So I dragged my ass out of bed this morning to run with a friend at 6am. Which requires getting up at 5:30 am, which in my first trimester fog is not easy. But I did it and we had a nice 4 mile run. But during the run I was talking about how I hoped I wouldn't get morning sickness and that I was about 7 weeks along and no morning sickness yet and don't most people only have it bad during the first trimester and so on. Well, I get home and take a shower and Mushi and Tai (my dogs) were just being so stinking cute and cuddly that I had to get back in bed. So, I lay down for about 20 mins. When I got back up. I was so sick. Just a horrible wave of nausea, I got out of bed and immediately lay back down. I ate 2 pieces of toast and felt a little better. But now I have like one of those motion sick headaches. Icky.
Now I need opinions from my fellow running preggos. I signed up for 2 half marathons pre preggo. One is Sept 7th (I'll be about 9 weeks along) and one is Oct 19th (already in second trimester). Now the one in Oct I am definately doing even if I walk it b/c it is in CA and through the Redwood Forest and it will be my hubby's first half. But I wonder if I should do the one on Sept 7th, it's just here somewhere I run a lot and I originally really wanted to try and PR and am a little afraid I'll push myself too much? On one hand, the Munchkin has already run over 13 miles 4 times now. So, I know she can handle it. But on the other hand, I'm like what's the point, why risk it? I don't know if I want to run it really slow. I kind of want to just run it and if I am able to run it fastish great, if not, then I will jsut run/walk if i need to. So, should I do the Half Marathon in Sept? Give me your honest opinions. I am torn.
I am still feeling so elated and happy. I hate that I can't tell everyone. I want to post on my tri training blog so badly, but I know you can't just tell everyone at 7/8 weeks. It's too early. I keep telling myself, but that doesn't stop me. So far I've only told my family. 3 or 4 friends & a neighbor in Cleveland and then my 2 best friends who don't live here. But I want to tell everybody!
