Well, hey there! I was on tap for a 55-60 mile week until Friday happened, but I’m super happy to get 50 miles at this point! I’m happy to get any miles at this point, actually, and running has helped me keep my sanity and some sense of normalcy.
The baby is super low and right. there. so I have lots of pelvic pressure and nerve compression, but once I warm up slowly, I’m good to go. I did a few walking miles this week but I only counted my running miles toward my weekly 50 miles. This is what my week looked like as far as running!
Monday– 8 early treadmill miles at 9:13 min/mile pace
Tuesday– Getting a bit miserable. I ran 7 miles, some on the treadmill, some outside, at about a 10 min/mile pace. I walked 3 miles later on in the evening but I don’t count them as running miles. SIGH. Baby needs to exit stage south.
Wednesday– I ran 3 miles at 9:13 pace, then 2 miles at 8:57 pace, 2 miles at 8:34 pace, and then the last 3 miles at 9:13 pace to make it 10 miles for the day. YEAHYAAHHHH felt like gold.
Thursday– I had a decent sleep last night with barely any contractions (AMAZING) so I slept in until 7:20 this morning! I got an 8 mile treadmill run done while Callum played on my phone and tortured Katie. I did the same interval workout I did last week, minus the 7:30 min/mile. My right piriformis is getting sore because my SI joint is all janky from the baby. No point in going to physio now, though. I’ll just hang in there.
Friday– Well…. i managed a suuuuuper slow 7 miles on the treadmill and then walked the last mile to make 8 (but I’m only counting 7!!!)
Saturday– After a very, VERY long night and day, I needed to reset my normalcy button so I hit the treadmill for 1 mile of walking and 4 miles of running at a 9:13 min/mile pace. MAN do I ever feel good. If running was a thing, I’d kiss it right now. Maybe even a little butt grab and a grope.
Sunday– After 10 (broken) hours of Gravol-induced sleep, I ran 6 miles on the treadmill at 9:13 min/mile pace to make it 50 miles for the week!
If running was a noun, what would you do to it?
