Hitting the Pavement
Mercifully, despite not working out, I lost all my pregnancy weight. Over the last few months, the pounds have been slowly creeping back on. Certainly, I have no dreams or aspirations to be a size 4, but I certainly do not want to find myself back where I was 5 years ago after having Lil' Wingnut!
We are now settled and have some semblance of a schedule we follow. The excuses have run out. The new jogging stroller arrived Friday afternoon. Saturday I hit the pavement for the first time and it felt completely crumby. Thankfully, Lil' Lamb seemed to love the ride. I'm sure after a few more ventures out, I'll feel back in the grove.
I'm using the Couch to 5K program. I think it will fit my busy life. It requires only 30 minutes 3 times a week and hopefully by the end of 9 weeks I'll be running 5k. On off days, I've decided to use the P90X Stretch DVD. I love stretching, it takes me back to my dancing roots. This morning I actually felt pretty wonderful and pain free, so I'm sure a good stretching regiment is what my bod needs.
As Lil' Lamb continues to mature and can handle more time away from me, I'm hoping I can bring my running up to 10K. Until then, I am just happy to be moving once again.
