So I guess I'm netting one step forward, right? I'll take it!
Last week, I ran 19 miles, all of it with the double stroller. I felt really good on most of those runs except for one day when it was particularly warm and I ran out of water. It's hard for me to remember to take my time and bring my breathing back to a reasonable pace, especially when I'm feeling good. My weight keeps steadily increasing (up 12 pounds now from the start), but I feel like I'm much more healthy during this pregnancy than with Miles and Vivienne.
Yesterday, I went out for a jog, and I felt pretty bad. I had some pulling sensations in my stomach muscles and my right shin was acting up - almost feeling like a shin splint. I ended up running about a mile and then walking about 2.5 more miles. I'm going to try to remember to take it easy on myself and not push too hard.
I don't want to ask the OB about the pulling sensations in my tummy, because I don't want them to tell me that I can't run anymore. Jason thinks that's poor reasoning, and I know he's right. I'll ask them at my appointment this Friday. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that yesterday was just a tired day for my body.
