Getting my run on.

Not Right Now

It’s definitely spring here in Minnesota. Oh sure, we could get another blast of winter in the form of sleet or freezing rain or even a snow shower or two but with highs in the 50′s this week, it’s definitely spring. There’s a bit of snow still left in our yard but those are only where the huge piles of snow had been before this last warm spell. And as we drive here and there you can’t help but notice all the people out enjoying the warmth. Runners, walkers, bicyclists are everywhere! I have to admit I’m a bit jealous of them. But on the other hand? Not really.

It’s not that I don’t want to be out there running with them. It’s that this eight months pregnant body of mine is just not up to the task. Every night my back aches. I get winded just walking up the stairs at home (might have to do with the baby constantly pressing on my lungs!). I’m in that uncomfortable stage of pregnancy. Exercise at this point sounds like torture. Of course so does sitting for too long and I can’t seem to get comfortable at night so I end up tossing and turning. This silly baby in my does not like the mattress impeding his space so he punches and kicks it all night long as I lay on this side or that one.

I’m just tired. And I’m hoping that when I get my body back, oh say in June, that I’ll be excited about getting out there and joining the runners on the sidewalks.
