The kid didn't share my disappointment about the zoo, mostly because she was too busy being sick and having chills. The dirty dog blanket makes everything better:
|Mommy, fetch my juice and turn up the volume, mmmkay?|
|Inflatable pony photobomb!|
Even though Faith was a better today (but running a 100 degree fever, but happy about it), I kept her inside. Although it's been warm lately, today was really cold here in MD! The wind chill was 35 degrees, so the dog got shafted on getting any exercise. Luckily she seems to understand when the kid is sick, or at least she never bugs me on those days. Perhaps she just senses mortal danger for herself...
I considered taking today as a full rest day because I couldn't go out with the stroller, but that seemed silly since I actually didn't feel like dry heaving today. I was able to get a 10K done on the treadmill before Faith woke up screaming from her nap (something that only happens when she is sick). I wasn't able to do other things like eat lunch or shower during nap time, but running is more important. Also, I can shower and eat when she's awake, it's just much less relaxing that way.
I feel like a genius because I've realized that while I can't find maternity tech shirts, I can just buy a bigger size at a cheap place like Marshall's. This is a size large (I normally wear a small) and I'm hoping it will last for at least a few more months.

Yes, I am 12 weeks along and YES I'm sure there is just one in there, but NO I never get tired of that question. At least no one has tried to touch me yet. When I was pregnant with Faith, I had absolutely zero people try to touch my belly. I'm telling you, I have some serious bitch face.
Alyssa asked me an interesting question today and I thought it would be fun to hear everyone's answer:
What do you consider the line between acceptable daily mileage and a waste of time?
Some people would say "Any activity is better than none!" but I'm thinking more of scrapping a day and calling it a rest day because you won't have time to do the mileage you want. I think anything over 4 miles feels worthwhile (to me) because unless it's a race effort, 3 miles just doesn't seem worth getting sweaty and needing a shower.
What do you think?
