Picked up trash on the highway for a squadron service project. 

Ran 6 miles with David on a tiny trail down by the lake.  Wish we could find a trail that is longer, it was nice to change the scenery.  I had to wiz about a zillion times on the side of the trail, thank you baby!

6 slow by myself.  Great running weather 60s. 

At the end of my run I passed some older men doing a group PT.  They asked me how far I had gone and I told them 6 miles.  Somehow being pregnant makes running that much more impressive because they seemed pretty impressed.  I snickered to myself.

The slowest and most difficult 5 miles of my life!  Holy smokes.

5 min warm up on 1% 

5 min @ 5% at 7.0

raise TM to 10% and bring the pace all the way down.  Step ups on the side of the TM... 20 on each leg

Back on TM.  5 min @ 7%

off TM.  20 one leg squats on each leg

Back on TM... 3 min @ 8%, 2 min @ 10%, 5 min @5% 

On the side of the TM do 30 calf raises each leg.

5 min @ 5%

one leg jumps 30x each leg

5 min @ 5% 

cool down on 2%

I climbed 1221 ft on the TM in 5 miles.  Seesh, that burned!! LOVED this workout and I did it with Hilary. She had a love/hate relationship with it.

Super slow run with hub around the base... 8:55 AP

I am getting really slow and heavy.  

Late that day we went to Kickapoo Caverns, one of the coolest places I have been in Texas. It was a guided hard hat tour of a cavern that is not paved or lit... It was fun to explore.

6 on the TM with a 7:52 AP!!! I can go somewhat fast (on the TM).  Everyone seems to stare at the pregnant lady as she runs on a 9.5.... I like to make people get worried about me.  ;)  I am totally fine...

Next week I will be 6 months.

I ran 7 miles at an 8:24 AP!!!! flippin excited about my pace, that has not happened for a LONG time.  It was also 75 out when I ran, so it was really warm.

My mile splits were even throughout my race. :)
