Its been somewhat of a rough week. My cold got worse. I didn’t run on Tuesday but I also did not get up early on Wed and run! I woke up early on Wednesday so congested and feeling awful so I decided to sleep in and take a work from home day (since my co-workers would not have wanted to listen to me blow my nose all day anyway!).
Later in the day on Wednesday I convinced myself to go for a quick 3 mile run to see if it would clear out some of the congestion. I ended up feeling really great and turning it into a 7 mile run! The best part was that I felt like it did clear my head a bit.
Yesterday was our 4th anniversary. After work we went for a 5 mile run together and while I really tried to psych myself up for it, I really just wanted to get it done with so we could go to dinner. Well, we ran and it was kind of cold and got dark early with scattered little rain drops here and there. Afterwards I was coughing a lot. We had a really nice dinner though and I was thrilled to wake up this morning feeling much better. I went for a short little 3 miler today at lunch. It wasn’t as great as I thought. It was very pretty out and the weather was perfect, but I just felt a little uncomfortable pressure where the baby is.
Tomorrow, I will attempt to run 12 miles straight through all by myself as Tim is leaving really early for a football game. I’m hoping I can sleep in, and I’m really hoping I don’t have to stop too many times to go to the bathroom. Then I’m heading to visit with my mom and grandma as we go attend a fall festival and chili cook off! Sounds fantastic!
I gained 2 pounds since last week, although I wonder if some of it is just from the rich food we had for dinner last night. Surprisingly, I’m not getting overly concerned about it. Baby has been moving a lot lately and I really can’t wait until next Thursday when we find out if it’s a little boy or girl.
That’s about all that’s going on right now. I wish I could go home and take a nap. I’m so tired, but I think its just from this stupid cold and not really sleeping very well at night.
