No goal

Well, I haven't run since Sunday. I knew not having a looming goal would do that to me. Either I need to find a 5k in a month or so (one where I won't be dead last...so, a big 5k), or figure out some other way to motivate. There's no good reason I haven't run...the 10k was good, I felt good, I still feel good...I just don't have a goal. I did go to the pool and run in the water yesterday. In fact I've worked out to some extent every day this week, but I feel like the intensity is waning. For instance, I haven't lifted at all in over a week. Today is supposed to be 2 miles on the treadmill and arms...I'll get to the gym soon.

I'm posting this link to a cool pregnant-running story one of my also pregnant blog readers is in...for the few of you who read this who don't also follow her blog, it's fun and inspiring!

I know what you mean about not having goals. My goal at this point is to just retain enough fitness so that after the baby is born I won't have to completely start over from scratch. There is a long ocean swim race here in mid-December and I have these crazy thoughts that maybe I could do it, but that's all going to depend on when baby decides to come out and whether or not I have to have a c/s... late baby or c/s = no race for sure. Early baby and easy natural delivery = race time!! :) Guess which one I'm hoping for? I need a goal.

I guess your goal could just be to maintain your fitness, but you are already doing that. Maybe have a mileage goal each week? That is kind of what keeps me going!!
