Hallelujah. It’s March. Spring is 18 days away. There is HOPE for an outside running routine that lasts for more than one day and doesn’t involve ICE, SNOW, FROZEN EYELASHES…
So, I’m about 22 weeks along and, if you happened to read my post this week about running in the 2nd trimester, well, I’m not doing all that much running. I’m hanging in there though and exercising as much as I feel comfortable. Here’s what I put in the books this week.
Sunday 2.23- Rest day-spent the day with my sisters up in Hudson, Ohio, going through my oldest sister’s stash of baby ‘stuff’ that she doesn’t need anymore! I gained a bunch of cute OSU/Browns/Buckeye onesies, a compilation of Dr. Brown bottles, a bouncy chair, and an Ameda ‘Purely Yours Ultra’ breast pump (which needs a replacement motor, if you happen to come across one…). I’m lucky to have such great sisters, eh?
Monday 2.24– 2 mile run and light lifting
Tuesday 2.25 – 3 mile run/walk/run and light lifting
Wednesday 2.26 – 2 mile run and light lifting
Thursday 2.27– 3 mile run/walk/run and 40 minutes of prenatal yoga
Friday 2.28 – 2 mile run and light lifting
Saturday 3.1 – 2 mile run and a walk with my hubs and Otto in the (45!!!!) degrees
Sunday 3.2 – 3 miles run/walk/run/walk
17 whole miles! :) Hey, it’s enough for me right now.
As you can see, I’m trying to incorporate some light lifting most days (gotta work on my upper arm strength to be able to hoist this babe!) and starting to do running/walking routines, which seem to be cooperating better with my bladder issues related to pregnancy.
