May running highlights:
- the Wisconsin half marathon
- 80.25 miles
- the return of the stroller run!
Overall I’m really pleased with this month. I’ve gone running at least 4 days a week. And generally if I don’t run Leo and I take a walk (unless it’s raining). I’ve averaging around 10:15 pace with the stroller and 9:30 or less if I go without (less if Dave is running with me – he’s speedy!). I’ve only had to take one day off for something pregnancy-related – on Thursday of last week my low abs were sore so Leo and I just did a short walk and I tried to take it easy the rest of the day. Other days I run according to how I’m feeling – 5 miles if I feel good, 4 if I feel okay, 3 or less if I’m tired. I’m hoping to keep it up!
Last Friday was the last day of May and also week 17!
We had a midwife appointment with all the typical actions – pee in a cup, blood pressure, heartbeat. Leo liked the heartbeat – “noise!” We should have an ultrasound scheduled soon, too!
I’ve been big into chili lately, so I made a huge batch in the crockpot to eat for lunch through the week. Still loving yogurt (with fruit and cereal, especially). I wouldn’t say no to ice cream, either…
How was your May running?
