Even though I am not currently training for anything I thought I would document what the end of second trimester workouts look like for me. I was really hoping to continue to include lots of strength training and running. I got derailed a bit in December and January with sickness and schedule changes. I am hoping that next week includes much more strength training (alarm is set for tomorrow!)
Monday: Rest Day. Although calling this a rest day makes me laugh a little. I watched another little boy that is the same age as Cannon for the day when he didn’t have childcare for the week. I seriously give it up to twin mamas, I was exhausted after watching these two cuties.
Tuesday: Treadmill Run, just nice and easy for 40 minutes. I took walk breaks when anything hurt or my heart rate got too high.
Wednesday: Cannon and I were hanging with his friend again all day so we opted to break out the double Thule and go for an afternoon walk.
Thursday: Back at the gym for a treadmill run, I am really missing running outside but with the lack of light in the morning/evening and availability of child care I have been embracing the treadmill and elliptical. On this day I decided to do a little interval work. I warmed up for 15 minutes easy then did 20 minutes of 1 minute controlled pace (not pushing to much) 1 minute easy, then cooled down 10 minutes.
Friday: Before taking Cannon to his gymnastic class I was able to jump on the elliptical for an easy 30 minutes. I feel like hanging with Cannon in gymnastic class should count as a 30 minute HIIT workout. I always leave exhausted.
Saturday: Rest Day
Sunday:I wasn’t feeling great over the weekend so I took rest days both days. I needed some time to rest and let my body do it’s thing. Luckily I felt better on Monday, ready to show up for Cannon and my students.
I am hoping that this week I will feel better and fit more strength training in.
Happy Running Everyone!
