Getting back into the exercise thing! Had to take 2013 off due to pregnancy...silly baby growing in my tummy!!

My goal this season is to do an Oly tri. I've done 5 tri's and all Sprint or shorter.

I "ran" a bit today. (I feel REALLY fast...but the woman with the walker may or may not have passed me on my "sprints". :-P)

I realized today that I was having 2 problems. 1) I was getting a serious wedgie and 2) I was tired of feeling my now stretched/loose stomach bounce. Anyone found anything (underwear or shorts) that help with this problem??

I also wanted to add that I found a bike skort that fit me! I am not a small girl (width wise) and am only 5'3"  Finding bike shorts is EXTREMELY difficult! A lot of my weight is in my thighs and I really like these. They have a v-shaped cut at the waist and both the waist band and leg bands are the thicker spandex band vs. the grippy band. (You can see what I'm talking about if you see the shorts, it's quite obvious!) I fit in the XXL my measurements are like 40ish waist, bigger around the hips (46ish??). (I don't like admitting it, but it might help with sizing)

(There website says they're down, but I found some things on clearance at swimoutlet)


We have a mentor group for new parents (myself and juniperjen). you should join. I also had to take 2013 off doing to growing a baby

ETA - I see your baby was due on August 7th. Our baby (jonathan) was born on August 8th, so they should be really close to the same age unless your baby was a premie.

Does compression clothing really work? Coach AJ was able to try out a line of compression wear by Skins during the 2008 Annual Hawaii Ironman Triathlon.

I couldn't believe that my splits kept getting lower! I started to run harder after I passed the "5 km" sign and picked a few people that I wanted to pass.

Many of us do not enjoy the ‘pleasures’ of training on a stationery trainer. “Boring”, ”mind-numbing”, “a drag” are three phrases often associated with indoor trainers.

I'm on the other side of the college-student desk. I'm the one with the red pen in my hand. Those of us with schedules that change from day to day actually have an advantage, I think.

I’m a C-L-Y-D-E-S-D-A-L-E! Many people in the sport know the division is there, but many of them think that it's a 'fat boys division.' So what constitutes a Clydesdale? Why even have this class?
