I have to apologize for being completely forgetful last week and not posting my progress pics. Or even taking them for that matter. It was on the back of my mind a couple of weeks ago to get it done but I just plain forgot. I will try to get those to you soon! Not much has changed, I think I’m at a plateau for the time being until I change up my exercise routine, which likely won’t happen until after my half marathon in October. I’m perfectly fine with that because as I said last week, my body is working at it’s max capacity right now given how little sleep it’s getting (with last night being no exception…oy!!)
Part of my plan for the remainder of my mat leave (I go back to work in February) is to get myself to this half marathon and then take a bit of a break from running. Not a full out break but no intense training. I had considered signing up for the Hypothermic Half in February but I think that my body will need a bit of a break from the miles I’ve been putting on it over the last few months. I don’t want to lose my base but my legs need some time to adjust and I need to spend some time concentrating on strength training. I’ve already signed up for the Fargo half marathon in May so I’ll be starting a training cycle in February again.
For now, I’m going to get through these last weeks of running, and then look forward to Fargo!
Oh…and try not to get pregnant again before that (eek!)
I will leave you with this, the first picture of me and my wonderfully adorable boys together and smiling since shortly after Baby O. was born. My heart just melts seeing these two little faces every day.
