Exercise Every Day

Amazing run this morning, 40 mins followed by 8 mins of walking and stretching! I felt wonderful and was proud of myself since I got out the door at 6:40am to run while my husband, and two kids were sleeping. Still felt slight pain/pressure down south as always but other than that it was quite peaceful and enjoyable for a Sunday morning. Eventually I stopped at 40 mins due to my body feeling tired and ready to slow down. Also, I want to make sure I don’t do too much too fast. It is now evening time as I write thisĀ and I can feel my inner thighs are aching a little and I am quite tired. Milk production seems to be ok as well. When running you need to be careful that you don’t go too intense or too long too soon because this make effect milk production. Believe me, I was not going fast, probably just over a 10min mile pace. Before pregnancy I was around 8:30 pace sometimes faster. My focus is not on speed now, just getting out there and increasing my time.

Tip: Just get out there and do something every day even if you only have 10mins, it’s better than nothing. Some days I have to break my workouts up into two or three segments due to taking care of my two year old and/or my baby. I may due 10mins of dynaband work, 15 mins of yoga later, and take my two little ones out for a 12min walk in the evening. If you are feeling tired, because that lack of sleep kicks in big time some days, just go for a short walk or do some light yoga.
