Uh, wow. A marathon at 39 weeks?! I decided not to do a half marathon at only 11 weeks. Heh.

 

DSD wanted to do a 5k last Saturday (her first) so I agreed to go along with her for that. DH was bummed I wouldn't run the half marathon with him, but the alternative worked out nicely. I had resolved myself to not do any running and probably to skip the local marathon event next May, but it did feel good to get out and move about. The problem is, soon the ice and snow will be here and I don't want to be out in that. I've fallen before on winter runs, without any baby counterbalance. And the gym is just so blah. Trying to convince myself to go and lift some weights a few days a week again or join a group fitness class or something.

A marathon at 39 weeks sounds pretty awesome. I wonder how it physically feels to be bouncing a pregnant belly for that long? I guess she rant hrough pregnancy, so her muscles and ligaments must have developed gradually to support that weight. I'm also assuming she must have worn *some* kid of support. This was her third pregnant marathon! The others were in the second tri though, according to the article.

 

I'm a bit sore today! Shows me how horribly out of shape I am. I'm going to slowly plug away at this. If I didn't have so much stat homework to do before class I would go to the pool. Or so I tell myself. Man, getting into a comp swimsuit right now won't be fun. 

 

Aletheia - Yay for fellow grad students! I'm in a business school kind of researching in an area where economics meets psychology. I was a philosophy undergrad with dreams of one day going to grad school for symbolic logic. I thought I would devise a logic framework such that we could apply some of the level of rigor of economics to other social science arguments. Oh the many paths our lives can take. :)

I guess she didn't run the whole way- her time was over 6 hours.  But still.  Geez.

 

RosieL- what an interesting academic niche you've found for yourself!  I'm glad to have another grad student around here, too.

 

Didn't run today, either.  :(  It's easy to blow off now that it is so cold outside, and most of my running tops keep riding up.  I looked online at getting maternity running shirts, and YOWZA, my budget won't allow for that.  XL section of the goodwill, here I come.  Someday.  ;)

Anyone else still running?  I went ahead and joined a gym, as it's too cold for me outside now.   And it's a good thing, too, because running inside on the track has been really advantageous because I can't seem to run for 15 minutes without needing to pee!  Seriously- a 30 minute run yesterday, and I peed before beginning, potty break in the middle, and at the end.  I think my bladder is just getting squished as I run.  But I'm glad to not be outside and away from a bathroom.

I'm not so much a runner but I do spin class 3 days/week and cardio and yoga another 2-3 days/week. I work out at the YMCA and all of the instructors are awesome about making sure my form is good and I'm not pushing too hard. I stopped working out when I was pregnant with my daughter and I gained so much weight with her and was VERY out of shape. I'm determined to do better this time! I hadn't gained anything up until Halloween.. then I was regretting "checking" half of my daughter's chocolate from trick or treating. haha

LOL.  As I read this, I am eating "just one more" starburst from the halloween candy stash.  :)

I'm not working out at all, am very dissatisfied with this, and am trying to figure out how to fix the situation. It's not pregnancy, it's school that's keeping me from exercise. :-/ Thanks for bringing it up. I need to get my butt in gear.

I'm not a runner, but avid disc golf player. The course I play has a lot of elevation changes and is quite a workout (about 3 hours to play all 27 holes). I was playing once a day up until month 2 and the exhustion got the best of me. I'm slowly trying to make my way back. My only worry is I will end up with a seperated pubic bone like I did my first pregnancy. That took forever to heal up!

Asides from that, I want to swim more and stay active. I feel like I'm coming out of a coma, I was sooo exhausted first trimester.
