I finally got around to that run today after being unable to for the past two days due to extra feedings (hello 6-week growth spurt!) and family visiting. But I dare say it was worth the wait. To run after being unable to for several months was FREAKING AWESOME. Having a full lung capacity was practically orgasmic. I ventured to the other side of the river, which I literally have not been able to do on foot for weeks and months. I felt great and it seems like getting back in shape will not be too difficult.
Oh, people. I feel like I'm back. It's such a good feeling.
Here's my exercise plan for the week. I'm putting it in the sidebar for extra incentive, although I feel pretty motivated to squeeze in exercise. It's not only scheduled "me" time, but it's pretty much crucial for my mental health. Plus I think it takes the edge off the sleep deprivation.
Sunday - Walk/Zumba DVD
Monday - Couch25K Week 1 #2
Tuesday - Walk/Zumba
Wednesday - Couch25K Week 1 #3
Thursday - Walk/Zumba
Friday - Couch 25K Week 2 #1
Saturday - 30 Day Shred Level 1
Now some help from the blogosphere. Does anyone own Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown? Yay or Nay? Also - I need to fill up my iPhone with more running music. My tastes tend towards the pop variety but I'm open to anything that motivates, which ranges from a peppy country song to electronic music. Right now I have the following on there:
Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5
Blow by Ke$ha
Knee Deep by Zac Brown Band
Firework by Katy Perry
I Wanna Go by Britney Spears
What are you all listening to these days?
