So I went to the doctor last week and she told me…

That I should ‘lay off the running’ after my marathon on 5-31-09. Because…
If you are one of those TMI people, you should stop reading now, k?
Since hubs and I stopped taking BCP in August, I had 2 regular cycles and then insanity. 45 days. 56 days. 35 days. The first time (of course) I was all, “Woo-hoo!” The second time, too. Because I’m a dummy. But after that I knew my body was joking with me.
When we stopped BCP, I knew we wouldn’t get pregnant right away. I hoped we wouldn’t. My target date was January 2010, because that seemed like enough time to a) lose 10 pounds b) live it up c) pay off a few bills d) save enough money to send baby to college e) squeeze in a few more vacations f) save the world. Whatever. We were ready to pack our bags, but not leave for the plane quite yet. I figured we would have at least a year of no-stress trying. Closet trying. Not really trying, just enjoying the possibility.
So up till now, the action steps have been: a) stop taking the pill, and b) add a prenatal vitamin. But now, I will reorder my life until some distant and unknown future date. My well-loved New Balance 769’s will stay in their shoe pocket. I’m only working part-time over the summer, but I won’t fill my time with the trail or the treadmill. I will walk, do you know how long it takes to get anywhere when you’re walking?
So my running is laid off until September. Or in September, possibly. And then Clomid.
