When I look back over the past couple weeks I'm really pretty pleased with my performance. There have been set backs and I haven't always met my self imposed goals. However, that's the nice thing about this pregnancy thing - my REAL goal is to have a happy, healthy baby. That means it doesn't matter if I run 4.5 miles or 6 (as happened this morning since I just wasn't feeling it). Pretty sure one reason I 'wasn't feeling it' was because I rode 22 hilly miles on my road bike last night (and did an hour of spin yesterday morning & commuted to work). It's always a challenging course, but it's more so when pregnant and having that constant need to breath and stuff. Not losing your breath on the hills is a challenge, but doable if you have really low gears. I do, and I use them. And, I ride smarter than I have before. I give a kick on the down hill to make sure I have plenty of steam to get me up the next one. It works. More legs, less lungs.
Wednesday I was able to run 6. Tuesday was spinning. Monday I felt off and skipped my run, but still did our Monday night chill ride (only 8 miles, slow on trails to encourage beginners). Sunday was 2 hours of mountain biking - pretty easy single track - preggo friendly. Saturday was only 4 miles and riding to and from prenatal class. The week before looked fairly similar. There was also the occasional yoga (twice a week) and daily commuting. How can I not be happy with that. :-)
