6:45 AM: Weight Training – COMPLETED
Pedro took the late night shift (which happened to be 12 and 2:15. Ever since the doctor’s appointment on Wednesday her sleep schedule has been off and on) and I took the “anytime after 3:30 on” shift. Well, that’s always my shift. Fortunately, since she went down at 2:45, Lili didn’t wake up until 5:45. I changed her wet dipe (what we call a diaper in the house) and fed her. She was going in and out of her sleep, but finally she went down. I debated on where to put her down, and the playpen was my best option.
Hands up position means I’m good to go.
So, I pulled out my weight training book and started my workout.
Halfway through my workout, my bumblebee started to cry.
She wanted to workout with mommy. I mean, we did work out for almost 10-months together. She loved the whirlpool.
I was able to ditch the free weights and use my own Lili weight. All jokes aside, I put her down in the rocker and finished my workout while giving her peek-a-boo smiles and faces.
Oh, that’s right. I never posted my progress pictures. I’m 9-weeks post pregnant and still soft in the middle. I’m very motivated though, so not to worry. Just 2-lbs to get to pre-pregnant weight and an extra 5 to my racing weight.
I don’t think there’s really much of a difference from the last few weeks. But I’m not going to complain.
Running/Racing News: Nothing much going. I’m debating on running a 25k on October 2nd. My sister is running this race as well Scarlett. She will be running her first kids race. How much fun is that going to be? If I decide to run this race, I might have to use a different half training to get higher miles in. I’m just not sure how smart that would be for someone just getting back into running. I need to be smart about this and not get injured. On the other hand, I did run throughout my pregnancy.
Decisions, decisions… Do you think it’s too fast for me to do a 25k?
Okay, I’m ready to get out of work. It’s one hell of a week between an earthquake and now a hurricane?!? Of course everyone in NJ thinks, “hurricane” — and now nobody has flashlights. It’s like during the winter, when there’s a predicted snowstorm and all the shovels are out. Really? Are these shovels disposable shovels?
