drawing the line

this morning i was planning to head out at 6:30 to meet up with my running buddies who are scheduled to do 18 miles.  i had a rough night's sleep last night with the kids both up at different times and then one of them sleeping in my bed which meant that i was pushed all the way to the edge and just, well, no so comfortable. when my alarm went off at 5:15 and it was pouring rain and pitch black out and i was so tired and a bit nauseous...it had me thinking.  WHY am i doing this?  i wasn't planning to run 18 with them, maybe 10 or even less depending on how i was feeling.  last week i went out to run 10 with them and was so much slower than they were that it was a bit depressing for me.  so i called my sister and the plan now is to try to meet them on the trail around halfway through their run.  i had to draw the line somewhere for myself this morning - i mean i want to keep running and moving throughout my pregnancy but do i really need to push myself to do it in the dark on a weekend morning, and in a downpour?  not so much.

on another note i passed the 20 week mark the other day!  that means i'm over halfway through my pregnancy now!  hooray!  i am so excited about that...and i still have not been tempted to open the envelope.  i'm really feeling like keeping the gender a secret from all of us is adding a level of excitement and anticipation that is keeping me more positive and motivated right now.  so i'm hanging onto that feeling and will keep that envelope sealed (and out of sight, so we are not tempted!).

happy sunday, everyone :o)


you are awesome. don't forget that. I ran my entire 3rd pregnancy, but after 20 weeks it was three 3 milers and one 6-8 miler each week. Every step counts, but no need to push it now.

Yay - 20 weeks! That was when I had my last "real" run. Its kind of sad to think about, but I'm still trying to get out and move.
