Oh great. I have the worst kink in my neck. I rolled over last night in the middle of the night and felt something pull but dismissed it. When I woke up I was in agony!! I can't turn my head or move my arm all the way without pain. And of course I can't take anything for it either!! I brought 2 hand towels and a bath towel that I could make into a warm compress here at work but I haven't mustered up the guts or the energy to nuke my towel in the break room. I really don't want to have to explain what it is that I'm doing. Heh. Hopefully when I work out in an hour or so that will help.
Speaking of working out... I think running is definitely for sure done until peanut arrives. I know I keep threatening this, but this time it's true. I ran 7 miles two weeks ago, .25 miles last week, and 0 so far this week. Besides my legs, peanut is low and sitting on my bladder now and as you've seen I am really big now and feeling too awkward to safely stay on the treadmill if it's going over 4 mph! However, I've still been getting in about 5 workouts a week. I have been getting great 45-50 minute workouts in on the eliptical when I can get down to the gym at work and hilly power walks on my treadmill in my basement. I've also managed to work in a couple of really nice hikes at my favorite park.
And speaking of really nice hikes at my favorite park... On Saturday I am going to almost go for a run with almost every one I have run with since I've been pregnant with, only they will all run while I walk and then we are going to meet up for breakfast afterwards. I am so excited! I have missed all of them since I slowed way down and now stopped running all together and I cannot tell them how appreciative I am for their company and support over the months! I am one lucky lady!! This will probably be the last time I see them before peanut and next time I see them they'll each get to meet the little guy! How exciting!!
And speaking of getting to meet the little guy... 36 weeks today!
