A little late with this weekly post. I am 34weeks 3 days “up the spout.” Still mostly running inside on the treadmill. Still have stomach issues in the mornings while running. I did manage a 10 miler on Monday by running 2.5 inside, potty break, 3.5 outside, potty break, then 4 more inside on the treadmill. I think that will be my last 10 miler. I have planned 9 mile long runs for the next couple weeks and then 8 after that. We will see what happens though.
My big goal for this week is to get my monthly miles total to match last month’s. July was 186.5. If I finish out the week with 1 mile today, (couldn’t get myself up early enough to do it this a.m.), 7 tomorrow, 7 Friday, 6.5 Saturday and then 2.5 on Sunday, I should match that total. Then I’m going into taper mode for the last 4 weeks. Here is the plan:
First week of Sept.
Goal: 37 miles- 9,8,7,7,6
35 miles- 9,8,6,6,6
33 miles- 8,8,6,6,5
30 miles- 8,8,6,5,3
Birth week! Sun.- 5, Mon.- 8? Tue- C-section @ 7a.m.(can I run before this? haha)
Red started at her new school this week. It’s a structured 3 y.o. preschool program, so hopefully she likes it better than her daycare. She was pretty excited about the gerbil in the room. I met with a possible in-home daycare last night. The hours she wants the new baby and Red are 12-4pm which still leaves a good chunk of the day uncovered. I hate to burden my mom and sister with the other hours. Sometimes there are no other hours, just depends on RKY’s crazy schedule that week.
I weighed 144.6 at my last appt on Monday. (probably 143 nekkid) So I am still on track to gain the recommended 20lbs or so. Probably hit 150 before birth. I barely ate on Monday, but I made up for it yesterday. Some days I am ravenous, other days I just feel full and disgusting all day long. Not eating the healthiest foods lately I had a hot ham and cheese from Hardees last night. Then some of Red’s leftover chicken strips and lots of candy. Gotta have the candy. Craving Pepperjacks chicken burrito bowl. Maybe tomorrow I will finally satisfy it.
