Up until yesterday, I exercised every day of 2012. For a pregnant lady, I'd say that's not too shabby. Honestly, to day I planned on running a few miles, but sleep did not go well last night. I was up twice because our otherwise wonderful cat was purring like a diesel engine in my ear (and knows how to open doors- that's the second one) and twice with the bambino: once for a lost blanky-bear and once because the darn cat opened his door and curled up on his bed. All this plus normal second-trimester tossing and turning equals very little sleep.
So, here's a recap of my streak:
January 1- Resolution un-Run with Dad. 3.1 miles
January 2- 4-mile walk to and from a playdate, plus 1 mile run on the treadmill.
January 3- Treadmill while watching Biggest Loser.
January 4- 30 minutes of yoga
January 5- 2-mile neighborhood run
January 6- 2.6-mile loop from the house
January 7- 30-minute yoga
January 8- 30-minute yoga
January 9- 3-mile treadmill run
How do I feel? A little run-down, but I don't think it's from exercise. I am fighting off a cold right now. Judging by the number of students who have been absent this week already, it's probably a losing battle.
And for tomorrow? I want to streak again! My legs did not feel overly tired, and the yoga helps me sleep. I feel like building up my frequency of workouts now, while the intensity and speed are down, is a good way to maintain a real base when it comes to training.
