I just posted the post I wrote 2 weeks ago. I just want to give a quick update on my training.
I have 7 pounds to loose. It seemed like it was just flying right off (it kind of was), but I think it's slowed in the last few days.
I started running 4 miles each time and worked on getting it close to 40 minutes. My record is 4 miles in 43 minutes and 10 seconds.
I'm working really hard and I'm feeling like the results are slowing. I want to diet quite badly but can't. I've cut just about all dairy out of my diet in the hopes it will help my daughter not be so colicy. But I've just replaced that with more grains. I've cut out a lot of the vegetables I was starting to enjoy eating. Peppers and onions.. you know, the stuff that gives food flavor. Hopefully I wont have to do it for much longer since we will start her on solids soon.
I'm starting to really want to chop my hair and give myself a dramatic change. The only reason I'm hesitating is because I want to give it to locks of love and I need another inch. So I'm trying to wait until mid March. But I feel like my face is finally mine again. Still has some chub to loose, but I am looking so much more like myself.
I'm running 4-6 days a week. I was going to try to run every day this week but I didn't feel well so I couldn't. Dang. So I'll run tomorrow and Saturday and it will be 5 times this week. To total 20 miles. Not so bad.
It's amazing though. The change my body has undergone. I can run at a 5.5 for ever without getting out of breath. It's my body that get's tired. I go at a 6 for 15 minutes and then slow down to a 5.8 for a few minutes then a 5.5 and I stay at that till my body decides it needs a break. So I walk for 2-3 minutes and then run at a 5.5 for 10 minutes or more and I keep that up until I hit 4 miles. Then I walk on an incline to cool down and give my legs more of a workout.
Right now I'm just trying to stay motivated and not get down because I'm not magically my pre pregnancy self again. It's only been 4 months, I need to chill. I know.
