I haven't been running. Is it because of an injury? No. Am I sick? Not at all. Burned out? Maybe. Pregnant? Definitely.
Seriously... I am pregnant. It's crazy and exciting for us, since we'd been trying for a year. We found out the night before the Shamrock 1/2 marathon (and I'm 100% sure that THAT was the reason for my PR).
Since the Riverton race, I haven't done anything. I'm not having any pregnancy symptoms (that one episode of puking was NOT morning sickness, it was a result of taking a multi-vitamin on an extremely empty stomach), I'm not even tired... but I just have no motivation to run anymore. I'm pretty sure it's because I know that I can't go as hard as I wanted to anymore.
The few people that I've told that are runners have said that they were advised NOT to run much during their pregnancy, so maybe I'm just preparing myself for the worst case senerio. I don't know what the deal is, but I'm hoping that after my first appointment on Wednesday that I will have answers and I will find my desire to run again.
Any suggestions for motivation? Any advice on running during pregnancy?
