The biggest thing we haven't done is figure out a name. We have a few months left, but it feels funny to not even have it narrowed down. We found out we were having a girl on November 28, and we then we moved. Then it was Christmas, then New Year's, then school started back and the bambino transitioned to a new classroom, and now all of the sudden it's the second half of February and Alfie has no real name.
In running news, I'm still at it! I ran Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, plus an extra walk Saturday with the bambino. Last week's mileage was 12 miles (13 with the walk), and I am very proud of that. 30 weeks is when I stopped running with my son, and I don't feel like stopping at all.
Here's what I wrote at this point last time around:
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2008
In fact, I ran tonight after our church's Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner. I did 3 miles in 33:45 and then walked to 40:00. Sure, it's not fast, but it's a good workout at this point, and I was smiling almost the whole time. And not just because I was watching the first half of the Downton Abbey finale. What a great way to work off the pancakes!
Speaking of pancakes, my diet seems to be doing a great job of managing the gestational diabetes. I have the nutrition class tomorrow after school, but just monitoring my blood sugar has made me feel a lot better. Exercising at night seems to control my blood sugar first thing in the morning, which is important.
That's what it's like around here right now! I've gotten used to GD, I'm still running, and we need to pick a name for baby Alfie. I've also been thinking a lot about this summer and getting back into running running, as well as Fall and Spring racing plans. More about that later...
