Does Walking Count?!

Does Walking Count?!

So today my main goal was to improve upon yesterday’s workout. I slowed down my pace to a 13:30 minute mile. In the end I completed 3 miles in about 45 minutes. I walked about a mile of it during the course of the workout. Ashton can get in a position which shoots a sharp pain in my tailbone. I remember Anthony used to do that too. Ashton does it more often and the only way to make it go…

37 Weeks and 1 mile later…

37 Weeks and 1 mile later…

So the big news of the week is that little Ashton is now considered Full-Term! Yes, my boy can safely come at any time and that would be wonderful. Maybe he will surprise us a little early… Or he may stay put until my scheduled c-section on 1-11-11 (which coincidentally is exactly 2 weeks from today). Whatever the case may be I have 2 weeks or less to go. The good news is that I am pretty much over the…

A Week of No Running….

A Week of No Running….

Yes, it has officially been one week since I ran. NOT because of any pregnancy issue but I am getting over bronchitis. It’s been a long week but I am telling myself that it is ok to take this break and my body needs to rest and recover. I need to be healthy before Ashton arrives and for right now that means no running! I have felt better the past two days and I am hoping by Sunday I can…

Made it to 35 weeks!

Made it to 35 weeks!

Yes, I am truly counting down the weeks now. Just 2 more weeks until I’m considered “full-term.” I have been running quite a bit on treadmills the past week. The temps have been in the 30’s and I am not waking up and running early in the cold by myself anymore. We still don’t have our own treadmill (hopefully within the next month or so that will change) so I’ve been using mom and dad’s or Harding’s. My pace is…

St. Jude’s Half Marathon and other running stuff….

St. Jude’s Half Marathon and other running stuff….

John with the kids and their signs waiting for mom and dad Nana and Papa walk by! After the race- They did it!! First off, let me say I’ve made it to 34 weeks still running. It’s getting so HARD to do and today was not a good run by any means. 4 miles with Leslie at a 10:06 avg. The pace doesn’t bother me. The constant pressure building was the KILLER! I don’t mean to complain. I’m so glad…
