Miles Run: 30.5

Didn’t notice any changes this week, except for being slow.  It doesn’t bother me nearly as much as it used to, but I forget I can’t cover ground as quickly at times.  I’m loving the little maternity support belt that I got off of Amazon and I wear it every time I run, even without much needing support right now.  I just like the feeling of pressure against my belly when I run.

I signed up for a hilly 10K at the end of the month and I’m beginning the second week of the  nine week half marathon training plan just in case I feel up for the run once I get to May.  So far my energy has been good and nothing has hurt.  I was worried that the ligament pain was going to get worse and worse, but it’s been very mild and I’ve hardly felt it at all while running this week.

I can’t be the only pregnant running mom who sometimes feels ligament pain and freaks out that maybe my uterus is detaching and about to fall off. 🙂  At least I hope I’m not…
