Well hello 2012.
As much as I love Christmas, I am always happy when the holidays are over and I can return to my normal routine and get ready for a new year! The feasting is over and I can get back on track without the busyness of holiday parties, family gatherings, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I love this time but my stomach can only handle so much indulgence!
Here is my week 10 of running during my pregnancy:
Tuesday: 5.5 miles (45:27) mixed up the pace to keep it interesting (between 7.0 – 7.5 on the treadmill)
Wednesday: 5 miles at 8:23 pace. Threw in some inclines/ladders to keep me from getting bored!
Thursday: 5 miles at 8:23 pace. Kept the pace steady on this run. Needed it after a very rich meal with my family Wednesday night.
Friday: 3.59 miles at 8:20 pace.
Saturday: 10 miles at 7:57 pace with the Varsity Sports group run. Really enjoyed running with a group today and kept me motivated to finish up my run!
Total: 29 miles
This week, despite feeling tired, I have felt really great. The nausea is much better but now I just feel hungry all the time. Nothing sounds good to me and then I will have a crazy craving that comes from out of nowhere and that is all that I can think about to satisfy my craving! Last week it was a shrimp po-boy, the week before, a loaded bake potato. Today, I was desperate for a Subway Veggie delite sub. I am not very rational about food when it comes to pregnancy! Overall, though, feeling good despite being more tired. I had this week off of work so I’ve enjoyed being home during the week and taking some time off for the holidays. We had a quiet NYE this year and cooked steaks at home. I did not make it to midnight on New Year’s. I guess there is always next year to celebrate and bring in the New Year with a bang!
Hope everyone has a blessed, and happy New Year!
