Running Update

Well, I'm still trying to run, but I'm slowing down.  For the past few weeks, I have gone about 15 miles per week.  I'm really just doing a gentle jog with some walking to get my heart rate back down when it gets too high.  Much of the time, I have been pushing the stroller with the kids, but sometimes my mom has watched the kids for me while I run without the stroller.  WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE!!  It's so much easier to not push the kids, and it's so wonderful to have some time alone to let off some steam, reflect a bit and enjoy nature.  (Thanks for babysitting, Grandma & Grandad!)

Last week, with the hand, foot and mouth disease, I only did about 8 miles.  This week, I haven't run at all, but I did go to Pilates, as usual, and did a yoga class and lots of yard work (mowing the lawn with the reel mower and planting some things).  I'm hoping to stay pretty active throughout this pregnancy, but I can feel myself starting to slow down.
