Another week, another week.
I didn’t get as much in as I had hoped for this week, but it was still decent. Again, decent being relative. I’m nine weeks out from a c-section and attempting to rebuild my base slowly.
Monday I got on the treadmill and got in a 1.5 mile run. I ran at 12:17 and 12:10 respectively, so I’m slowly, very slowly, whittling down the time.
Tuesday I got back on my bike and managed 25 minutes before baby started to wake up. My legs felt a bit better this time, as did my all my saddle spots. I got in 8.16 miles in the time I spent on my bike and an average power of 113 watts. I have some cycling work to do, but every ride will get better.
Wednesday I ran again and did a quarter mile warm up and cool down with 2 miles of running in between. I felt good and like I could have ran more, but slow and steady. Slow and steady. I ran 12:23 and 12:09 respectively.
Thursday I skipped my ride and headed to Syracuse to spend the day with my mom. It was nice to get out and spend some time hanging out with her.
I ran again on Friday, but my run was cut short by a screaming baby. I did a short warm up then got in 1.5 miles of running before having to jump off the treadmill and go take care of Little Girl. I felt great and was hoping to run longer, but so goes life and so goes parenting.
And then that was it for workouts for me. We worked on transitioning Ellie to her crib this week and the amount of sleep I was getting became questionable. And, sadly, my body betrayed me and my first postpartum period showed up. Death. All the dying. So, yeah.
This week my “long” run will be 2.5 miles and I’m planning to try and go longer on my bike. Granted a lot of this is dependent on timing my workouts with the correct nap time for Ellie. But it should be doable.
What was your best workout this week?
