Things Change

If you hadn't noticed, I have not been around much lately. My plans for the half marathon have been trumped by pregnancy. I am already feeling weak and sick. I tried to run this week. It was sad. I could only run a quarter mile. Then I tried to walk. I could barely do it. Then I felt really weak and light headed. Needless to say, I won't be running for a bit. I plan to continue walking, as long as I am able to stand. It is difficult right now. I have gotten very sick with my other pregnancies. I will have the baby with a few weeks to recover and then I can start training for the half marathon in 2010! And there won't be any risk for pregnancy during that training! So, I might not be posting much for a while, but I will continue to write about my walking, and maybe a little jogging when I am over the morning sickness phase. And I will pick up when we start training in December!

Training: Day 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112

Monday: Walked 1.3 miles.
Tuesday: Walked 1.3 miles.
Wednesday: Nothing.
Thursday: Nothing.
Friday: Nothing.
Saturday: I strolled around at Oakway Center. We even crossed the street to go check out shoes at DSW! Does that count? Probably not.
Sunday: Rest day.

The good news is that we got a treadmill. I will start using it tomorrow. I know that sounds like I am putting it off, but I don't run on Sunday. It's just a thing I have.
I am excited to have it because it seems that between schedules and finding someone to watch the kids, running gets put on the back burner. Now there will be no excuses. It is here, I won't get rained on, and I can use it when the kids are home! Yay! I am so excited to get back in the swing of things!
