Moving Right Along....

No post yesterday - I was too exhausted to even look at the computer, much less make it to the gym (and weigh myself). I guess when you have a nursing newborn, you're just going to have those days when you can barely lift your head off the pillow. Yesterday was one of them. Eh, maybe it's an excuse, but I pretty much knew from the moment I woke up that it wasn't going to happen. That's how tired I was.

But today - still tired - I pulled it together and hit the gym.

Total Cardio: 65 minutes
30 min-elliptical
32 min - run 3 miles (1 minute faster than yesterday! It's a slow climb but a climb nonetheless!)
3 min - warm-up/cool down

Every day, including today, it's getting better. Both sets felt good, and I actually felt like I could keep running. But since I promised everyone (read: husband and doctor) that I would take it easy, I stopped once I hit my planned 3, and then planned to try 4 tomorrow. And wonders never cease - I am actually looking foward to it!

Perhaps today's workout was good because there was a lot on my mind. Changes are afoot here at the Project - in a major life-as-we-know-it kind of way. As a result, I had to break some bad news to someone right before I went into the gym, and it was hard to take my mind off of the whole situation. Can't say much more about it all just yet, but once the pieces are in place, I'll put it out there for consumption.

It's so nice when a run gets your mind off of the crappy things in life! :) AND when it makes you want more! You are already getting back in the spirit! :) Yay!

Yay - more running! Get out there girl. Time to yourself is a very precious commodity when you have a newborn. I hope you enjoy every second of it.
