Change of Plans

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 ;-)

 'Til next time...

P.S. Don’t forget to get in on the giveaways! Win one of two copies of Train Like a Mother by Sarah Bowen Shea and Dimity McDowell here. Win a box of Boresha’s fat burning coffee or tea here. Good luck!

Cograt:) I'm glad you got good news.
I'll be running my first marathon next fall, and hopefully my 2 kids will let me train without modifying too much my running plan. Have you ever tried the FIRST training plan? I'd be curious to read what you think about it.
Take it easy and enjoy the ride:)

Congratulations!!!
Wonderful news - and yes, a marathon of a different kind.
At 36 wks here - I don't know if I'm nearing the finish line or if the marathon is just beginning!!

Congratulations! Looking forward to hearing how this particular marathon goes...I never could run while pregnant. Or maybe I just used it as an excuse to be lazy. More likely. :)

Congratulations! Sounds like you've done this before so you have plenty of experience but I took it way easy during my first trimester and it made it difficult for me to get back into a good groove in the second trimester. I eventually did but not this pesky third trimester is making it hard to get out the door and exercise!
