Yesterday, following Nancy's advice, I did a 15 minute jog warmup, then superset #1 of lifting. Hopped back on the treadmill for about 10 minutes, then superset #2. Then back on the treadmill for 10 minutes, a few abs and 5 more minutes running. The running miles were at a good pace, and it felt good. I ran out time at the end and would have liked to do more abs.
Wednesday before swimming = no coffee. It was a decent workout. Today I had coffee and it wasn't as good as Monday - somehow I was on FIRE on Monday, but it was still good. I think I'm just getting back into shape and I can work hard and go fast. I loved reading what everyone else does with coffee and experiences. My goal is going to be to try it out before shorter races and swimming whenever I have time.
I'm unsure of this thing though. The uncertainty comes from the brief. I feel like many of you have running skirts so I will ask you:
What about chafing? Do you have one? What has your experience been? Maybe the sports skirts might have been the way to go. Stay tuned - I'll let you know how it goes when it isn't 20 degrees out and I can wear it.. maybe in May... : ) If we all like them it will be cute if we ever do a race together and match. Now I just have to get a matching shirt. Or maybe white or black would do.
Kara turned 5 months this week - I can't believe how quickly that went. Around 4 months I think, I was able to lose all of the 'Kara' weight. Now I'm working on the 'Nick' weight that was still around after he was born and when I got pregnant w/ Kara. I feel I was about 2 lbs away around 4 months after Nick and then started gaining weight. I have to be careful not to overdo it, my biggest thing is NUTS and making nut balls (nuts + maple syrup + sometimes coconut oil). Such a yummy snack.
