What a nice day outside!! A little cold but nice! I managed to run 2.2 miles on the treadmill at an easy pace and went outside to do the 0.8 to make 3 miles! I wanted to see what my natural pace might be without using the treadmill to gauge it. I ran at about 10:40-11 min mile pace both inside and outside. I doubled bra-ed it - these mamas are huge! We put little Nick in his bouncer to see if he'd fall asleep/stay asleep with the treadmill noise and he did! I could run forever if I can look over and see him laying there the whole time!
I feel GREAT. I just looked at myself and realized I look exhausted but I don't feel exhausted.
I am wondering what I need to be careful of (besides injury) by starting to run. Obviously I'm taking it easy, but I'm not exactly sure what damage I could do by running too quickly. My body feels fine and I'm just listening to it like my doctor (I may profess my love to him soon) said.
I've been eating pretty much whatever I can grab so far. I'm about 5 pounds from my starting weight so in 9 days I dropped give or take 16 pounds. Have yet to take a picture of my jelly like tummy, I plan to get it back in shape - crunches and ab work - I think that I can start doing that!
I've been blogging more on my baby blog because the little peanut has taken over as my new passion. Soon I'll balance everything out but for now he is much more exciting and fun than running! Little runner legs:
If anyone is blog talented, I can't figure out why I have tons more options when I post (fonts, pictures come up as pictures not code, etc) on this blog but not on my baby blog. Help me out if ya know!
And I just have to add bc I can't vent too much on my other blog that I am so tired of people visiting. I just want time to spend with our new family before I have a breakdown when Bill goes back to work for good on Tuesday!
