I am very (VERY) happy to report that my nausea is finally starting to ease up a bit.
<insert Hallelujah chorus here>
After two and a half months of all day, all night, no end in sight agony, I’m finally starting to feel a bit more energetic and more like myself. I still have moments every day where I feel sick and need to stop for a minute but otherwise, I feel like the end in coming. Whoop! I’m even starting to wean down my anti-nausea pills very slowly.
Last week was fairly uneventful as we said goodbye to March in anticipation of April’s arrival tomorrow and the hopeful melting of the snow so that Spring can get started. (note: I wrote this before seeing the forecast of blizzard weather and possible 25cms of snow. Blarg!)
I managed two short runs, a little bit of shopping to size up my workout clothes as my current ones are starting to feel a bit too snug to be really comfortable. I don’t think I’ll be wearing them for too much longer. But that’s ok because I found some seriously awesome shorts that should work well for the rest of this pregnancy and into post partum recovery.
So far, running feels really good but definitely hard. After all the injury time, my endurance has really suffered which is a huge source of frustration because it’s only going to get worse as the months go by. I want to be able to do more but I know my limits. I’m going to start adding in the bike so that I can still move my legs on non-running days after my exam in a couple of weeks. Right now, studying is my only real priority until that exam is written. Then I’ll have some breathing room to focus on other things.
