Yes I Did!!!!

I did reach my 500 mile goal for the year of 2008!!! I am very proud of myself and have set a new goal for 2009: 800 miles! I have been thinking about running and my goals a lot lately. It has become such a big part of my life, something I love to do, something that pushes myself and I love that feeling. I, of course, have more goals in my mind then just running. Hence my 2013 goal of competing in the Ironman. That goal, to be completely honest, SCARES ME TO DEATH. That is ALOT of preparation and a lot of dedication. Yet, I still have a huge desire to compete. So, I will need to figure out many things in the next few years...main thing, where to train in the water and how I can get myself a bike.

My main goal for 2009 is to compete in a full marathon. I haven't figured out which race I will do yet, but I'm looking into it already. I will have many hours of training ahead of me...but I'm so up for the challenge!!!

I am 26 weeks, 6 1/2 months pregnant....I am still running. Not a lot by any means, but I'm still doing it. Many think I'm crazy!! haha...oh well. I am what I am I guess. It's getting harder and harder, the bigger my tummy gets. Some days I can do more then others, but I'm just doing what I can for the time being. Last week I only exercised 2 days. Took all of Thanksgiving off! :)

Last Monday I ran 2.5 miles and walked 1...And Tuesday I ran 1 mile and walked 2! Every day can be so different. For this week, Monday I ran 1 mile and walked 2 miles...last night I ran 2 miles and walked 1 mile. Don't know what I'm feeling up to today...maybe some yoga? I haven't done that in quite a while.

I am missing doing my P90x workouts:( The muscles in my arms aren't what they used to be!!!! Nathan even pointed out the other day at the dinner table..."wow, your arms are getting skinny again!" I'm like yeah! I'm losing all the muscle I had built up!!! I could lift weights and do SOME type of strength training, but I'm always so tired by the time I even do my cardio!!! And it's okay...I'm okay with that fact...because there's this cute little girl growing inside this tummy of mine that is more important right now. BUT, I still can't wait to start strength training again soon!!!

If anyone can accomplish such lofty goals you'd be the WOMAN. You are admirable in so many ways.

I knew you could do it! You should be VERY proud of yourself. Not many would be so dedicated to health and fitness while pregnant. You ROCK!
