Slow 3

Last night Jerry and I went for a run together: I made him swear, before we went, that he was gonna run with me and not just leave me in the dust. He swore, but his own condition was that he wanted to bring the Garmin along.

The run went fine, and it was nice to have someone to run with, but in the end, I had to learn the truth about our digits: 33:29 for a 3 miler. That's an average, according to Garmin, of 11:08/mile. I figured I was going about that slow as of late, but seeing it in actual, digital numbers kinda made me feel like poo.

Oh well, I'd better roll with it right? Because I'm likely to only get slower as Norah grows bigger!

Glad you had some company for your run. Slow or not, you are still running!

MCM Mama said...

Hey, at least you are still doing it! Towards the end, you'll look back at this and think you were speedy. ;o)

Lisa Slow-n-Steady said...

It's actually not THAT slow. You're doing great!

Mrs. K said...

The baby takes priority now and forevermore...get used to it. Your life is not your own. (But it's worth it!)

Amanda said...

I agree, it's not that slow:) But it is slower than you are used to so I can see where that would be frustrating.

Non-Runner Nancy said...

Yeah for Jerry for being out there with you and staying with you! You're doing great.

runner26 said...

I wouldn't worry about the pace. You are doing so awesome running while pregnant!!

Jamoosh said...

HOWEVER, post baby, those times will start creeping back down. SWEET!

Jess said...

Don't worry too much about the times, at least you're still able to get out there!

P.O.M. said...

Think about it like this - some people can't even run that fast without a little bun in the oven! You're doing great my dear.

Running is running. You'll be back up to speed in no time!

moni said...

Wow! That's still faster than me. You impress me everyday! Keep up the great work.

JojaJogger said...

Hey, I run 11 minute miles, too! Glad you're still enjoying the physical and mental health benefits of running.

aron said...

you are still running and thats what matters! :)

Wes said...

Yup. The numbers don't have any meaning now. Being out running? priceless!

Marcy said...

Girl you're still my hero for even running! I stopped exercising after the 2nd week I found out I was pg :P:

NancyPants said...

Don't beat yourself up over your time...the most important thing is that you are out there still running!!! You'll be that much further ahead once the baby comes. Great job!!!

SJ Goody said...

Its so fun that you can call her by her name. I almost slip sometimes but we're trying to keep ours a secret! And listen, be proud of yourself that you are still running. That is damn inspiring.

lifestudent said...

Thats where I'm running now - so it looks good to me! I'd hate to get beat by a pregnant lady in a race so I hope we dont meet up anytime soon...

Carly said...

Nice work! You are faster than I am.

AKA Alice said...

There should be a category for pregger-runners...you know, sorta like age-grade rating.

MizFit said...
