Adam is off taking his boards right now (prayer) and, to distract myself, I just have to report that the running is improving. I had my 3rd official run yesterday and I walked for 5 minutes to warm up, ran for 10 minutes, walked for 5, ran for 10, and walked 6 to get back home. So, my running increments are getting longer and I think that normal runs may be just around the corner! I was feeling much better during the run and I didn't feel so hunched over and like a 90-year-old with a peg leg. I also used the ipod and pumped up the motivating tunes to get my legs moving on tempo and that certainly helped (not to mention the people driving by while I ran...they helped too).
I also tried to do abs and realized that I have no abs any longer. I don't know if they've even reconnected since I had Henry. Doing normal crunches was okay by trying to do anything lower-ab-y was pathetic. BUT it feels good to be doing something and I am enjoying getting back into exercising- it makes me a much more pleasant and balanced person to be around and gives me energy to keep up with my three men.
Plus, I'd like to fit into my jeans again one day...and NOT my maternity jeans.
