Train Like a Mother: How to Get Across Any Finish Line-And Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the publication of their first book, Run Like a Mother, the authors have built up an engaged, vibrant tribe of women runners — more than 10,000 fans on Facebook and an average of 2,500 daily visitors to — who are clamoring for another book. At its core, Train Like a Mother will comprehensively cover how to train for a race, including training plans for four race distances (5K, 10K, half-marathon, and marathon) for both beginner and more experienced runners; the importance of recovery; pre- and post-race nutrition; strength training; injury prevention (and rehab); and everything busy women need to know to add racing to their multitasking schedules. It is all presented with the same wit, empathy, and tone the avid fans connect and identify with.

The book is divided into 13.1 chapters — the distance of a half-marathon, the sweet spot for many mother runners — narrated by both Sarah and Dimity. Like the first book, Train Like a Mother chapters have plenty of sidebars, including Practical Motherly Advice (helpful information about training- and race-related advice), Take It from a Mother (advice and answers from the growing tribe of running moms), and Racy Talk (entertaining, race-related stories from the authors and other moms). The .1 sections are entertaining "commercial breaks" celebrating the sport of running and the added thrill of racing.
