In order to run faster, you have to run faster. You have to do speed work. Several ways to do it, but generally it is intervals. Jog a warm up, then sprint, recover jog, sprint, recover jog. Then on another day try doing two miles at 10 minute pace, then one at 11. Then 1.5 at 9 min pace and 1.5 at 10.5 or 11. [ Reply | More ]

Np: I would even do shorter distances at faster pace. Maybe once a week, do a "speed work" day. Run a quarter mile at your fastest pace, can you manage an 8:30 Pace for a quarter mile? That's a little over 2 minutes. Do this four times with breaks in between. Then make the time longer and longer with time in between shorter, eventually making a full mile at 8:30 (as an example). You need to train your muscles to run fast. [ Reply | More ]

i am 37 and worked until dc#2 was born. i had every intention of going back, but, as i mentioned above, it just felt too crazy. it was during a time when dh was killing himself at work (as he needed to) so all kid/house stuff was in my court. i wasn't sleeping well at all bc #2 was always ravenous, never let me go more than 2 hrs without feeding and i was such a mess that i didn't have the wherewithal to set boundaries/train her, thought it was just easier and i'd get more sleep if i fed her (even co-slept w her which in hindsight was a mistake). dh needed to sleep and i was afraid of 2yo waking up so much, so i never let her CIO. anyway, couldn't manage to get work back into the picture bc it felt like any spare time i had, i wanted for myself -- quiet time, haircut, lunch w a friend, etc -- and i felt like adding work to the picture would basically equate to me shooting myself in the foot (we didn't need it financially). then dh lost his job in finance and took 6 months to get a new one, which entailed a move.... it was just one thing after another in those 4 yrs before we (accidentally) conceived #3. but now we're settled, life is stable, dh has a great job w a lot more free time/flexibility so i fully plan to work by 2015. albeit, flex hours (plan to start my own business) [ Reply | More ]

Do you want to tell her you are having a friend over before she goes to bed? That way she isn't scared if she wakes up and hears voices. [ Reply | More ]

I did it often when my kids were very little. Just started dating someone new and kids are 7 and 9 now, so am not sure I would until I am ready for them to meet him way down the road. [ Reply | More ]

OP: thanks everyone. my daughter would be asleep by the time I get home (nanny puts her to bed during camp summer schedule) so I wouldn't need to make introductions. She's not meeting him. I feel like a teenager hiding a boy! It's just hard having a normal dating life being a completely single mom (dad not involved) and throw in a single dad, makes it even harder! [ Reply | More ]

OP: yes. I'm too young to not date. I want another child one day too. I don't have a problem with dating and finding someone to settle down with. It's just the logistics that make things difficult. [ Reply | More ]

OP: I know, but would never do anything to the detriment of my daughter. Right or wrong, she comes first. [ Reply | More ]
