M- 30 min elliptical/stairs and flow yoga class + 100 air or 4# squats
T- 4 mi run
W- power flow yoga + 30 min bike
Th- 50 min stationary bike + weights
F- 30 anything cardio! plus 100 squats
Sa- 6 mi run
Su- yoga for runners
Good/not so good: Again, still so glad to be able to get in my 6mi runs, albeit at a much slower pace, which is kind of boring now ("are we there yet" on constant loop in my head).
Not so hot: Annoyed at myself for not doing enough squats, since they are supposed to help prevent tearing during labor. Really need to make them happen! Hoping that writing down my intentions here will help make them happen. Cankles. Enough said. I'm in Houston and it is like a SWAMP here.
Looking forward to: Having my mom in town for our baby shower this weekend!
Re: Fitness Check-in (June 2-8)
M - ran 3 miles today (indoors)
Tu - Working all day :-(
W - cross fit
Th - Working again :-(
F - cross fit (or may skip for a run)
I ran a 3.5 mile road race on Thursday that went really well. I actually beat my time last year by a little over a minute...which is shocking and I still don't understand how that happened!
I officially got the go-ahead at the gym to run outside. I asked today (because I'm sick of running on the treadmill) if they would be able to watch ds#2 while I run outside. They said as long as I leave my phone number with them, they don't have a problem with it! Sweet! Wish I had asked sooner!
~after 34 cycles we finally got our 2nd little bundle of joy~
My IF blog
Hi Everyone, Happy June!
So I must confess that last week did not go quite as planned. I still got in 4 days of great workouts, but I missed one day and they were not on the days I said I would work out. haha Oh well I was more motivated knowing I would be posting here.
M - 45 minute walk (planned to run and lift at the gym but since I left my sports bra at home there was no way I was attempting that. My boobs are now huge and pop out of my bras just standing there! So I walked home from the gym)
T - 30 min run and lifting (double checked I had everything!)
W - 40 min elliptical and prenatal yoga video
Th - 30 min run and lifting
F - rest
S - 40 min run and yoga
S - rest (if cleaning the house counts as rest)
Feeling good for the most part. My eating for the most part is much cleaner than it was a few weeks ago and so I'm feeling healthier.
Not so good is aches and pains. My lower back and shoulders are starting to hurt. I have a lot of knots in my shoulder. Plus my right hip hurts and wakes me up when I'm sleeping on my right side. That's about it though.
Looking forward to.....getting my workouts in? haha.....my life is so not exciting right now.
Mon- I did Bootcamp for an hr and ran 5.5 miles, with DS in the stroller.
Tues- ran 5.5 miles, pushing DS in the running stroller.
Weds- plan is Bootcamp + run
Fri- Bootcamp + run
Sat- long run, 10-11 miles
I'm 36 weeks today, and still feeling great! I've been maintaining 40 miles/week of running and 3 Bootcamp workouts.
The good- I feel great! DS moved into his new bedroom and big boy bed with no problems, and is doing good with potty training.
The not so good- I had protein in my urine at my 36-week appt today, but no other signs of pre-e. OB had me do bloodwork to make sure everything is ok. I'm also down a couple of lbs, and nervous about the baby's size. I have an u/s on Mon to check baby. This warmer weather is rough on my GI system (sorry, TMI)- which I think is the reason for wt loss. The OB wasn't concerned though, even though I stopped gaining/started losing at 30 weeks.
To Do- baby's nursery. Crib is still set up, just have to move mattress up.
Mommy to R (8.23.11) and K (6.21.14).
Keeping up at 25 mpw runningWhat's feeling good / not so good?
Good --- mentally knowing that I'm still keeping on, even though I'm getting MUCH slower and need to take more frequent walk breaks
Not so good --- the pressure on my bladder is sometimes horrible What are you looking forward to this week?Fun weekend ahead --- neighbor's baby shower, 4 year old birthday party, dinner with family, 5K
