I wish I had something fun to post about but I don't. I've been sick for about 11 days and have only ran once during that time. I had one trip to the gym where I used the AMT machine & did some weight lifting and two power walks. All were hard. It is a combination of my horrible cold and the discomfort I have been feeling. I really hoped to be able to say I ran up until I delivered, but now I am not so sure that will happen. I will give it a shot tomorrow or Sunday, very slow & very easy!! I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow so I should be happy I can do any form of exercise at this point.
On another note, a ton of running friends and my dad are running The Qualifier marathon this Sunday. I really wanted to be there to cheer them on, but I am staying home. I know a few, including my dad, are going after BQ's. And wouldn't you know it, it's supposed to reach 83 degrees and high humidity that day. My dad can't win! First dealing w/ the awful conditions in Boston and deciding to run smart versus pushing for a BQ and now this. One good thing is that the start times are no where near as late as Boston. It starts at 7:30am, almost 3 hours earlier than Boston started so hopefully that will be a positive factor. I want my dad to BQ so badly! I can't run Boston next year without! I mean, I will if I have to, but I would prefer him to be there too!!
Anyway, that's about it. See, I told you I have nothing fun to post about. I will leave you with this gem. Taken Wednesday after a trip to the gym. I am huge. :-)
