Yes, you heard it here. The girl that ran through her pregnancy and didn’t lack in motivation woke up today and I didn’t feel like running. I got a through a crappy 8 mile run on the treadmill but the whole time was a drag. I couldn’t wait for it to be over and it felt like a pregnant run all over again. I wanted to stop and take walk breaks and had to reason with myself that it would take much longer if I did. I guess we have good days and bad, so hopefully some better days are ahead for me!
I don’t think it is the best idea to train for a marathon a few months after having a baby – just for anyone out there considering that idea! A 5k, 10k, even 10 miler would be perfect : )
I’m also over feeling like I’m still pregnant. I hate my stomach and I feel like I’m being a good eater and I still feel like I have a pregnant belly. I’m not dropping any weight, and I don’t feel like I’m over-eating. I may start keeping track to make sure I’m not, but I can’t cut calories much anyway since I need to feed my kiddo!
I took a little smoothie hiatus but they are back. Today was blueberries, flax, banana, spinach and protein powder + milk.
