Buzz buzz – 5:40am – I’m tired but know I have to push through. When am I not tired these days?
Goal for the day, 10 miles. Within minutes my hopes are dashed by a burning sensation in my thighs. End result – 2 miles running, another 30 minutes walking.
I ran once last week – it was the best treadmill run I’ve had as of lately. I tried it again the next day and felt the burn: I walked. I stretched, did yoga, foam rolled, and used the stick, all in hopes of making this *burning* go away. It hasn’t. One can only hope that it’s just a passing phase, another one of the not-so-lovely things that can happen to your body when you are making a human.
I’m a survivor. I don’t go down without a fight. I heard my moms voice in my head when I was frustrated and walking on Saturday “we will fix this sweetie, we will fix it” I immediately came home and researched pool running. I’ve never pool run before but know a couple of awesome ladies who have!!
Cheryl of Dash Bites did a whole posting for me. She said it better than I could have so I’m just linking the post. If you are interested in pool running, whether you are pregnant or not, check out her blog.
While at the pool yesterday I tested out my maternity bathing suit to see if it would *stay in place* for laps. It did. Here’s my confession. I can’t swim. I was out of breath after one lap one. Thoughts run through my head…..could I ever learn to swim? I mean sure I can get to one end from the other, but could I really learn how to breathe properly and be efficient enough at this to not stop at every lap? I’m thinking I need a book – something to teach me what I’m doing wrong. Any suggestions?
