|oh look, dead battery|
Rocky is doing pretty good. Growing. Although I am concerned he is a little backed up. I also learned yesterday that I should also be burping him.
He once more has not pooped in two days. His belly is getting HUGE. I put a little oil in his formula. Supposedly that is supposed to help after two or three feedings. I am getting really tired of rubbing his butt with a warm wash cloth and hoping he poops. I am glad human babies are able to do that all on their own.
I am trying to decide if I should enter a 10k this coming weekend, a 5 mile race next weekend or just do both. :) I did them both last year. Of course last year I also did not have Hood to Coast the weekend after the 5 mile race.
I am leaning towards the 10k and just using it as a gauge to see where I am at and how my body is feeling post marathon. I don't expect to set a personal best or anything since I have done ZERO speed work since June and have only really done easy runs since the marathon on July 8th. That marathon took a lot out of me.
I feel like I am still processing a lot of feelings about my first marathon. I got up this morning at 6 to watch the Olympic marathon only to discover it had started at 4 am here. I did get to see the end of it anyway. I have to admit I got all teary as I watched each person come across the finish line. Especailly Shalane and Kara.
Having finally run a marathon, I felt like I could really empathize with them on how hard they had worked to get there. Knowing that what you have done is so amazing and so great, but you still fell a little short of where you really envisioned you could be and what you could do if it all came together.
And finally, I have a big box of peaches I am going to can and make some peach jam out of hopefully tomorrow. I was hoping to do it today, but I think they need to ripen a little more first. Love peaches!
Did you watch the Olympic Marathon this morning? If you did, did you get a little teary also?
