It’s pretty common to start the year with a lot of goals and resolutions. Most of them being health related. That was sort of my plan also. When school started I would go on with my training plan and continue to work on my body. And that changed less than a week ago when I found out I am pregnant. This is shocking news. Not in a bad way but after 4 years of trying I was about to give hope. And then it happened. Now my health related goals have another end in mind. The hunger that comes with pregnancy is horrible. It seems that every day when my husband gets home I am eating. I weigh the same I did when I got pregnant with my daughter 6 years ago and I only gained 21 lbs throughout the pregnancy. Will I be able to do the same this time? I already met with a nutritionist so we can work on a plan. And then there’s the running… Will I be a pregnant runner? I hope I can, at least for a while. A lot of emotions are in my head. A lot of questions. But one thing I know, 2012 will be amazing!
I confess: I’m taking a break from running. Maybe for a month or two? I wasn’t really feeling my new training schedule… Honestly I wasn’t in the mood for running. So hopefully when I come back to it (because I will) I can enjoy it again. In the meantime I am doing Insanity. I missed Shaun T :)
3 miles scheduled and done for today. I also added some pushups and triceps dips. By the way, I have a love/hate relationship with my treadmill. It’s convenient to have it, but the time and distances seem to take much longer while on it.
After playing Kinect these past few days it becomes obvious that I don’t do any strength/resistance training. I mean, of course I knew that. But when you’re sore the day after playing, it becomes even more evident!
Other than that, I finally chose a new training plan to follow. And it starts today. More running for me even though I am really training for any big race but I feel it’s the best way to follow thru and run regularly. There’s a little bit of speed training also, which I’ve never done before. Here’s to a healthy December!
A couple of months back I tried doing Insanity and I really liked it (although I didn’t finish it). I was thinking about starting it again, even if only part time. I still want to be able to run and I wonder how to do both. Any ideas?
It’s almost time… In 24 hours I will be crossing the finish line, or very close to it (hopefully!). But first, hubby arrives today after a 7 day business trip. I miss him like crazy!
Oh my gosh! Only 4 days until the half marathon. I’m happy to report that I lost some weight and am now maintaining it which, is awesome! Kinda scared to ruin it with too many carbs in the next days, but will focus on the task at hand: nutrition prior to the race. I have a comfortable run scheduled for tomorrow, and then some resting. Yay!
It’s 10 days until my first ever half marathon and I guess I am ready. When I signed up I had about 3 months to train, so it wasn’t a lot of time either. I chose a training plan that was very gradual and that made me comfortable. At some point things got a bit mixed up…it’s called life. But overall I was doing pretty well. And now, that I am closer to the day, I don’t feel as motivated or pumped. And it sucks! I enjoyed having this strange, positive energy in me that made me stick with my training plan for this long. Where did it go?
Where’s the joy in my runs? It feels like this happens in everything I set out to do. But I thought this time was different. Better go to sleep. Tomorrow’s a new day.
