  Quote of the Week  
Cross-Training - "If your primary purpose is to improve your running performance, cross-training does not help you much," says Hirofumi Tanaka, Ph.D, an exercise scientist at the Univeristy of Texas at Austin and author of a review of published studies on cross-training. "There is n important principle in exercise trainng called the 'specificity of training'---that is, exercise you perform in practices needs to be as close as possible to the actual competition." ~ From the May issue of Running Times.

Go Ahead, Stop & Pee: Running During Pregnancy and Postpartum Go Ahead, Stop & Pee: Running During Pregnancy and Postpartum
By Mihevc Edwards, Kate (Author), Blair Green (Author)
Slow down. Stop running. Pregnant and postpartum women have heard this advice since the beginning of time. Many runners have no idea what they can and cannot do during pregnancy and postpartum, leaving them unsure, scared, and susceptible to injury. This book throws out all those old wives’ tales and proves that women can keep running—during and after pregnancy. All they need is the right information.
Written by two moms and physical therapists who also have a passion for running, Go Ahead, Stop and Pee is a fresh voice that empowers women to maintain their running lifestyle during pregnancy and postpartum. Combining first-hand experiences as well as science, this book:
  • Dispels some common myths about running pregnant and postpartum
  • Presents key exercises for pregnant runners
  • Helps women understand and care for their postpartum bodies
  • Offers tips on maintaining a running lifestyle after the baby

For any soon-to-be or new mom who doesn’t want to "slow down", Go Ahead, Stop and Pee is the catalyst that will inspire her to keep going.
