Walking is the new running

OK, for real this time. I'm no longer running. I haven't run in 10 days and that's cool. Walking, at 38 weeks preggo, is totally the new running. I'm so into it.

Well, not really. But I'm telling myself I am. When Conal hits the bed for his afternoon nap and I am dying -- dying -- to do the same? Oh, yeah. I tell myself I'm really into this whole walking-as-the-new-running thing. Sometimes it actually works.

But . . . hmmm . . . walking just isn't the same as running is it? Nope. Not at all. It's a fine substitute for the time being but I kinda can't wait for that postpartum day when I can lace up my running shoes, pull on two sports bras, squeeze into the largest running top that I have and hit the roads. It'll be awesome.

You know what else is awesome? Well, I'll tell you! I've got a giveaway for Brooks gear going on over here. Check it out!

Enjoy the rest of the day, everyone! Thanks for stopping by.

Only a few more weeks and then you will have that baby and be counting the days until you can run again!!

Doing just about anything at 38 weeks pregnant qualifies you as a SUPER HERO!

You might be wanting to run, but I am super jealous of the nap you plan on taking!

walking is nothing like running, but at least you can still get out and move it!

You are the Happy Runner then...for now. =) As long as you're happy and still getting your exercise for you and your baby. =)

Walking..running...as long as you are getting exercise it doesn't matter :). I would however trade your "two sports bras" for one Enell sports bra found here: www.onesweetone.com This bra works to eliminate any motion while doing your favotite exercises.
