7 down...2 to go - for real this time

Yesterday Team IronBaby completed the I Love the Tavern sprint triathlon.
IronGreg did the swim and the bike and I headed off for the run - we were in 2nd place.
Then at mile 1....we fell to 4th.
Then we fell to 7 out of 9. : )

Everyday I'm shuf-fa-ling.

Picture to come.

The run itself wasn't awful. My legs went numb, but that's to be expected.
I coughed throughout it (I am sick) and one time I may or may not have peed on myself.
I had to pee the entire time since someone felt the need to sit right on my bladder and one time I even sat in the grass to pee, but had stage fright, so IronGreg (who was shuffling with me) helped me back up.
I think I did half the run while holding my belly.

Afterwards, I spent the day with an ice pack on my back because my low back hurt so bad and I was o the couch with cramps. Good times. Good times.

Today at my regularly scheduled appointment I got an antibiotic for my cold. I try to avoid taking anything knowing whatever I take the baby gets. But who knew that a nasty cough is annoying for the baby. No wonder she has been grumpy lately.

I also found out there will be no more running. I am still allowed to walk - but need a belly support belt.
So here's hoping I can walk two more 5k's to complete my challenge.

Learning to Count

Yesterday I realized that I have only done SIX races, not seven.
So for my "9 Month 9 Race Challenge" I have three more to go.

So far:
Bear Creek 10 miler - 4 weeks
Virginia is for Lovers 14k - 14 weeks
Shamrock Half Marathon - 19 weeks
Monument Avenue 10k - 21 weeks
CASA Superhero 5k - 24 weeks
Stratford Hills 10k - 29 weeks

Still to go:
Tavern Tri (run leg 5k) - 32 weeks
Cul-de-sac 5k series - 34, 35, and 36 weeks.

We'll see if I do the 5k at 36 weeks...

7 down..2 to go

A few weeks ago I finished race #7 in my challenge - the Stratford Hills 10k.
My run is more of a shuffle, but with some awesome girls by my side, we did it and had a TON of fun in the process.

Race #7 at 29 weeks
