August Week 4 Weekly Recap

I made it! I did my first postpartum race Saturday, and I did it! I am feeling pretty good about my race and everything! I was expecting like 1 hour and 5-10 min time to do the 4 miler but nope, I made it under an hour, BARELY! But that is ok. I was also under my 15 min/mile rule that I had during my pregnancy. AND I know that I had negative splits for the last 2 miles because my legs finally warmed up and I know I was running and walking faster! I will have my race recap up later this week!

I am trying to get into more of a routine schedule with Mason and his "pre-pre school" with me. He isn't potty trained yet so he can't go to pre-school yet so WELCOME to the Allen Academy! I am also trying to schedule in more play groups during the week to give him more social interactions. We went to 3 last week. It was great watching him play, but I was still the center of his attention. Except at the race. There were tons of other kids that would rough house with him and while I was running, he was too. He was exhausted when we got home!

This week on the workout front wasn't as great as I wanted, but it was also taper week. I adjusted my workouts so they wouldn't kill me for the race. Next week, the first week of Sept. I am buckling down! Getting back into my schedule and will finish PiYo soon. Looking into starting another workout routine that includes portion control. I have lost inches, it is now time to start losing weight too!

Sunday: rest
Monday: PiYo Upper Define
Tuesday: PiYo lower Define
Wednesday: 1.5 mile walk
