I lost a whole post. Boo hoo. I will try this again.
Running has actually gotten easier over the past couple of weeks. I feel like my uterus finally took a flying leap off my bladder. The pressure is much less noticeable now. I also am slightly less of a piss machine.
Last week I reached 50 miles again. Runs averaged out to about 10 a day. This week I have done 10, 10, 2.25 +kettlebells, and 8.75 today. My hips were sore from the kettlebells and it was raining, so I cut my run a little short today. Usually I like running in the rain, but today, it was just irritating. I did most of the run on the treadmill while watching Celebrity Wife Swap. I actually sort of knew who the two celebrities were this week.
I have a race this weekend. A 5k. It should be cool, so if I am feeling good, I can probably average under 7:30/mile. If I am feeling heavy or have to suddenly pee or #2, then who knows what could happen. I still haven’t found my support belt, and I am still too cheap to buy a new one, for now. Luckily, I don’t feel like I need it yet. I will try to start out strong, get into a groove for mile 2, then push myself harder mile 3.
I sometimes think my bump is huge and noticeable and other times, it’s still pretty easy to conceal. I have been comparing it to pics from bloggers and I do seem a bit on the smaller side.
June and July are always crazy busy at work. I hate to wish the months away, especially with Red getting so big and sassy, but I can’t wait for August. Hopefully the weather stays mild. It’s been in the 70s and should continue for the next 10 days or so. I just wish I had some time off of work to go to the zoo with Red or take a day trip. I can’t take time until August and by then it will probably be a soupy swamp outside.
Next ultrasound is in 12 days. Hoping the baby’s kidneys are looking normal by then.
