Just keep moving! Just keep moving!
That’s been my motto these days. On the days that I get up and get in an hour or so of walking/running in the morning, I feel so much better. No swelling (at least so far), better mood (as usual) and more energy overall. So, even on the days I’m tired and feeling too big to move, I’m trying to get out there.
This week included something besides running, which is not common — some brief kettlebells workouts AND a swim! It was 80+ degrees one morning, and being able to float in a pool was amazing. (See, it was “feels like 80” at 6 a.m…so it got much hotter)
Here’s what this week looked like from a running/walking standpoint:
Sunday: 3.7 miles
Monday: 3.45 miles + 25 min swim
Tuesday: 5.03 miles
Wednesday: 5.12 miles
Thursday: 3.8 miles
Friday: 5.5 miles
Saturday: 4.13 miles
Total: 30.73 mi
Weeks Pregnant: 38

Some questions for you
- We have been seeing tons of deer lately! Any near you?
- What’s too hot for you to run?

swimming is great to do while pregnant and perfect for summer too. You are almost at the finish line!
It’s been fun following along your running streak! Wow, 38 weeks, huh? Almost there.
I have only seen a few random deer, one while riding a few weeks ago. You’re doing well!! It’s almost go time!!
You’re so close now! And look at that weekly mileage for someone who is 38 weeks pregnant – that’s brilliant!
You’re still hanging in there!
I did actually see two deer in the back of my neighborhood last week. It’s not a regular thing, and I was so happy about it (yay, animals!).
Since we are in Florida, I don’t know if I can answer that question. Right now, I run every day in the conditions that experts tell you NOT to run in. We are acclimated to it, though, so it’s not as bad for us.
