Slow but steady

I will admit I slept in on Monday but I blame daylight savings and my in laws visit over the weekend for that. (The visit in a good way, we stayed up too late, having too much fun).

However, the last two days I've been up at 5 am, like a good girl. Yesterday I did a yoga work out and this morning I ran a mile and a half in 24 minutes. Which is pretty good for me. My goal will be to run two miles comfortably in the morning in around 25-30 minutes and then start adding more distance and speed. I need to keep the yoga portion in there though otherwise I get so tight that my feet cramp uncontrollably. Keeping the flexibility is super important for me. My husband never stretches and it doesn't seem to bother him.

I think we may have to actually get a tread mill that's not a $30 yard sale version but this one's still working, so we'll hang on to it for a little while longer.

Today I am fairly sore. I did lots of planks and some solid ab work yesterday. I'd like to get my saggy belly under control before bathing suit season. I was actually pretty happy with how my rear looked in a pre-baby bikini that I tried on for fun a few weeks ago and my hips weren't bad either, but the belly thing is a little rough.

Let's see...I guess swim suit season officially starts Memorial Day, right? At least that's when the pools open in Georgia. So that's 10 weeks away.

Let's see how it goes, but I'd like to get into a bikini this summer! Haven't worn one since before Ali was born.

  1. I'm so inspired by your early morning workouts! Daylight Savings has killed me. I've been ramping up my running too and it's been tough! I probably should add a little Yoga in though. I'm sure my body would thank me. ;-)
