It was another cold and snowy week here in CLE, which meant I decided to stay inside for most of the week and stay on the treadmill and stick to running/walking on Monday through Friday. I’m so so slow these days and my runs are pretty much walking with a few minutes of running, but I’m still happy to be able to start my days like this at nearly 31 weeks pregnant.
Here’s a look at one of my runs from last week-
See? So slow and slower than I’ve ever been! I know I should feel grateful to still be running – and I do – but I am starting to feel discouraged about my involvement in the Cleveland Marathon. It’s less than 10 weeks away, and I’m supposed to be doing the 5k/10k. At this rate, I won’t be finished with the race until the next day!

- How slow is a “run”? I’m not really sure I can consider these runs anymore!

Maybe just put your Garmin away for now if you’re feeling pressure/anxiety over pace. It is amazing you are still moving the way you are so own it and just have fun.
Hey at least you are still doing it! After completing a marathon two days ago I really want to go for a short run/walk but I know I will be extremely slow. So I may hold off another day or two. Plus it’s rainy here so that helps to take some more recovery.
Never, ever feel bad about your pace. Always remember forward is a pace and no matter how long it takes you to finish the 5k/10k – finishing is winning!
I’m also am ambassador for the Cleveland race and hope to meet you on race weekend!
You’re still moving and that is incredibly inspiring!
You are doing so awesome considering you are 31 weeks pregnant! Just keep going at your pace/speed and enjoy the fresh air and movement. Besides – I once read that when Paula Radcliffe was pregnant, she was running up to 11mm!
