A Week Later

Last Wedensday night my dad had a heart attack. He's alive and out of the hospital, so that's good. My first impulse was to call up ye olde fertility clinic and get back to the meds. Weight loss be damned. But I resisted. I've sort of penciled in July as the time to restart treatment whatever my weight. Haven't really shared that with anyone, but that's where I am.
We adjusted our running schedule to Monday, Wednesday, Friday. I reserve the right to demand a weekend trip to a metropark. This Monday I either saw my RE or her doppelganger on the path. I don't know that she would recognize me and I wasn't wearing my glasses, so I didn't say anything.

Back Again

I've been getting acupuncture since January. We also started running 3 times a week as part of the couch to 5k program. I don't think we're hitting 3 miles a time yet. Well, J could easily, but I'm not there yet. We're done with the program and now just run 30 minutes each time. Last night we stopped at 21, because it was in the 80s and I was ready to drop over dead. I guess that's a danger of starting training in the dead of winter. Now anything above 60 degrees feels too hot when I'm running.Lots of pregnancies and such going on around as usual. I try not to get too hung up on any of them, but it's hard. I don't suffer any delusions that we'll be perfect parents, but . . .
