Running during my first trimester has not been an easy challenge. In fact, I have not had a solid run of more than 2 miles since January 6. Lethargy and nausea left me wanting to do nothing at all but lay in bed. For a couple of weeks I was barely able to eat anything, and then this week the nausea went away and I feel back to normal (sans the little bit of belly weight gain).
It recently snowed more than 10 inches in Virginia Beach so the neighborhood roads are still packed with snow and ice.
Although very boring, the safest choice was to go to the gym and run on the dread mill. And I’m so excited because I was able to run 30 minutes without stopping! I finally feel back to my old running self. I’m hoping to be able to run 3-5 miles three days a week. And maybe build up my mileage some, comfortably.
