Running & Baby Bean {Week 10}

This last week Baby Bean was the size of a kumquat which is 1.3-1.7 inches. Bean had a lot of changes during week 10 including forming tiny toes, external ears, lips and tooth buds. I am still flabbergasted ALL of my pants feel tight when Bean only weighs about 0.2 ounces.

I felt pretty good all week, except for a yucky phase on Tuesday. When I first woke up I didn’t feel terrific, but appeared to feel better as I got up and started moving around. Made it through the work day and had time to get in 4 miles before farmgirlfit. As soon as I got done running I felt like death. Powered through my workout at farmgirl and then just never felt that great for the rest of the night. Ended up going to bed before 9pm for the second night in a row.

Monday 9/30:
Super LONG and TOUGH workout at farmgirlfit.
5 rounds for time:
10 KB snatch + lunge per side (26#s)
15 hand release push ups
20 medicine ball cleans (15#s)
25 v-abs
50 double unders
Total time 34:38

Tuesday 10/1:
Ran 4.02 miles before farmgirlfit. Farmgirl was divided up into 3 sections for the nightly workout--
1.                   2 rounds of max back squats (95#s) + 25 ab mat sit ups. My max reps were 25 + 26 = 51
2.                   16 EMOM (every minute on minute)
10 push presses (55#s)
15 KBS (35#s)
Each round we alternated between push presses and kbs
3.                   Max plank- my attempt was pathetic as I have not been doing core work. My time was 1:45
Pennies for Pull-Ups: 1

Wednesday 10/2:
I had the perfect run after work- everything just felt good! Ran a total of 5.07 miles

Thursday 10/3:
I was going to run and go to farmgirl, but I was so exhausted when the afternoon came that I ended up just going home and taking a rest day.

Friday 10/4/13
Ran 3.51 miles before farmgirlfit
1 rep max should press-- Mine was 70#s, I couldn't quite do 75#, but it was still a 5# PR!
Followed by 6 rounds for time--
6 front squats @ 85#s
9 knees to elbows
12 box jumps
100 meter run

Total time 18:29
Pennies for Pull-Ups: 9

Saturday 10/5/13:
Half marathon #19! Decided to do run this on Friday afternoon mostly because I couldn't pass up the great deal. Only $20 for race day registration!
I will recap this later this week, but the course was short so I only ran 12.78 miles.

Sunday 10/6/13:
My left hip was super angry after the half marathon so I took the day off. Instead I worked on phase 1 of Baby Bean's nursery. Why am I starting so soon? Well, I have a crap ton of clothes which all happen to be in the room that will soon become a nursery. I had to go through my clothes to toss out ones I don't wear, put my summer clothes in storage AND move all of my clothes to other closets in the house. This took me literally all day. The nursery room is almost empty of my things, but still has quite a bit of Mr. Healthy Diva's stuff on it. I hope to have the room entirely cleared out in the next couple of weeks so that we can lay carpet.

Total miles for the week: 25.75 miles (Goal met! I wanted to run between 25 & 26 miles for the week.)

Questions for you:
What is the cheapest you have paid for a 1/2 marathon day of????
How often do you decide to a race last minute, especially a race that is a longer distance?

I hope that everyone had a fabulous week!!!!



  1. Wow! Look at you! You'll be the fittest pregnant friend I've ever known! You are! Nice job. I'm not sure the cheapest but the race I might be running in this next weekend as a fun run is only $30 and I thought that was cheap!

    1. Thanks Amanda! I trying to stay as active as I can, but it has been hard. I would much rather sleep then workout on most days. :-)

  2. I don't think I have ever paid under like $50 for a half. I would have DEFINITELY signed up at that price! How did it go??

    1. It went good! Way better than I thought for having not trained for it. I will admit that I was worried and ran with my cell phone in case I needed to call my husband, but I made it through the entire race feeling fantastic.

  3. Aw yay! I just found your blog and can tell I have some catching up to do! I have never paid for a half marathon the day of but I think the least I have paid was $65 - I def need to do some bargain hunting!

    1. Thank you Christa!!! We are lucky to have some pretty cheap races in Spokane. Most half marathon prices that I have paid are in the $50-65 range. Finding a bargain is always fun!

  4. You're doing awesome! And wow- what a great deal. I'd definitely do a last minute half for that price!

    1. Thank you Laura! I am trying to stay as active as possible. Sometimes it is hard when all I want to do is sleep.

  5. So impressed by the cost of that half marathon!! Most of the local half's around here around $40-$50 if you register early, but prices increase as you near the date. Looks like you had an overall great week!

    1. I couldn't believe how cheap the race was. I told my husband I
      couldn't not run it because it was so cheap! We are lucky that most of
      the races put on in Spokane are fairly cheap. It isn't uncommon to
      find a 5K for $5.

  6. oh my gosh I just caught up with your blog after so long and I can't believe how excited I got, when I saw this baby business. Congrats! I too, am expecting and am 8 weeks.

  7. Ugh - I forgot to put my pledge in for your pull-ups - can I still add in my money?


I love your comments & inspiration
