Last week was a GREAT week for me. I felt very active walking 4 days and running 2 days. The weather here has been less than ideal with freezing fog and temps in the 20’s but I have not let it totally stop me.
I feel like I am starting to get my energy back but in limited increments. I read the Exercise section of “What to Expect When Expecting” last night and I wish I had it in front of me. Some of the facts are pretty amazing, like the more active a mom is while pregnant could have a direct correlation to how active her child will be. Very cool stuff!
Right now I am struggling with comparing myself to others, but I know better!! I work full time, and have 2 kiddos… thankfully I have an amazing partner who reminds me every day that I am doing great.
Run #1= The trail is between my office and home. Muscle Man picked up LS#1 at school and we met at the trailhead after work for a run. The sun was out but it was still pretty chilly, thankfully the boys had a blanket and their wind cover. We both were pretty low energy but we pushed on to finish with a solid 4 mile run.
Run #2= Saturday at 10am we set out, the parking lot at the trail was EMPTY. The freezing fog kept the fair-weather folks at home. We did not have a set distance in mind but quickly realized that anything beyond 3 miles was not smart. We finished with a 5K and raced home to a warm shower.
