Yesterday was Day 1 of week 6 of the Another Mother Runner Finish It 5K plan. The plan was to run 3 segments of 10 minutes a piece with a warm up and cool down.
I've been struggling lately with exhaustion and just plain not feeling well. Yesterday was the first day I was able to do exactly what the plan called for!! I was and am pumped! I ran slower than I usually do but I don't care. It just felt good to be running. I ran/walked 3.75 miles. The longest Ive ran in a while to.
Maybe the 2nd trimester feeling a little better and energy is kicking in???!!
Runs like those make me feel like I can keep this up throughout the whole pregnancy. They make me feel strong and capable. I start to remember that all things are possible. I will be able to run through this pregnancy. I will stay active. I will be able to handle 2 kids with the help of my family and husband of course. I can do this.
Today is a rest day for me. It is supposed to be cross training, but I'm listening to my body. In order to keep up with running I need to take more rest days. I'm cool with that. Time to play with my baby before work. :) Mommy wins.
