Workout: 3.0-mile run
I feel heavy.
When I run, I feel heavy.
I can feel my shirts riding up as I move my arms front and back.
I can feel my belly as I put one foot in front of the other.
I can feel my breath become more labored earlier in the run with each passing day.
I just feel heavy.
I first noticed the feeling when I went for a run on Friday, the muscles in my abdomen tugging. My belly just hanging out. It's awkward and sort of gross, really. Like eating three banana splits. And I know you are super glad that I shared that with you.
The funny thing is, though, that as heavy as I feel, my pace isn't that bad. I'm no longer tracking it - officially, at least - but I am hovering just under 10-minute miles. Not too shabby after getting knocked up and a 13-pound weight gain. Of course, paced oesn't matter - it's just getting out there ;)
And baby boy agrees - he just kicked ... or punched ... or stuck out his butt.
