First off, a huge MY BAD to those new readers leaving comments – I didn’t know that I had to initially approve your comment in order to let the blog just let your next comments show… Whoops.
What a day. Though my husband had staff duty today, Kara and I had pretty big plans. A good friend invited us to check out their church, and from there I planned to get a quick run in before heading to a running buddy’s Superbowl Party.
Then, life intervened, just like it aaaaalways does; when you least want it too. Kara’s been sniffly lately but developed a cough yesterday. So bad, that this morning she physically got sick from it. Yikes. I cancelled on church, wincing at the image of a vomit covered pew. Jesus would not approve.
New plans – Stay home. Get cuddles. Play it by ear. Make soup. Watch the Superbowl in pj’s.
Luckily, it was 55 and sunny out and the absence of puke led me to believe that fresh air would do everyone some good… So I laced up, and off we went.
I ROCKED my run for two miles to Husband’s work in record time (ahem, in pregnant lady record time) said hi, and hung out for a bit. Apparently I hung out too long, and about .55 after the turnaround I started getting cramps. From there, I was able to walk/run the rest of the third mile, and afer that I called the running quits and walked the rest of the way home.
Though I am kind of forced to do so, I feel like I am coming to terms with not being able to run how I want. BUT, If I can do 4 miles of anything for the rest of the pregnancy I will be beyond elated. Run/walk/”wogging” – whatever. Being temporarily derailed (and for a more than amazing cause!) is fine and it doesn’t change my passion for running.
Anyway, if you Need me I’ll be eating ice cream. 🙂 Hope y’all had a great weekend!!
Did you run this weekend?
When life gets in the way, do you err on the side of caution or go with the flow and see what happens?
Will you do my dishes?
