Re: Wetsuits for women who are not small lol...any suggestio

Yeah for the longest time I was the only maniac in sask. I know that's changed though. I live about an hour north of Saskatoon, in prince Albert. There's a large running/tri community here but no tri shops per say. Saskatoon is probably the closest. Might have to make a trip there for some shopping...

Re: Wetsuits for women who are not small lol...any suggestio

Hi Deb, I'm curvy too.. I agree with the Nineteen comments and my friend has an Xterra one that she loves. They guarantee sizing apparently. I have a Desoto two piece. They are a little pricy, but I was able to get a larger bottom and a smaller top. My complaint about women's wetsuits is that they a...

Re: Oh my aching body! Runners with physical jobs??

Can you run / bike in the morning before work? I don't have a physical job, but I find this helps just with being tired at the end of the day in general. I think this is what I am going to have to do, Jessie! I don't start until at least 9:45 and my daughter leaves for school at 8:15 so there is so...

Oh my aching body! Runners with physical jobs??

I used to work a nice desk job and would have pretty fresh legs when I got to doing my runs/bikes etc. I'm back at school now and I am working part time at the big Ikea so my job is much more physical than before and Holy Carp, I am having major troubles with my training.

Newtons in the Winter?

I'm on my third pair but didn't run in the winter with them when I lived in Regina- I was a wimp and ran at the track. Just making an assumption here, but they are pretty meshy and I would think that my feet would freeze in the winter. What do all you Newton wearers do in the winter? Thick socks? Sw...

Re: Motorola announces Motoactv, 'the ultimate fitness device'

The only advantage I can see over using an iPhone or Android phone is that it seems to be small. I agree re: Nike + - it was never very accurate.
