So…you might have noticed, I didn’t run the Warrior Dash.
I’m also not going to be able to run that marathon I’ve been training for in Marquette next month.
Nor am I going to be running that FREE entry to the Brooksie Way Half Marathon I bugged you all mercilessly to help me win.
In fact, I haven’t even run at all in almost two weeks.
I’m pregnant. SURPRISE! :-)
We had some tense moments at the beginning and my doctor substantially cut my mileage back to no more than 3-4 miles at an easy pace. Me being the worry wart that I am decided maybe I just ought to put things on hold until we knew more.
But I went back to see the doc yesterday and all signs look good! He said based off of the training I had been doing, even with the little hiatus these past couple weeks, I could keep running, 8-10 miles max, keep it easy, although I’m thinking more along the lines of 3-5 and taking that extra time I would have been running and just SLEEPING. Either way it looks like that gorgeous fall marathon I was looking so forward to running will have to happen some other time. For now, I’ve got another more important marathon to tackle.
Besides, I know you all love those pregnant running posts of mine and were going through withdrawls, so I’m really just trying to keep my target audience happy, that’s all ;-)
