I can’t believe I have less than six weeks to go until this baby is here! Here are some baby bump pictures.
Here are my workouts for week 34:
Monday: 3.25 miles – Run/walk on the treadmill. Walked 5 minutes, ran ~ 7 minutes (to complete the mile) for 3 miles, then walked .25 miles to cooldown. Really tough getting out of bed this morning but told myself that I always feel better after a workout
Wednesday: 3.25 miles – Repeat of Mondays workout. Walk 5 mins, Run 7 minutes for 3.25 miles. Thankful I can run/walk on the treadmill to keep me out of this heat during my last few weeks of pregnancy.
Thursday: 3.5 mile walk around the lakes. Walked a little after 9 am and it was super hot!
Saturday: 3 mile walk with little Miss
Sunday: 2 mile walk. Walked/ran .5 mile with little Miss. We started this out as an afternoon walk but she wanted to run most of the time. After she burned off some energy, I walked a little more on my own.
Total: 15 miles
I wanted to do some more run/walking but woke up Friday morning with a terrible cold so I slept in on the weekend. By the time I was up my husband had work to do and it was too hot to run with the stroller outside, so I just got some nice walks in. It was around this stage in my pregnancy last time that I was put on bedrest and I had not done any running at all after my first trimester and hardly any walking (just yoga) so I’m grateful for any extra fitness I get in during these last few weeks.
I’ve done some reading on postpartum running but any thoughts on returning to running post-baby? For my first, I waited the full six weeks but if you have any experiences on how long you waited, please share!
I was reading over some of my run entries from daily mile post-baby and it will be interesting to see how I can find time to run with two kids. I’m thankful to have a treadmill which I plan to use during nap-time but just hope to keep up this blog to stay motivated to run post-baby!
