Week in Review

Monday - 2.6 miles run/walk treadmill
I'm embarrassed to say I did this on the treadmill.  It was 65 degrees today.  On December 3rd!  But, I worked a long day and laid around until Dave got home.  By that time it was dark and I'm not very good at running in the dark.  I don't want to fall and do any damage to Baby G, so we went to the gym instead.  It was about 9000 degrees inside the Y tonight, so I was forced to walk more than I wanted to keep my heart rate down and to keep from overheating.

Tuesday - Off
By the time I could have gotten out to workout, it was POURING outside.   Plus, I did ALL my Christmas shopping this afternoon and my feet were killing me from doing all that walking.

Wednesday - 3 miles elliptical
Dave didn't get home from work until about 7:30 and we had already decided to go to the gym no matter how late it was.  So we got there around 8:00 and basically had the gym to ourselves.  Dave hit the treadmill and I hit the elliptical.  I kept track of my heart rate and it kept creeping higher than I was comfortable.  So I had to slow down and take a little more time.  Safe, not sorry.

Thursday - 3 mile walk treadmill
Today was Dave's birthday and we had planned eating out Mexican and I had bought a cake.  I knew I had to do something to feel good about eating all that.  So, it was me, The Ellen Show, and the treadmill.

Friday - Off
I like to take Fridays off because we usually do a group run on Saturday morning.  Of course, I did have my swim clothes with me in the car all day.  Lazy buns!

Saturday - 3 miles group run
This was kind of a crappy run.  It was raining and muggy and things just didn't go as well as I had hoped.  I was walking within a quarter mile of the run.  Every time I have a bad run I wonder if this is the beginning of the end for my pregnancy running.  Dave always reminds me that every time I've said that I've had a good run the following week.  Let's hope.

Sunday - off
I have no excuse for why I didn't work out today.

This was not the week I was hoping to have.  Not only did the weather sucked (it rained and rained and rained - when did I move to a tropical location?) but I was just worn out.  I can tell that my third trimester is a few short weeks away because I've reached a whole new level of tired.  On Saturday and Sunday I took naps that totaled about 6+ hours.  That's cray cray! 

Hopefully I'll try a little harder and do a little better next week.

Totals - 11.6 miles
