    Hey Marnster, that'll be a great time to work on the off the bike teaching and motivational skills.

    They'll lap it up!

    I did this the other day with my class (not that I'm pregnant) but wanted to make sure they were prepping for their race day. As they were riding I was telling them what the rules would be for race day - I'm actually setting them up in teams and will declare a winner - they'll get prizes (but they don't know that bit). It's amazing how much their form changed as I weaved in and out the bikes, being positive when they made a good change. I don't do it too often as they like to have me riding but the time was right.
    Cycle Happy!

    Great advice, Euro. I'm sure this will help me to grow as an instructor (by learning off the bike coaching and honing my motivational cuing/skills) and give me personal experience when working with pregnant women in my classes, now and in the future! It's the uncertainty of it all that is scary, ya know?

    If you had to jump from a moving vehicle, how would you dress for the jump? Would your clothing reflect the weather that day, or the worst-case scenario? Even at a modest 30 mph it is still likely to hurt, even with the gear. But imagine how bad it'd hurt if you were wearing your swimsuit (or what might as well be equivalent).

    It's wearing a jacket, long pants, gloves, over the ankle shoes, and a full face helmet as opposed to a tank top, shorts, sketchers, bare hands and a bucket on your head.
    Pay attention as you drive as to how many MC riders dress for the slide or dress for the ride. Around here it's like one out of every ten I see every day. Astounding.

It is suggested to take your temp with a rectal thermometer during a long run (or other exercise) to make sure it doesn't go higher than 101F. Hmmmm, I wonder how my class would feel about me doing this midway through the ride. Of course, I could always squat behind the stereo cabinet. JFK, I would just be curious about your thoughts on the 101 degree rule? Of course I am going to check with my doc.

    YAHOO, Marnster! Congratualations and best wishes!!!!

    Congratulations on your pregnancy! I can lend you a flexible rectal probe from the lab...you can have your core temp real-time.

    I would recommend Dr. Clapp's book on exercising through pregnancy. I don't know any specific temps for pregnancy, though I do know that a concern for pregnancy is that the fetus cannot dissipate excess heat terribly effectively, so you don't want to get too hot. But as long as you are dissipating heat well (make sure you are exercising in a temperate environment and that you are well hydrated) you should both be fine. Good luck and may you have a healthy and uneventful pregnancy!

    Normally this quote would bring forth a series of wise ass remarks, however, next week I'm having a colonoscopy so I probably will just let this one go by.

    But...the prospect of a flexible loaner rectal probe is an untapped vein of comedy.

    Do you need a deposit? Do you accept Asstercard?
    If the probe is flexible, does that mean it's not going with anyone steady?

    You see...stuff like this...but I will not go there.

    Do I dare ask what I was doing? Did I look like George Clooney? (Oh wait, I already do. )

    I will! What line of work did you say you're in again, JFK? Something to do with indoor recreation and sweating?

    1. Riding a bike (indoor)
    2. No

    Funny thing was, in my dream you said your real name isn't really Lynn, it is Bruce , you just use Lynn on the forum to mess with us.
    Anyone here a psychologist, and wanna take a shot at interpreting that one?

    In my dreams, I dream about real women with artificial body parts. It's a yin-yang thing. If I touch something fake in a dream, does that disrupt the flow of fung-shui in my dojo? Or is it art imitating life?

    So many questions to ponder before I take an Ambien.
