Okay so technically I am 9 weeks today, but I’m a little slow posting, so this is my 8 week update. Before I do my questions I just want to write a little bit on how running is going. I’ve made it a goal of mine to try and run throughout this whole thing, starting with a half marathon next month that I signed up for long before we found out.
Running is really hard!! At 8 weeks I can already tell that its just going to keep getting harder. I was doing so good at first. Running 6 miles and feeling great the whole time. When I slowed my pace down from a 9 minute mile to an 11 minute mile, it first felt like I could just run forever at that pace, but last weekend there was a whole slew of other things going on. Tailbone pain is at the top of my list right now (which usually goes away a few minutes into running). I’m just so nervous still about over doing it, so if I feel like I’m sweating too much or breathing too hard I take it down to a walk, which is very frustrating for someone who doesn’t like to walk on a run. Usually if I’m not feeling it I would just cut the run short, but I don’t like to walk. So this is definitely a change in pace (no pun intended) that I really have to get used to. I hope after my first doctor appt. and I get the A-Ok that everything looks good, I’ll be less paranoid.
