Mother's Day Running

Baby H. contemplating Mother's Day 2011 gift.
Waking up on Sunday morning, I remember where I was two years ago on Mother's day. It was May 9 and I was just a few short days away from my due date (May 12). But apparently a due date is just a rough (very rough) estimate of when your little one will appear since Baby H. didn't deem to be born for 15 more days. Maybe if I had gone for a six mile run on Mother's Day 2010, I wouldn't have had to suffer those last two weeks.

Like all Mother's Day's ought to be, the weather was perfect. After a nice brunch with my mother and Mr. H.'s mother, we put Baby H. down for a nap and headed out. Like most of my outside runs lately, I'm not sure how I'm going to complete the mileage, or how quickly I'll be doing it, so I just go and hope for the best. My best was a time just over 1 hour (by 7 seconds), so right where I like to be for a "leisurely" run. I did manage to get almost all my runs in this week, but skipped Saturday because it seemed like a good day to take a rest. So I did some yoga instead. Even though the last mile of yesterday's run way my quickest of the run, it was the most painful because I'm having an issue with my right foot. I'm going to switch to my old running shoes to see if that solves the problem, and if not, I guess it's in to the doctor or chiropractor or something to see what's going on. I'm pretty sure I'm due for at least a massage.
