In case you missed it, yesterday on Instagram I shared that I’ve ben running for two! I’m 16 weeks along, which means I’ve been keeping this secret for quite some time. I’m at the point where it’s getting a little harder to hide, so it was definitely time to share! Today’s post will just be my usually weekly wrap, but if you’re interested I may share a little more tomorrow about how the last few months have been going.
Last week was such a strange week with the 4th of July falling on a Wednesday. Most of the week was still super hot, and I think by Wednesday I reached my limit for running in the heat. It was just brutal out there. Luckily by Saturday we had some cooler weather which felt amazing, and I got in my first pregnant double-digit run!
Monday: 4 miles + mobility
When I posted on Instagram after this run, I shared some of the ways you know it’s REALLY hot out, and got some great responses!
Tuesday: 20 minutes spin bike and Strength training
It was kind of nice to take a break from the heat for an indoor workout!
Wednesday: 6 miles + mobility
Ugh, this run was brutal. I got out the door later than I planned but I don’t even think that was the problem. It was just so hot and humid. I brought water but it got warm pretty much immediately. There were lots of walking breaks involved.
Thursday: Strength training
I just had time for strength training but no yoga, even though I know it would have felt really good!
Friday: 2 mile run/walk + mobility
Once again, I couldn’t decide what to do on a Friday (which is usually an optional run day for me). I did my mobility exercises and then jumped on the treadmill for a 20 minute run/walk.
Saturday: 10 miles
When I woke up on Saturday morning it was such a pleasant surprise to walk onto the deck and realize it was actually chilly outside! It was nice to not have to rush out the door for my run. It was amazing how much easier it felt to run in 60 degree temps versus 80 degree temps.
I didn’t get any yoga in this week, so Sunday was the day!
It was nice to have a cooler weekend although I’m sure the heat will be back soon. It seems like this summer has been all about surviving the heat!
