I think this might become a weekly blog topic for me now that I’m pregnant. If I only had a brain….
I could wile away the hours
Conferrin’ with the flowers
Consultin’ with the rain
I swear. I promise. I cross my heart. I pinky promise. I had a brain before I got pregnant. Something happened after we heard the baby’s heart beat. Since then I have moments daily where I embarrass myself, laugh at myself, and apologize over and over again for my lack of a brain.
This weeks scarecrow moment……….
My endomondo was working yesterday! For 12 miles I kept questioning the mileage of my run. I over analyzed my pace. I second guessed myself. My endomondo was tracking kilometers instead of miles. (It’s okay to laugh! I couldn’t stop laughing and shaking my head when I discovered it before bedtime).
The good news – I know my body and my running. My run continues to get stronger.
My running total – 11.92 (let’s just call it 12. If I would NEVER end a run with only .08 left, but what the heck! Not too bad for guessing!)
Things to work on – goofing off! My mile times were great yesterday EXCEPT when I stopped to use the bathroom (twice), talked to another couple, and spent at least 3 minutes searching my camelbak for GU and reassuring the guy on the trail that me and Mister Maute Moo are fine. Don’t worry! I’ll be more focused on race day. Did I mention it is 2 weeks away?
1 – 12:02
2 – 16:42 (1st bathroom break)
3 – 13:18
4 – 12:15
5 – 12:56
6 – 12:42
7 – 13:32
8 – 15:41 (searching for GU)
9 – 13:13
10 – 17:59 (2nd bathroom break, too much talking)
11 – 12:37
12 – 12:30
50% of my miles are in the 12s! Definitely an improvement!!!! I promise I’ll work on my bathroom breaks (I didn’t need the 2nd one. I just used it since it was there), my talking, and keeping my GU in a spot that is easily accessible.
And my brain should return by 2013 – post pregnancy, post breast-feeding.
