I have been super busy with work (which is a blessing for someone self-employed) so I really, really needed to get out for some mileage at the end of the day yesterday. I was stressed about a newly-discovered problem (which I have since solved). I have just about decided to do "mileage" every other day, and in between I'll "saunter" a bit to prevent swelling in my preggo feet. It works! I am chained to my desk, and that is not good for my feet. So I need all the movement I can get.
Chasen went out with me. I was all would up and walking very, very fast (like sub 15). I hurt everywhere from the knees down, as is my current pattern. I slowed by about a half mile into it, and Chasen went ahead a ran a bit. By the time I made it to the one mile mark I was just spent. Phew! So we very slowly made it home.
On Tuesday I had an appointment with my obstetrician. All is well. Next time I go in (on my birthday, no less) I have to drink some probably-nasty stuff an hour ahead of time so they can then test my sugar levels. Happy Birthday to me.
Here I am today in my new "uniform": maternity clothes and running shoes.
I have targeted a potential 5K for 3 weeks from now. It's another night race that I'll do with Lisa. I love a plan!
