So before I was pregnant I could run, not breaking records but I would do 5Ks, 10Ks, and even some half marathons. While I was pregnant I was unable to workout, exercise, and bearly allowed to walk. And my recovery from my c-section has been a hard one. I started walking and doing Zumba after 6 weeks. Even though it has been hard to get back into the routine of things, I have tried my best to at least do something every week.
This is what I am doing:
Monday-Treadmill 1 hr, Zumba 1 hr
Tuesday-Walk 3 miles
Wednesday-Run/Jog, Walk 2.88 miles
Thursday-Walk 3 miles
Saturday-Zumba 1 hr
This is my schedule that I am suppose to follow every week. Some weeks I do it all, some weeks I only do one day, but I do something. I have not lost any weight. I cannot diet because I am breastfeeding. But my time is getting better and better.
My biggest supporter and coach has been my husband. He is helping me every step of the way. He walks with me on Tuesday and Thursdays. My bestfriend works out with me on Mondays. And so are my co-workers. We have started a running team. Even though right now our motto is to Run, Jog, Walk, or Crawl~to the finish line, and of course to have fun doing it! After work on Wednesday, we go to the park accross the street and run together. While we all start together, we do not finish together. But we are all there at the end. And we have every fitness level from beginners to advance. The point is a have a great support group.
My first goal is to finish a 5K in under 30 minutes.
So follow along my road back. Every month I will update where I am, if I have lost any weight and update you on my races. Accountability can make someone accomplish their goals, so check on me, ask me, give me advice, etc..
Do you run/jog/walk? Do you have a goal? Do you have a suggestion or advice for me? I would love to hear your comments, questions, or concerns...
