Wrapping Up Last Week

Yikes! I'm so behind. I haven't posted all my milage for last week and I've already started my milage for this week. The OCD side of me can't combine the two weeks' milage in the same post. I need 'em separate. Ridiculous, isn't it? :) 

First of all, let me just say that I am so incredibly encouraged by the email and comments I keep receiving from you guys! You're unbelievable! There are women working out indoors with 13 feet of snow outside. There are women doing C25K (Couch to 5K). There are moms who are riding bikes with their kids riding along in the back and more.
Can I just say that before I found out I was pregnant, I tried riding a little pink beach cruiser on the trails alongside my husband while he ran. I'm embarrassed to say that there was more than one time that my husband helped to PUSH ME UPHILL.
He's running. I'm "biking" and he's pushing me up the hill. 
True story. Sigh.
 I can't even imagine having a passenger. :) 
You go, girls!

So here's the rest of my milage for this past week....
Saturday: 3 miles in 28:47.34
Mile 1:10:14
Mile 2: 9:49
Mile 3: 8:42

Sunday: 4 miles in 39:46.38
Mile 1: 10:00
Mile 2: 10:13
Mile 3: 9:35
Mile 4: 9:59

Total for the week: 21 miles!!!

This wraps up my third week in a row of running! Can you believe it? I can't! I've always quit by now in the past! This morning, my husband told me that he's kind of getting excited to see my progress. He said he thinks I'm actually going to stick to it this time and he's so proud of me. :D
THE BLOG IS WORKING FOR ME, GIRLS! :D It's just the kind of accountability and community that I needed. I hope that it's helping you as well. We're in this together. :D Keep letting me hear from you!

  1. You are doing great and you are inspiring to me too. Last week I did two bikerides and one 4K run in mud. Today I gave my running buddy away and it will be hard getting out there again running without her. At least I will still have the kid on the back of my bike telling me to go go go when we are out riding.
