crazy active now, I’ll hopefully be able to stay active on at least some level through a pregnancy.

We’re not TTC until next spring but I’d really like to start running. Can I join?

About Me:

TTC: Not TTC until February/March. Only 8/9 months left– I can’t wait!

Running/Exercise Related: I started running back in college. I finally got up to 5k but then stopped abruptly and now I’m back down to zero. I started jogging/walking again last week and I’m trying to train for a 5k that’s in August. I really loved the feeling I got from running and I was also much healthier and would like to get back to that!

Goals: 5k in August! I’d like to run a couple of 5ks and then maybe try for a 10k at some point.

@iRun2004:  I had Darling Husband look for some 5ks in our area and he found one. I forgot what it’s called but I can look it up and update. I did C25k last time so I figured I’d do it again; though, if you have any better suggestions I’m totally open to them!

Ooh fun, I’ll join!

About Me: 

TTC: We’ve been TTC for almost 18 months now, and are taking a bit of a break from the charting/temping/OPKing, etc.

Running/Exercise Related: I’m brand new to running, so I’m working on the Couch to 5K program. I finish Week 2 tomorrow morning. I took a break from the gym for a few months (cost a fortune in my small town), but I’m signing back up on Monday. My plan is to run 3 days and do spin, yoga and pilates the other days.

Goals: To complete the Couch to 5K program, be able to run 5k at a decent pace and continue to run for exercise, and to drop some serious pounds before continuing on our TTC journey.

@iRun2004:  I can do a mile! Thanks for the link! And I’m sorry to hear about your injury. I’m sure you’ll get back to your 9 minute mile– can I just say, WOW!– soon 🙂 I’m a big believer in the buddy system too!

 

@redsmarties:  Hi! I’ve done C25K before, it really was helpful when I did it. 🙂

About me:

TTC: not yet- FH and I live apart during the week due to my job/him finishing his education.  I am trying to figure out the ideal time.

Running: I started running 9/2010 with couch to 5k.  Last year I ran a 5k and a 5 mile race.  I ran a 5k this past weekend. I run 10-11 minute miles. In the first 5k, my first race, I was passed by a woman who was 8 months pregnant, who finished in under 30 minutes.  I want to be able to do that when I am pregnant.

Goals: I am doing my first 10k in September.  I am trying to figure out my goal for it- I want to run the whole thing, and trying to decide if I should have a time goal.
