Finally getting my workouts back

Well we still have a lot to do around the house, but I am finally able to get some real workouts in. Here is what I accomplished last week:

Monday - Ran 4 miles with jogging stroller

Tuesday - 70 minutes Yoga X

Wednesday - Ran 4 miles (treadmill)

Thursday - 1.5 hours tennis (practice)

Friday - Ran 4 miles with jogging stroller

Saturday - Rest

Sunday - Played singles tennis match (1.75 hours, and I won!)

My new neighborhood is very hilly so 4 miles with the jogging stroller is a lot harder than my last neighborhood. My legs are definitely feeling it. Also, playing tennis in the middle of the day when it's 95 degrees may seem a little crazy, but actually, I love it. The heat does not bother me as much as it does most people, so I know I have an advantage.

My next race coming up is the Peachtree Road Race (10k). I don't feel like I am in great shape since I took so much time off for moving, but I think if I can keep up this schedule and with all the tennis I have recently added, I might have a decent time. We will see though. I do have to travel for business in a couple of weeks, which used to be a good thing because I could workout every morning before my day started. This time is different though. Little Miss Hope is coming with me. :) Along with some assistance from family. I have to travel the entire week, and Adam wasn't sure he could tackle working and watching Hope for that long. Also, Hope has gotten extremely clingy with me so I am not sure what she would do if I was actually gone for the whole week. So when I am not in a meeting I will have Hope and no jogging stroller. I am not sure how many workouts I am going to get in, so we will see. Although, it could be a good taper time for me.

  1. Are you going to be in one single location for the week you're traveling? You can rent a jogging stroller when you get there! We've done it several times, using Baby's Away and Breezy Baby Travel Co. Might help maintain your sanity. :) They drop off and pick up, and bill your credit/debit card.
