A Bit of A Break

So it has been about two weeks since I last ran. I was really sick. It was a terrible cold followed by nauseau that would not go away. I couldn't move without thinking about getting sick, it was terrible. I had to go to the doctor, I just couldn't figure it out. Well, surprise!!! I'm pregnant again. It was totally unexpected so I never even thought of being pregnant when I was so nauseaus, but now it all makes sense.

I saw my OB yesterday and she ok'd running, she even encouraged it. I can't do the half marathon though. She doesn't want me to be training for any new distances, she just wants me to stick with what I already have done. So I will still do the 8k at the end of March, that I am excited about. I am still pretty sick, so I am not sure when I will head out on the road again. Maybe in a few days and I will probably start out with a short distance, just to see how I feel afterwards. I am grateful that I have an OB that doesn't mind that I run. I will keep you updated on how everything goes and whenever I get my next run in.

On Wednesday I get to go to my first ultrasound to see how far along I am. I can't wait to see that little dot on the screen. :)

Happy Running everyone!

Lazy, Excuse Maker, Whiner

Yep, that is all me. I didn't run at all this weekend. I was too lazy to run 8 miles. I didn't want to run 6 miles with the group because I knew no one would want to run as slow as me. I whined about running (in my head) all weekend. I used the excuse of how busy this weekend was also. I have to stop it! I am getting really bad.

I did hit the eliptical this morning. I really wish I had a treadmill at home. I also ran up and down the stairs 25 times (to help build my muscles for those hills) and I did some core work. I guess that is good right? I know its not enough to help me with the half marathon though. I have to run. I have to run. I have to run. (I keep repeating that to myself.) Ok, so I will stop whining out loud now. My next chance to run is Wednesday night. I will be talking myself in to it for the next two days.
