I woke up this morning thinking it was Sunday since Chris was off yesterday but low and behold it’s only Saturday. WEE!!!! Two more days of family time = a very happy mama! Today I am also making my return to my yoga studio here in town. Ever since starting to feel better, we have either been out of town or had prior Saturday plans so I wasn’t able to make my favorite yoga class. Not any more. Mat … I am coming for you!
Since I am going to be 21 weeks pregnant tomorrow, it’s time to recount my workouts for the week. After all the discussion on a Fit Pregnancy this week I felt more motivated than ever to get out there and kick my booty. I am listening to my body and doing what feels good to me. I was just talking to Chris last night about wondering how much longer I am going to be able to maintain this frequency and intensity and I am excited to see how my journey continues to go.
This week was also Week 5 of Best Body Bootcamp and the strength circuits focused on tri-sets. Also, have you ever done a one-legged wall sit with leg extension? I hadn’t and holy cow my quads were burning! Try it sometime.
MONDAY: 2 mile run + 0.25 mile cool-down + BBB Workout A
TUESDAY: 2.5 mile stroller run + abs
WEDNESDAY: 2 mile run + 0.25 mile cool-day + BBB Workout B
THURSDAY: 4.25 mile run + abs
FRIDAY: 2 mile run + 0.5 mile incline walking + CrossFit Circuit
CrossFit Circuit: 3 RFT
5 Power Cleans
5 Push Press
**Note: Totally realized I wore my For Two Fitness tank twice this week without realizing it. OOPS. Haha.
Overall I am more than satisfied with this week. I shocked myself with my run on Thursday – I averaged 10:35/mile and felt awesome. On Friday I did the 2 miles in under 20 minutes which was a huge accomplishment for me right now. I am proud of the work that I am putting it but also thankful that my body is allowing me to do the things that I love. This time last pregnancy I wasn’t running any more so I am thankful to be logging miles still. I am taking things day by day and we will see what this next week brings 🙂
Hope you all have a great Saturday and are doing something fun. We are BBQing with friends tonight which is always a great time.
