26 Weeks Pregnant

Wednesday was my scheduled long run (8 miles); however, my appointment with the dentist lasted longer than I'd planned (doesn't it always?) and I only managed to get in 5 miles. I figured I could make it up on Thursday until I woke up with a stuffy nose and cough. Normally (i.e., not pregnant) I would have completed my long run but I've found that when my body is dealing with an illness I am more susceptible to injury and considering that my body is currently busy growing a baby, I decided not to give it any more to do, even though my mind was screaming at me to just 'run through it.'
I resigned myself to not getting a long run in this week and ran an easy 5 miles on Thursday. I didn't get much sleep that night and woke up Friday feeling wiped out so I did yoga but didn't run again until Saturday.
