I miss Running

If the weather were you are has been like the weather here it makes you want to get outside. And that is what Chloe Belle and I have been doing every day that it has not been raining. Shortly after I found out I was pregnant, I decided to give up running until after I had the baby. I realize that most doctors say it's perfectly safe up to a certain point. However, I know myself and how often I end up tripping while running (i.e. Less than 6 months ago I fell while running and severely sprained my ankle). So, I thought the safer route, at least for me, would be a daily walks.

Today we went to the park and we were passed by several runners. I hadn't really thought much about wanting to run until I saw them. I think I've said before, I'm not an extreme runner (usually only 3 miles) so my body doesn't seem to "crave" it like those who are religious about it. But, I will say that I did have a slight urge to jog a little when I was getting passed up.

However, I am finding that I'm still getting a nice little workout with my brisk walks. I'm also supplementing the walks with the pregnancy DVDs below. These are not as good as my Jillian Michaels' workouts, but I'm sure once the belly gets bigger even these might prove to be difficult.

I'm not a huge distance runner, either - matter of fact, I just started 3 months ago. I got fitted for some running shoes at a running store, and it has made a world of difference! Don't worry - you'll be back out there in no time, because running is a life affirmation!
