Attack of the Birds; Part II

I'm not running that way until after the nesting season is over... when is that anyway?  October?  I'll be too big at that point, so I guess I won't be going that direction on foot until January 2011.

They came after me again.  And this time, a lady walking her dog got to witness my running/flailing/yelping.  At one point, I turned my head around to see where the black devil was, and it was diving right for my head!  I ran faster.

I ended the 6 miles on a different route and with a VERY bizarre pain in my nether-regions.  I have a doctor appointment on Friday, so I'll be asking about it and if I can keep running.  I have a 10K on Saturday, but if I have to walk it, I will.  But I think it will be okay.  I'm pretty sure (hoping) that it was just muscle/ligament stretching that happens with pregnancy.

Also, my pace has slowed WAY down with pregnancy and the heat.  This is going to be a LONG summer.

Awk!! Evil bird. I have never had that happen to me on a run, but there was a nasty momma bird in my front tree who squaked at me every day I went outside - so annoying. One day it was just gone. Thank gwad! Yeah, I can't imagine heat + pregnancy = anything speedy. But you're still out there and that's so great!! Hang in there!!!!

My wife has been complaining of all SORTS of weird muscle and ligament soreness as various parts of her are expanding. Keep us posted what the DR says.

And hey - you could always carry a tennis racket for the birds. It could be like cross training!@
