Last Tuesday was the first Tuesday I skipped a running update in a loooooong time. Why? Because, well, to be honest, I’m not really running these days.
It hurts me to type it and makes me sad, but at 34 weeks pregnant, I need to take it a little easier than I have been.
I also hate that I clearly recall last pregnancy being able to run and at a decent pace at this time last time around. I hate comparing myself to others – and even more, hate comparing myself to myself. The last time I ran (and by ran – in full disclosure, it was a run/walk), it hurt. Not just during the run, but for several hours after I was sore.
So, my spring race training update? It’s TBD. I still have plans to participate in the Cleveland Marathon to some degree, right now the 5k/10k challenge series (the 5k is Saturday and 10k is Sunday) is on my bucket list. I would like to walk both of the events, even though they’re within a few days of my due date. So fingers crossed – I make it to the date and get to participate again!
And if you’re thinking of running any of the events that weekend, use the code MCCLE10 – you’ll get 10% off your entry fee.
AND good news – as a race ambassador I’ll get an entry to give away! So stay tuned for an upcoming post where I’ll have a giveaway for you.
Some questions for you:
- How is your spring running?
- Mommas and mommas-to-be – how did you stay active while pregnant?
