As I’m writing up my log for the week I’m also making brownies and watching the Olympics, which is making me feel like a huge, lazy slug. The giant belly isn’t helping.
Just kidding, I mean, I’m still eating the brownies, but I was able to get in a few good workouts this week, despite it being a sick week and a super stressful work week. The stressful work week isn’t expected to go away anytime soon, but the sickness is mostly gone, and I’m definitely looking forward to some night running and after-baby-bedtime barre and spinning. I won’t be able to workout at lunch this week but my husband is home (!), so he can put the baby to bed while I escape. And burn off the 18-grams-of-sugar-per-serving brownies that I’ll probably finish off by tomorrow.
Go Team USA!
Workout: 6 mile stroller run
Pace: Stroller Pace
Duration: about an hour
Notes: John was working on Saturday, so I took the baby and the Bob to Sullivan’s Island as early as I could. Apparently, it wasn’t early enough, because after a nice, breezy three mile run out, it turned into a miserable, hot, gross three miles back. I kept it SUPER easy because you’re not supposed to overheat while pregnant, so I walked if I felt too hot and I drank a ton of water. This miserable run was followed by an even more miserable experience at GoGoGreen’s trying to get a breakfast sandwich and smoothie. Which they never made. I have no pregnancy patience for bad service.
Workout: Suzanne Bowen Fitness prenatal DVD
Duration: 1 hour
Notes: This was a repeat of last week, I did all three workouts and felt great. The three workouts are arms and core, lower body barre and cardio barre. Barre is a crucial pregnancy workout for me–it keeps me feeling toned, where running keeps me feeling sane.
Duration: 40 min at the gym during lunch
Notes: Another 40 minutes of watching Crazy Ex Girlfriend. I have like, three episodes left. Can someone give me another show, stat???
Workout: Outside Lunch Run
Duration: 41 min
Pace: 9:15 pace
Distance: 4.5 miles
Notes: It was ACTUALLY COOL during lunch!! I ran down a shady path and a shady street, with a nice breeze. It was a little humid at some parts, but it felt so good to run outside. However, I did start feeling a tickle in my throat, and knew that I was about to get sick.
Workout: Sick Day. I woke up feeling awful so I took the day off from working out. But not from working, unfortunately.
Workout: Lunchtime Barre
Duration: 40 min
Notes: I still felt awful, but I needed to move a little. This workout is really light with a lot of toning and stretching, so it felt good, not stressful. I always think it feels better to move a little when I’m sick, personal preference.
Workout: Treadmill Miles
Duration: 32ish min
Pace: About 9:15ish
Distance: 3.5 miles
Notes: I switched treadmills halfway through so I didn’t get an overall pace, but it was 10 min easy, then 20 minutes of 2 minutes easy, 2 minutes a little faster, then a cool down. I still wasn’t feeling 100%, so I kept it as easy as possible and didn’t push the pace or distance. But man did it feel good to sweat.
Pregnancy week: 21
