Last night our yoga instructor (power Heidi) still wasn’t back from her surgery but it was a good class. I’m surprisingly sore today in my legs, usually it is my side abs, so that feels good. I was able to get in a nice 1 mile before the class started with an elliptical warmup.
Today I was tired driving from work to the gym. As I was getting out of my car I noticed I had a half of one of those Dove Promises milk chocolate hanging around so I was ecstatic to eat this. What did it say on the wrapper? Something like “go curl up on the couch.” That is definitely what I wanted to do!! I didn’t really have a goal mileage in mind, and I don’t really have one for this week. I think it will take some pressure off of myself and maybe I’ll enjoy it more and not try to push it. So I got in 3 miles and took a mini break and made it through another 2.7. I wanted to make it to 6 when I was close and half way through was even thinking 7, but a side stitch wasn’t allowing that. In between I did some biking to see if it would go away. It didn’t. While I was running, I was looking forward to my shower with my DOVE soap! I was picturing the smell of the soap and lathering up, oh mama! (something is wrong with me, I’m fantasizing about soap). I should maybe bring soap to work so that when I go to the bathroom 27 times I can have an even better experience when I wash my hands.
The little peanut has been doing karate moves, kickboxing and flips (preparing to be a swimmer hopefully) all day long today and yesterday. I think all the movement is making me tired!! On Monday will be 7 months!
