week 16 recap
On to week 17 which hit on Friday, and 4 month mark which hits tomorrow. Still running strong, and getting some speed back after losing it from knee issues! Last week I beat my record for # of times going to the bathroom during a run. Boo. It hits mostly during the first 30 minutes and then I'm ok. Any other fellow prego runners, is this how it is for you? I felt good and normal most of this week - Yay! Next weekend is the Philly Distance run - I'm a little nervous about the bathroom situation, but most of the time when I'm doing a race, I forget about discomforts. Hopefully there will be lots of port-a-potties or places to squat! As soon as I got to that 5k on Tuesday I had to pee, but I forgot about it when I started running. Maybe alot of it is mental!
This weekend, we went to Shea to see the Mets play, and stayed with my brother. Didn't sleep the best ever and wish tomorrow was Sunday again :( !

Monday: Run 30 minutes (3.25 miles/9:14 pace), yoga class (enjoyed very much!)
