Can I run now?? (updated)

3 months and counting... thought I would spare you a real belly pic :)

Today I wanted to run 8 to 12 miles. So far I've tried running 3 times and had various side stitches each time. I got in 3 miles. I'm determined to get at least another 5, but I'm majorly frustrated. Had I gotten up before I ate breakfast I probably could have done it, but I feel like my stomach is playing games with me this week!!! It is disheartening and I wish I got out of bed when I woke up. I had a bowl farina for breakfast, and I guess I never had that and then went to run before. I hate farina right now!! Stick with what you know!

This week as a whole can be deemed a rest week. I had to cut alot of workouts short and didn't get in close to the mileage that I hoped. I guess with the marathon walk/jog coming up next weekend, I can say that I'm tapering, but with the horrible workouts this week, I am more doubtful everyday that I can even finish 1/2 next weekend. Nevertheless I will still line up at the start and see what my body wants to do that day.

3 months to go! I'm excited to meet the baby and then to be able to torture my body without having to worry about hurting the baby in anyway. So come out early little baby!!

What foods give you the stomach ebbie geebees??

Last week's stats (week 25)
Monday - yoga
Tuesday - 8 miles (around 10 minute pace)
Wednesday - swim 1700 yards
Thursday - 3.9 miles (11:20 pace)
Friday - morning 6.1 miles (10:10 pace)
Sat - 4 miles am (11:22 pace)
Sun - 3 miles (12:00 pace) then got through 5 more, the last 4.5 at 9:58 mm!! A little relief

30 miles and 1700 yards, 1 hr yoga

  1. dim sum totally gives my belly the ebbie geebees! I want to like it, I really do...but its all slimy and ... ug!

    Sorry your running is taking a backseat to belly anger! I hope you get your 5 more miles in today! :) Just give yourself a little time to digest, and I bet you'll be up for it!

    You are starting to actually look pregnant in that pic! :)

  3. My husband cooks giant meals on Saturday, and he made not one, but TWO cream-based pastas for dinner. This morning's run: stomach lock! Guess what they say is try about heavy meat and cream the night befor a run.

    Good luck with your race next week. Keep listening to your body. Those 3 months will fly by.

  5. You are looking good. Wow, just 3 more months! The time is going to fly.

    I am sure you are going to finish next week because you are determined and smart about where you are. Your plan on walking and running will get you across the finish.

  7. I came across your blog through Michelle Simmons blog. I have an 8 week old and ran through my entire pregnancy but found that my stomach was much sensitive to what I ate than pre-pregnancy. The good news is that it returned to normal after the pregnancy! Enjoy the sleep you can get in the last 3 months.

  12. Relax, kiddo. You're being really hard on yourself. Most gals sit with their feet up when they're pregnant. You're doing amazing. Keep going if you're enjoying it. If not, call it a day.

    I hate to tell you, but it gets worse from here on in. I'm 31 weeks and contemplating hanging up my trainers. Hopefully I've got another few weeks in me yet though. There's a 5K Santa race I'd love to do at the beginning of December.

  13. i'm pretty impressed that you haven't decided, "Oh I'm pregnant so I'm going to sit my ass on the couch and eat what I want and then take a nap." Good for you for keeping up with it. It may be a bit harder or come in second place but you've stuck with it and didn't sit on the couch in a pair of sweatpants and give up.

    Looks like a great upcomming week.

  14. LOL not too early though! I swear they never come out when you want them too. With my first, she came 2 weeks early (I was in denial that I was in labor. I really didn't want her to come out) The second, came on her due date. I wanted her out sooo damn bad. But yeah, nope.

  17. You are so cute! The baby will be here before you know it.

    Sushi makes me *shudder*. I know people live for the stuff but it makes me gag.

  18. Baby: I'm sure your Mom meant early, but not TOO early!

  19. Wow! You look amazing and you inspire me to keep running!

  20. Wow great week. Way to get in some awesome yoga and swim sessions and let your legs rest.

    Great pic too, you look amazing.

    I actually have sort of an iron stomach and dont' get queasy too often. That said, my body is starting to reject mass quantities of greasy food. I'm pretty glad about that though. :)
