|2.62 miles run at 26.2 weeks pregnant..|
The BONUS was running the 5K with Tall Sister. We were supposed to run the St. Paddys 5K together in March but I came down with a horrible cold. Today we chatted through the whole race and had a great time... I counted 5 dogs, 4 jogging strollers and a handful of tiny boys smaller than LS #1 passing us.. I was not worried about pace...this race was to be with my sister, get a workout and have fun. We Finished at 33:31 which is about 10:40 pace which we were both happy with!!
|Before the race, baby Q even made the photo..|
|After the race.. It rained a little and we were getting chilly..|
|Hoping I can get this shape back by next Fall.|
To follow with my Tall Baby growth journal I will be 27 weeks tomorrow.
Cravings: Waffles with whipped cream and berries, Ice Cream and tater tots....not great for weight gain. Really trying to keep my diet in check but the HUNGER is extreme. I eat a lot of fruits, veggies, nuts, grains, etc. to keep me satisfied.
Running: I ran 3 times this week and felt GREAT!! My support belt has been a great help and keeping the distance low makes for easier recovery. I am still around 10:15-10:45 pace, although I don't obsess if I need to walk.
Sleep: Overall sleep is good, I am cherishing it as I know what having a newborn can bring. I could do without the creepy and vivid dreams which are a result of interrupted sleep. The fatigue throughout the day is very draining wishing that corporate America would bring back the nap.
Purchases: Dresser, paint (pink and white), chair rail and supplies to transform her room, hot pink converse from a consignment store...and more..
Growth: The BUMP is fully sprouted. Hoped that I would be smaller this pregnancy but with the rapid growth I am doubtful. I went through my clothes and arranged so that I only have to look at items that fit me. I still have an inny belly button and have no swelling.
Baby Movements: This little lady likes to do her pilates!! She is very active after meals and at bedtime. Really cherishing this time...while a bit nervous how these movements will feel when she is bigger.
That is about all I have for now.. Wishing you all clear pavement and loads of energy!!
