I have found it difficult to kind of "change" my mindset as of late...meaning, that when I'm exercising, my "normal" is to want to go FASTER, to run HARDER, to run LONGER....this last week, when I have pushed myself to run 3 miles and 3.5 miles straight, I have felt completely DRAINED and that next day is usually one of my so called "bad" days. So I have had to mix walking in to my routines...which I'm OKAY with at this point. Hopefully, my body will take to that a little bit better and I'll be able to get some form of exercise in each day. May not be as much as I really WANT to do, but it's something!!!

I'm sad that my friend is running races without me :( But I know that I'll be back into it eventually and me growing a little baby is the most important thing for me to be doing at this point in my life.

Ya know, you're the one who started all this. I wouldn't even be running if it weren't for you. What's a few stupid races compared to what YOU GET in return anyway....a beautiful child to love and adore for the rest of your existance!!!
Still, I know how you feel. I would feel EXACTLY the same way. You'll be back before you know it and we'll jamb as many races in as we can! The only difference is, when you get back, I MIGHT actually be able to keep up with you! :)
