Ok. I am definitely having running withdrawawl since my shins and the growing baby made me say - enough is enough until the baby is born.
Example #1 - I get misty eyed thinking about all the awesome races my friends will be running...without me. :)
Exampe #2 - The night before last, I dreamt....about all the races I was going to run next year. In the dream - I was running the Pittsburgh Marathon relay with my running buddies....and I knew that I'd already run the Knoxville Half Marathon in April and Cap City in May....plus I had plans to run the Emerald City Half and the Columbus Full in the fall. HAHAHA! Gotta love dreams! Gives me something to aim for. So, um...is anyone interested in getting a relay together for Pittsburgh? LOL!
Example #3 - Today I insisted on starting cross-training cardio-wise since I can't run. After my one hour long strength training workout (double the length because he no-showed on Monday), I showered, put on my new maternity swimsuit and got into the pool to attempt swimming some laps.
Note to self - NEVER forget goggles when swimming at Urban Active. I switched to a truncated breaststroke and kickboard laps when I realize my eyes needed to not take in their water.
I cannot even begin to describe how incredibly HEAVY I felt getting back out of the pool and having to re-experience the pregnancy weight after a half-hour break. AND - I was so tired after 1.5 hours of exercise that making lunch afterwards seemed like a chore. But, it was worth it!
Anywhoodle - my computer is back with a new harddrive - so I should be able to keep up on all my fun internet stuff again - YAY!!!!
Until next time...
