Seven Things Sunday

Miles today: rest
Miles yesterday: 4.01 miles
Miles Thursday: 1.7 miles
Miles Wednesday: 1.43 miles
Miles in 2014: 660.45 miles

#1: I took a 4 hour nap today. Yep. I also went to bed at about 10 PM last night. So tired and unmotivated to get off the couch or out of bed. Hello third trimester.

#2: The Truth about Cheerios. For the past few months, I have wanted cereal. Lots of cereal. Mostly raisin bran and oatmeal squares. The past two weeks honey nut cheerios has been the cereal of choice. It is delicious. BUT. I am going to have to consider it not real food. Tastes great, except that I can eat a huge bowl and 20 minutes later be hungry again. How does that happen? I had to quit eating it for breakfast because by 9:15 AM I am ravenously hungry, which is good for no one. 

#3: Runner Problems: Getting the perfect pedicure to have two toenails fall off 3 days later... Are my feet getting bigger?!

#4: This faux-tuna vegan salad. Despite the ultimate day of lazy, I got up long enough to make it for a late lunch. Totally worth it. Especially since my husband was slaving away putting together IKEA furniture all day while I slept. He didn't even complain that it was all healthy like.

#5: Thursday morning's run was so hot and miserable that I started considering holding off on running for the rest of the pregnancy. It was humid and over 80 degrees at 5:45. Plus for the past few days I was just plain uncomfortable running. Not sure if it was the baby's position or what, but there was very little enjoyment that morning. I said I would take a break if I was uncomfortable. Luckily Saturday morning proved my doubts wrong, and I had a great 4 mile run (with a couple walk breaks of course). I am taking it very easy and think the long runs are going to have to wait until after baby girl gets here. Expect more long walks and tennis in the near future...

#6: Puppy pics. I don't even know why we have a second dog bed. They like to share and it is pretty much the cutest thing ever.

#7: Huge, huge good luck and good mojo going to our friend Eric Spencer, who will be running the Badwater Ultramarathon starting tomorrow. He helped pace last year (see his guest posts here, here, and here) and is preparing to kick even more ass tomorrow. So excited for him and to follow along!
