30 weeks hit yesterday. Officially in the 30s now, hopefully the baby will be coming in the 30s too! Monday marks 7 months. 2 more months sounds so close, but yet… so far!
I’m starting to feel like I don’t even feel like giving the effort to run anymore. Maybe I’m in a funk but it is just not that enjoyable anymore. It takes so long just to finish a mile on a normal day, and getting in more than 4 or 5 miles seems almost miraculous. I bought a second pair of shoes to alternate and maybe motivate me – going back to my waverider 11 (mizuno). The Asics are working well but I didn’t want them to suffer an early death.
I have some questions for the mamas out there:
- When did you stop “running” when you were pregnant (“running” to me right now means jogging, partially running, anything where you aren’t WALKING but obviously it is a slow paced thing going on)
- Do you have both a baby jogger AND a regular stroller? I’m not sure if I need both. I know I need the jogger. Hah.
I swam yesterday and it was crowded so I had to swim with other people. It kind of sucked bc I had to stop and do the set and wait for people. Blah. I take little rest usually bc my time is limited in the pool, so I didn’t get in as much as I could have. But it felt good. Also swam today. Whenever someone was next to me in the lane, I felt like they were racing me! So I definitely piped up and went faster and thought I was moving along! When I later saw the speed of the people I was racing and pretty much keeping up with, I had to laugh. The pool that I went to today was my parents’ Y, and it is the only pool that is shallow enough (at least half way across) to do water running. Unfortunately I’m not a member so I had to pay to be a guest today (last week was free).
On to some christmas decorating and baking!
Congratulations Clare!! Can I ask to have my “membranes stripped” like the beginning of Feb? Seemed to do the trick! And GOOD LUCK D10!!
