I have been a little lazy in the posting category lately, or maybe its called life has taken over. I did do the Mountain Goat run a few weeks ago and just stayed at a steady pace coming in around 1:45 for the 10 miles. Trying to keep your heartrate low for 10 hilly miles proved challenging.

The reason I have to keep my heartrate so low is because my honey and I wound up with a big surprise about a month ago! We are having a baby!

I am now 10 weeks and still enjoying swimming, biking and running but in my own way. I had to defer all my races until next summer but I am ok with this now!

So the focus on this blog for the time being is being accountable for working out most days of the week while being pregnant, staying healthy in the eating department when my ice cream cravings aren't there and just having fun while doing it!

Today I still managed 3 miles in the heat at 10 min miles, keeping my heartrate around 140. So nice to see I can still do this!

I have been trying to swim at least 2 days per week, bike 3, run 3 and if not, the precor comes into play when I am not having a good run day. Keeping active during this pregnancy is really important to me as my first one I did nothing!!

My daughter had her first gymnastics meet today. She was too cute! She was so nervous and anxious she forgot to wait until the judges called her name and lost some points for not waiting. All in all she managed all around 10th place which I am so proud of her. She just started a year ago and was moved up to the elite team 2 months ago so this has definately made her see what competition is like!

I hope you all are enjoying this beautiful Sunday Afternoon!! happy Training!
