Been avoiding my good friend, Mr. Treadmill, for the past week since the last time he and I met, he somehow pummeled my sacrum and low back to the point of not quite tears, but lots of whining and complaining to Mike. Every time I went to the gym, I'd look at him longingly, but not ready to be in pain for the rest of the day (and the following one, too.)
However, today, I was up for it. I had my amazing adjustment from Dr. Annie Banks (who herself is pregnant with twins...so complaining to her about low back pain kind of makes me feel like the biggest wimp ever.) and Lauren was there running next to me. Win win situation. Plus, I want to see how running feels since MIke and I head to Turks and Caicos in two weeks and I LOVE running on the beach. (Side note -- does anyone know if running on the beach is better suited for trail running shoes or regular running shoe? Post to comments if you've got any advice! I am thinking the sand is going to be packed for the most part.)
Run went well. 40 minutes of slogging it out. 6.2-6.3 mph is still pretty comfortable, but still really slow. Mike's going to drop my pregnant butt fast on vacation.
