Morning everyone! Hope you are having a super St. Paddy's Day!
Today is a special one for me because one year ago today was the last day I was pregnant. Although I was bummed that the kids came on the 18th instead of the 17th because I didn't get to have my green beer, I did have a great time as it was my first full day with zero bedrest. After being on modified and then strict bedrest for 14 weeks, I was ready to get moving!
I got my three miler in on Tuesday - and it was awesome. Ran with Mattie on a hilly route averaging about 9:30 miles.. I felt great cardiovascularly, but I can tell I need to start hill workouts... my quads were on FIRE! And, my stupid shins are worse than ever. I've decided that after the Oshkosh half marathon (on Apr 16th) I'll take it easy for as long as necessary, even if that means skipping the GB half in May. Which would make me cry.
I think my hot hubby is coming to the gym with me tonight! My momma offered to come twin-sit, and I'm really excited to pump some iron with my love. May skip my Thurs tempo again depending on my shins. Then maybe I'll bust out a beer and my green food coloring... it's only 10am and I hear it calling me..
