26.2 and Pregnant
Well, I never did end up making up that missed run from this morning. As much of a morning exerciser as I am, sometimes if it doesn’t get done in the morning, it doesn’t get done at all. Ce la vie!
I got out of work a wee bit later than I thought I would and I had boot camp class to teach soon after. Actually, you know what, that’s just an excuse. Bottom line is I just really wasn’t up to it. So I took Niko for 30 minute walk instead. No big deal
Missed run or not, my boot campers sure didn’t miss their workout today! And since I didn’t get in any formal exercise today, I joined in on part of the workout, which focused on progressions!
Warm up ~5 minute jog, stretch
Progressions ~20 minutes:
- Lunge progressions: backward lunches>backward lunges w/ ball pass>booty burners (I’ll do a video on these soon…they burrrrn the booty)
- Pushup progressions: pushups on incline>pushups w/ row>pushups w/ knee tuck and kick back
- Squats progressions: squats>squat pulses>squat jumps
- Core progressions: crunches>oblique crunches>supine marches
Metabolic~10 minutes 5-4-3-2-1 Workout
5 burpees, 5 squat jacks
4 brupees, 4 squat jacks
3 burpees, 3 squat jacks
2 burpees, 2 squat jacks
1 burpee, 1 squat jack
Cool down, stretch ~5 minutes. Woo!!
I didn’t get home until fairly late tonight, so I wanted something quick and easy. After boot camp, I was finally hungry (today was food day in the office, and being TOTM, I had little control over the cookie and subsequent brownie that made it to my desk and then had the nerve of ruining my appetite!) and wanted some food now. I’d planned on making chili, but after this afternoon’s lunch, I didn’t feel like eating anything…mushy. Instead, I went with a go-to as of late…can ya guess???
I enjoyed the salad with a side of blueberry Chobani. Random, but yummy.
26.2 and Pregnant
Did ya’ll hear about the woman who ran a marathon just hours before giving birth? Apparently she got the clear from her doctor, but she told the doc she had no plans on finishing – just running half and walking the rest.
Amber Miller is an avid runner and had run 8 previous marathons, but ran this one just days from her due date.
Of course I’m no doctor, but this sounds a little risky to me! Avid runner or not, running 26.2 miles wreaks havoc on the body. I doubt that it was coincidental she went into labor right after finishing. I mean, good for her for being able to do that,and I’m all for staying active while pregnant, but just don’t know…it sounds very dangerous to me.
Either way – imagine saying that you feel like you just ran a marathon AND feel like you just went through childbirth…in the same day. Ay ay ay.
Time to go relax! Shane and I haven’t watched Sunday’s Dexter yet and I needs mah fix!!
Have a lovely night, friends
What do you guys think about running about the woman who ran marathon and then gave birth??
