Mommy to R (8.23.11) and K (6.21.14).
TrishieTerp Too cute- congrats!SPurp13 - I'm right there with you.....at 22 weeks now. I held my mileage at 13-14 through week 16 & 17, only feeling really sore in my pelvis groin AFTER a run. Then I started feeling it near the end of my runs & dropped down to 10, 9, then 7 miles. I was actually able to go back up to 10 and then 8 (ran out of time but could have gone further) last week. So, don't give up or get too discouraged yet- I think my body was just adjusting to the added weight in my lower abdomen. M- ran 3 miles & did some yoga/stretching (hopefully more when I get home)T- travel for work W- long run....8 or 10???H/F going fishing- so will be on my feet, in water, wading for a quite a bitS - maybe get a bike ride in ??S- Easter
Mon- a little over 7 miles this morning.
Weds- Bootcamp + 5-6 miles
Fri- Bootcamp+ 5-6 miles
Sat- long run 10-12 miles.
Ran 40 miles last week- still feeling great other than having to stop 3xs to pee on my 11-mile LR! 29 weeks down- it's going fast.
@SPurp13 are you doing any strength exercises now? The cat/cow yoga pose is great for lower back, as well as the bird/dog. If you're still able to, I'd do some planks- front and sides. You can even do them from your knees if its too tough at first to hold them from your toes. I was able to do planks through my entire last pregnancy right up until I delivered at 37+4.
@ajhamb, no it hasn't. I ran 5 miles yesterday and it was painful by the end.I've decided that I'll drop down to the 5K option for my Columbia half marathon in two weeks, and possibly skip out on the Cincinnati Flying Pig half entirely for the first weekend in May. Then, I have two more halfs scheduled May 17th and June 1st, but I have time to see if this is a kink that will work out or something I'll have to deal with the entire pregnancy.I'm upset at the loss of mileage. But, I'm at peace with the idea that I will continue to run shorter distances as long as I can, and I can still do that with most of these races. Sure, driving 5 hours for a 5K seems silly. But. It is what it is, right?
