Back to Running / Advice Given-Advice Needed

Wow, I am SLOW!

Today I ran 3.1 miles on the treadmill at 41 minutes. In a race, I did it in 37 minutes, and when I was preggers with Annabeth I ran it in 41 minutes in a race.

Here are tips:

  1. Just warm up for 1 minutes on the treadmill or just start off running. In a race, this is how it will be.
  2. Do not walk longer than 2 minutes, and run at least 2 minutes at a time.
  3. For the first mile, I try to run for 5 to 7 minutes straight, walk 1 or 2 minutes and then finish till I get to a mile. When running the race, have timer going somehow.
What advice to you have for making your time faster? Hoping to run a race at the end of the month.

Annabeth's 4 Month Stats

Weight: 17 pounds, 4 ozs, 95%
Height: 25 inches, 90%

Dear sweet Annabeth (Joycie, Big Baby Buddha),

     You are our first 90 percentile baby! At four months, you looked like a 6 month old. You are now 5 months old and wearing 9 month old clothing which works out perfectly for mommy because you and your sister were 3 months difference in size and she was always in the 50 something percentile. You will not take a pacifier unfortunately like your brother and sister. You get very mad because it is not the bottle. I secretly like having a non paci baby because I get to see all your facial expressions all throughout the day. Sadly, you have been congested the majority of your life. Probably because your brother or sister is always in your face, loving you. HOWEVER, we are so so thankful that none of these episodes have turned into ear infections, which is a miracle. Your crib is in mommy and daddy's room against the other part of the room, it is so much easier for us. You have been sleeping till 7 am, which makes mommy and daddy so happy. Oh yeah and you were crawling a little at 4 MONTHS! Wow, you go girl. You are very active and have been trying to hold your head up on your own since you were born. You can sit up by yourself when you lean forward now at 5 months. We love you so much, but you have grown up so fast on us. You are so long it is hard to cuddle close with you and you definitely make mama sweat a lot carrying you around...haha. You have made our lives lots busier but not overwhelming like going from one babies to two.
     When you smile you have two dimples which is amazing (unlike your siblings at this age), and your hair has always had a blonde root which is so cute. You are so funny, and have the best laugh. I love babies, and you have made our life so much more joyful. You are so worth it.
I love you with Christ's love that cannot be measured.
