Oh what a week. The holidays, they make things feel like such a whirlwind.
First thing’s first; weekly workout update.
I ran only once this week. On Monday I got on the treadmill and did another interval workout. I walked half a mile, ran half a mile, walked a quarter mile, ran a half mile, walked a quarter mile. That gave me one mile ran and two total miles. I felt good during the run intervals and it was hard for me not to want to keep going, but I made myself stop at the half mile marks. It’s important to me that I wait the full six weeks before I really start running again. And good news; I’m now six weeks postpartum as of today and I am planning to crank out a full, steady state mile run today. Little victories.
So that was it for me for workouts this week. I had planned to run at least one more time but it just didn’t happen.
We did get to celebrate baby’s first Christmas though, which was fun.
We got her a few small things, plus we did our usual gift swap. Rob got me a few new triathlon things too, so here I come IMChoo! But really, we had a nice day at home celebrating. We know Ellie won’t remember this, but it was important to us to set the tone for how our Christmas holidays will go now as a new family with a kid in the mix. And we of course drove to Syracuse and celebrated with our families too. Overall it was a really good Christmas.
This week I’m planning to get in all the running I can
muster up make time for. I’m also hoping to get Finley on the bike trainer so I can start riding again. That will require some puzzle work to make everything in the basement fit but I’ll figure it out. So excited to ride again! Hopefully I can have a good week with one more holiday looming on the horizon still.
