Greetings from the air! I am currently on my way back to Dallas after spending the weekend in Charlotte with my husband visiting one of my high school BFFs and her husband. It was a wonderful weekend that just makes your heart feel full. Reconnecting with an old friend right where you left off is the sign of a true friendship in my opinion. We had a great time eating our way through Charlotte and watching playoff football. So bummed about the Cowboys losing.
During this pregnancy I am hoping to maintain my fitness and complete a couple half marathons. I figured I can keep my blog updated with what I have been doing in case anyone is interested in “pregnant running/fitness.” I am currently 19 weeks pregnant (will be halfway this week – CRAZY!) and have been feeling pretty good the past few weeks! The first trimester definitely was a bit rough with just having no energy and a little nausea but overall I am a lucky woman and didn’t deal with too many issues. I was able to continue to run and crossfit. I think its so fun “running with my baby.”
My fitness goals are:
* Complete the Houston Half Marathon on Sunday!
* Complete my first trail half marathon at 29 weeks pregnant — if for some reason my body doesn’t allow this, that will be fine but I am excited to train and attempt to complete this even if it means some walking. My mom and I are both planning on doing this — Grasslands Half Marathon.
* Continue to run 3-4 times a week and go to Crossfit 3 times a week.
19 Weeks Workouts:
Monday — CrossFit and ran a mile afterwards
Tuesday — 6 miles of hills! This run was a little rough but with a little walking I made it through!
Wednesday — CrossFit in the morning and then a WINDY 4 mile run with my mom — we were hoping to do trails but since they were muddy that was not an option for us.
Thursday — CrossFit — tons of rowing!
Friday — Almost 5 miles
Saturday — Day Off
Sunday — Elliptical
I was planning on getting in a longer run on Saturday but I ended up sleeping in and not having time for it. At this point I am just going to enjoy sleeping in while I can — my husband and I definitely know those days are numbered!
Are you still friends with anyone from high school?
What was the last weekend trip you took?
