February Recap/Resurfacing

Hello! I've been more or less AWOL from the blog world for almost 2 weeks now and am happy to return. The last two weeks have been a more than wild ride in my life. Eventually I'll be able to tell you all about what's been going on, but not just yet. Some things have been beautiful, some things have, quite frankly, been really difficult. Most importantly, the baby seems to be doing well and we continue to prepare for his birth. The difficult things, well, they will work themselves out one way or another. I have faith in that.

So, onward and upward--a February recap!

Miles ran/walked: 24.8 (considering I was out for a week, I'll take it!)

# Workouts: 8

Favorite run: 4.1 miles on 2/17 @ 10:48 pace. It was easily the most rewarding, best run I had all month. I felt great.

Current obsession: Sleep! Night time sleep is often interrupted and my days are so busy. I napped for almost 2 hours today and it was gorgeous. Very, very soon I will be able to indulge in last minute baby prep and I'm also looking forward to that very much. :)

Pregnancy Stats
# Weeks: 35/40, about 8 months

Weight gained: ~24 lbs. Massive carb consumption + lower mileage = higher weight gain. Oops! But, still totally in line with healthy limits for this point in my pregnancy, so I'm happy.

How running has been affected: One word--pace. I am much slower than I was and I'm walking more frequently. If it looks like a hill, I'm walking it. Mostly I'm just hoping to stay active this month. Oh, and cut back on the ice cream. It's a little out of control. Seriously. You know you have a problem when you're at the froyo place before it opens.

I promise I have not forgotten about you all! I really haven't posted or read blogs in almost 2 weeks. Hopefully I'll be able to make the rounds in the next day or two and get caught back up with everyone. Please excuse the absence--it really has been extra crazy up in here!

Welcome back! Glad you are still able to be active. I don't blame you at all for walking anything that resembles a hill!

Glad you are active and you succeed in walking/running at a very good pace.
I cannot wait for seeing a picture where you run with the baby jogger!!!!

You are doing an amazing job of staying active! Some of us have been known to walk hills even when not pregnant. ;)
