6 miles under 10 min mile pace, yaahoooo! I had a good treadmill run today, averaging 9:39 mm – it felt good, I was pressed for time or probably would have done 2 more miles. It felt so good to be in the 6’s of speed!
I’m still counting down the days until the BOB gets here – then the weather better warm up and I’ll be running outside with the little guy!
I have no regrets about running throughout the pregnancy – in fact, I completely would recommend it to ANY runner out there ! Probably didn’t need those long runs but they kept my sanity and kept me going really!
I ran on Friday and it felt like I was still pregnant – I did 2 split up runs because everytime I got on the treadmill for an extended period, Nick woke up and would start to cry. I wasn’t timing it right. I had to walk often and something wasn’t sitting well in my stomach. So, today’s run was very exciting. I was kind of feeling like I didn’t want to run when I woke up.
Yesterday I did some lifting and the elliptical. I’m looking forward to getting back in the pool in a couple of weeks and considering switching my gym membership to the Y near my parents house so that they can watch him and we can hit the gym together. Also they have a pool there instead of having to pay extra for masters near work.
Haven’t improved my eating much – we’ve been living on spinach balls – Bill’s mom’s recipe so I’m getting in the spinach!
I’m really cranky/bitchy around adults that think they need to tell me when he needs to eat or ask “should he be laying like that?” Had it already. I’ve been really mean to my mom, and feel badly about it, but I wish people would just listen to what we need right now and not overdo it!
Scale is still reading 136.0. The thing is NEVER consistent but my weight has been consistent all week long! I wonder if you hit a plateau and I’m stuck there now and soon as I up the intensity of the workouts, I will lose more weight. No weight control needed for now, but would be nice if some more pounds could come off. By my appointment with Dr McDreamy 6 weeks postpartum, I’d like to be back to my starting weight – or less!
