Format: Paperback
I loved the first book by Sarah and Dimity - How To Train Like A Mother - and was not dissapointed at all by their sequel. The first book got me motivated to get off the couch and start running and this one helped me make goals to take my running to another level. Sarah and Dimity are hilarious and I honestly feel like I know them personally just by reading the book. The Training Plans are doable and enjoyable with the option to take it up a notch if you want. They are full of extra information and even advice on which run to skip if you need to. I used the Half Marathon Plan and have found it to be easy to stick to while challenging both my mental and physical fitness. I love that these ladies often involve the following of women who support them - the tribe - in the survey questions that are dotted throughout the book. It brings a personal feel to all us Mom's who want something else in common besides our kids. I would recommend this book (and How to Train Like A Mother) to new runners and experienced runners. Hoping there is another book in the future for these ladies!

I love this book, and is predecessor Run Like a Mother. Both books give women the motivation and tools to start (or continue) running while managing the rest of their busy lives. Train Like a Mother contains 2 training plans for each common race distance (5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon), one plan is for beginners to that distance and the other is for more experienced runners who want to improve. No matter where you are in your running you will find something in this book that is just right for you.

If you have been a runner or becoming a new runner or you are a veteran runner that has become a mother, this is a MUST read!!!!!The anecdotes of being a mother runner are hilarious and that one relates to. I was having a hard time re-starting my running after having my first child, but with this book it gave me motivation to get up and do it! It is an easy and fun read with plenty of valid information and guidelines to help you get started for the first time, get re-started or motivate to continue.

Much like their other two books, this is an awesome, informative, down to earth and often hilarious read. I am following one of the training plans for the first time, and I am finding the plan manageable but challenging. I would recommend this book to any of my friends (mothers or not) who are balancing their desire to run with all the other every day challenges life throws at you!

It was exactly what I anticipated. Chatty while passing on wisdom. Information was easy to envision, so hopefully more easily retained.
