Speaking of running, I have more or less fallen off a cliff and am now really waddling when I run. I am lucky to run 10:00 pace anymore. While I don't need walk breaks necessarily, I've been forcing myself to take one every mile or so since it's been pretty hot out.
On Friday I ran with my buddies JenC and Evie and sons. Everything was going great and I felt really good despite the 80 degrees. We were cruising for 4 miles, but right around 3.5 I felt a super weird feeling low low down in my belly. #2 was moving around and pushing on something weird. I leaned over on the BOB and told my friends I needed to stop. I tried to explain it wasn't a big deal, just uncomfortable. I'm sure it looked like I was going into labor or something, but it wasn't contractions or cramping at all, just baby movements on a weird spot. We walked and she moved off the nerve or whatever she was on within a couple of minutes and I was fine. I always feel like I must seem like a crazy freak to still run when stuff like that happens, but really I felt great otherwise so I'll keep on trucking while I can!
I'm not sure I have the will to run by myself anymore, though. I'm up for a slow 3-4 miler any time. Just let me know if you'll be in the neighborhood and let's meet up!
