I also tried a Jillian Michaels yoga video. It was HARD! I had to modify A LOT of the moves and had to take a few breathers. She moves fast through each move to burn more calories but it was a little too fast for my fitness level but also for the speed my brain can compute what she is doing. I also somehow managed to pull a muscle in my hand during the workout. Seriously?! It took a couple days before I could do a push up with an open hand!
I was feeling a little run down so rather than trying another high intensity Jillian Michaels, I opted to do the post-natal rescue video twice. It's much slower pace and focuses on strengthening the core but also incorporates some leg work that I've noticed has helped with some tightness I've had in my hips.
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday I got in some great mileage! 14 miles to be exact! Friday was a family 3.5 mile walk. Other than spending time together, the best part was that The Pilot pushed the stroller! Saturday might as well have been a 4 mile swim. For once I wasn't exaggerating and it really was 100% humidity. It was about 70 when we got started but it felt like 90. Katy pushed me through it though and we did a lot of running and finished just under an hour, which put me at pre-pregnancy pace....for walking but hey, it's progress.
Sunday was the jackpot though! It was my first "real" race since having Megatron. I've done two charity 5ks for great causes but this was a chance to race. It was a quarter marathon, so about 6.5 miles. I'll hopefully get a full race recap written soon but it was an amazing morning!
