Yesterday I met with my running ladies and we went for a run together! It was AWESOME! We haven’t been running together for almost a year! I didn’t run during my pregnancy and honestly, didn’t miss it too much. I think I was a little burned out and that break was great! I feel good and excited about running and working out again!
So yesterday my friends came over and we ran at my favorite trail right around the corner from my house. I did 4 miles and felt good the whole way. I’m not fast nor can I go super far, but I feel good and have fun!
It was a great day! The weather was just perfect, low 60s and sunny. The trail looked beautiful and we even saw some pretty flowers!
It was a perfect come back to running and I’m so thankful that I already feel so good – 7 weeks postpartum. I had a very speedy delivery and I believe this helped me to recover faster as well. 3 weeks postpartum I started walking and 2 weeks later I incorporated some running. Last week we joined the gym and I was able to run 2 miles. Yesterday I ran 4 miles for the first time since Zoe was born and I felt great!
My goal is to run a half marathon in the fall, but training doesn’t really start until July. So for May and June I want to have fun with my work outs, try new classes at the gym and work on toning and strengthening my overall body. My goal is to work out 5x a week for at least 30 min. Workouts can be a class at the gym, running or just a walk with the stroller. I’m excited and look forward to get moving again. Last week I did a kick booty class (kick boxing for women). It was awesome, I was sore for days!
My plan for the upcoming week:
Monday: 30 min run + 30 min Zumba toning class
Tuesday: 3 mile walk with stroller
Wednesday: 3 mile run/walk with stroller
Thursday: kick booty class
Friday: run on the treadmill
Saturday and Sunday: off – mother’s day celebration
I’m enjoying being a stay at home mom and Zoe and I are on the go all the time. We have so much fun!
What’s your plan for the week?
Are you enjoying the nice spring weather?
