Slow, Fat, Mommy Runner

In college I had some really close girl friends. We'd always work out and eat right and occasionally pig out together. It was fun.

One time, we were walking around campus for a work out, when suddenly two of my friends (you know who you are ;}) that were both thin and fit decide it was time to RUN. They just took off and were like, "c'mon Ad let's go!" I was NEVER a runner. I mean never. I was the one that failed PE because I refused to make myself look like fool while trying but never meeting the 10 min mile mark. Oh if I could only go back in time.

I was the one that QUIT Karate when I was 8 or 9 right before my black belt test because I was so scared to run the 3 miles for the test. Whenever we would run in Karate I would day dream about pretending to pass out right on the track from an Asthma attack. "That'll show 'em!",  I use to think.

When my friends took off running, I started jogging, trying to keep up, what else was I suppose to do? That's when they really got going. Now I was at least 50 yards behind them. Right as we were passing by all the guys on the basketball team, one of the girls shouts back at me, "YOU can do it Adrienne!!! Let's go!!!" as I am literally about to fall over and die from lack of oxygen.  All the guys looked at me and just stared as I huffed and puffed past them.  M O R T I F I E D.

I ran 7 miles last night.  Me. The overweight, slow, fat, mommy of 3 little boys.  I know I've ran 7 miles before. Remember, it use to be my favorite mileage? But obviously I got a little out of shape while pregnant with Reece, so this is just as exciting as the first time.

I took Reece with me. Bad idea. We were attacked by millions of mosquito around mile 5.5. I had Reece totally covered with blankets...my legs look like a teenage boys face now. Not cool. 

Running as a mommy can be quit an adventure. Like when I ran over Cody with the jogging stroller. Or when Shane somersaulted into dog poop.  Ahhh, memories.

The half marathon is in 3 weeks.  I am barley half way there! My last half marathon I only trained up to 10 miles, and oh boy I was in so much pain after the 13.1.  I also had such bad runners tummy, which I got a little last night too. Runner's tummy is the WORST. Makes me not want to run.
My mom is coming for Cody's birthday party {Cody will be 3 tomorrow!!}. She is coming on Thursday so I plan to leave all the boys with her and hopefully run 8.5 miles.  Then next week do 10, and the week after that do 11, then taper.  I want to kick myself for getting behind on training.

I thought I'd start sharing what I am eating with you.  Here is yesterday's day.

1/2 C %1 milk 1 point+
1/4 C Sugar Free Hazelnut creamer w coffee 2 Points+ Total: 10 P+

20 Cheddar Sun Chips 5 Points+
Homemade pineapple, apple, lemon, orange fruit juice 0 Points+ Total: 9 P+

Snack: 1 cup whole wheat pasta plain for fuel 4 Points+

Dinner: 1 cup whole wheat pasta, lean ground turkey w spaghetti sauce 7 Points+

Oh my - you are such a multi tasker! LOL. And Adrienne, you are none of those things you mentioned in your title. Except for the Mommy part. :-) You are still a work in progress - we all are.

Kimberlynn said...

I can tell you from my own experience that there's nothing easy about running. The fact that you can get out there, with baby in tow, and do something like that is very impressive!

You go girl!!!

Good for you Adrienne. Keep up your training and you will be suprised at how far you can advance your fitness in just 3 weeks. Walk or run, you will get 13.1 done.

PS - I'm thinking of doing another Tri this year... maybe the See Jane Tri in Sept. Would you be interested?
