The ugly ones, too

Two successful 3 milers back to back on Tuesday and Wednesday, then on Thursday, this:

Screen Shot 2014-07-19 at 5.48.06 PMNothing was feeling right, from my bladder to my legs to the slight dizzy feeling I had right before turning around. I don’t need to be a pregnant running hero. I threw in the towel and took the dogs for a walk around the block.

Friday wasn’t much better, though I did feel like I needed a little redemption after my two block effort the day before. I made it for two miles, though they were slow – an average pace around 12:30/mile.

The funny thing is, I did a LOT of walking during that second mile, yet overall, my time wasn’t much slower than the first mile I “ran.” It makes me think that it might be time to employ the run/walk strategy. I also developed a pretty awful shin splint in my right leg, something that usually doesn’t happen.

Yesterday included a walk to/from lunch with Nancy and then a walk in downtown Hancock at night with Scott and the kids. By the end of the day, I was wiped, so I made today a rest day, even though I hate to waste weekend running time.

Tomorrow marks 22 weeks. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to still run at this point, and it’s getting a little dicey (I feel pretty good some days and lousy others), but I’m going to keep moving as long as I can, or keep waddling, as the case may be.

Amy, July 2013

I'm a thirty-something suburbanite turned ruralite living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wife, mom of two, eater of all things delicious, and a runner. This is where I blather on about running and health. Baby Number Three will be here in November (so yes, I'm a little crazy), and I'm running through my pregnancy for as long as my body's willing and able. There's also more of me at Read more here.
