It has been a really long time since I just chatted with you. I know I’ve been updating you weekly on my pregnancy journey and I love doing that, but I used to just ramble about a whole lot of nothing (well a lot about my running and eating), and so today I’m here to do that.
|Yup, that’s water from Starbucks. I’ll get back to those lattes soon enough.|
So how are you?!
Sometimes I can’t believe it’s already May of 2014. I know that sounds strange, but truly the time just flies. It’s been a year since I started training for that marathon and wow what a blast I had. I’ll always remember that 20 mile run that just felt effortless. I am really looking forward to getting back into running this fall. As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve taken a break from running right now. It wasn’t necessarily planned, but between pregnancy and the longest winter ever, running just didn’t happen.
I don’t think 26 weeks pregnant is really the best time to begin running again (ha!) so I think sticking to power walks it will be. But baby boy and his jogger stroller better get ready for fall because I will be back out there. I still have goals of another marathon (and maybe even an ultra). I just plan on taking it as it comes… I have no idea where I stand with that IT band injury from late last summer. I went to PT and did my exercises and then I just sort of forgot about it. Or maybe there were just too many other things going on in life that it no longer was my focus. I’ve definitely taken a solid break from running though so I’m hoping it’s been healing.
Are you training for any races right now?
Baby boy is due in 3 months! It’s pretty impossible to imagine what life will be like when he arrives. And that’s the beauty of it. I’m just enjoying this time preparing for his arrival. I’m beyond excited, happy, anxious, and nervous all mixed into a big bundle of love. I guess every new parent probably feels that way. I know I can only prepare so much and then I’ll learn as I go. One thing I know for sure though is baby boy will be so loved.
I’m starting to think about labor. I’ve read many other bloggers child birth stories. I really have appreciated how other first-time mom’s have documented it. It’s very comforting to read. So when I say preparing, that’s what I mean. Thank you for sharing your pregnancy journeys! But child birth classes do start in another month, so I’m hoping to get a bit more comfortable with the process during the classes.
Are you a first-time momma-to-be? How’s your pregnancy going?
The last year has been filled with ups and downs, amazing days, and tougher ones. I’ve learned a lot and I’ve grown a lot too. I think one of the best things about blogging is the fact that it documents life. It’s so easy to forget moments in time and I really appreciate having this space to do it. So thanks for being a part of that!
What are you up to this weekend?
