Unlike my last “training log”, I actually have SOME fitness activity to post for the last 2 weeks! Still nothing crazy(once a week isn’t exactly breaking my running bank), mixed in with lots of random life things like working and home projects.
I’m admittedly not of the breed that I currently feel OMG Badass getting a run in while pregnant yet. In fact, it’s pretty uncomfortable to start and doesn’t always get better(but sometimes it does!). Adjusting my goals/mindset has been big, and learning to be okay with whatever does or doesn’t happen each time. Round ligament pain has been worse some days than others, but I bought a support belt that should help per recommendation from some friends. I’ll keep my posts updated with how that helps, or doesn’t in the coming weeks.
These 2 weeks included the week between Christmas and New Years, as well as some more home-reno stuff so I focused a bit more on those things than anything else. Now that we are past the busy season for life, I think it will be a bit easier to find motivation as we move along.
Week of 12/26-1/1 ( 17/18 weeks pregnant)
Monday: Day of Cleaning/Sanding/Painting Kitchen Cabinets. All the bending and reaching, basically yoga workout in disguise.
Tuesday: Probably on the couch.
Wednesday: Probably on the couch.
Thursday: Probably on the couch.
Friday: 2.1 mile run (20 minutes ‘mill) + 10 minutes upper body strength
Saturday: NYE! Big dinner and relaxing at home playing cards and watching College Football/Movies
Sunday: WOD: De-Christmasing the House
Totals: 2.1 miles run/10 minutes fitness-strength
Week of 1/2-1/8 ( 18/19 weeks pregnant)
Monday: Day of Purging/Cleaning. All the bending and reaching and throwing- I was going from 7AM till after 8PM without a nap. I was dead afterwards.
