Training with a busy life
I cant believe its been 2 months since my last post! There is a lot happening in this household and unfortunately this was put on the back burner. Hoping to blog a little bit more now that My 10 1/2 month old son is finally in a schedule that fits our family well. I have been keeping up with my running. I have been involved in our local Y running group which keeps me on track with my runs. I have slowly made it back to 90min of running on the weekend! My base runs have been anywhere from 30-60min at least 4 times weekly. I have ran a few races last month and felt pretty strong throughout the runs. Run for Their Life 15k- 1:32:54, 21/47 in AG 30-39 Empire State Marathon Relay- 3:46, 4th overall female team!! Eastwood Park to park 5 mile run- 45:34 (9:05ave pace) 21/60 in AG 30-39 Biking has been going well. I have been getting on the bike for at least an hour 2-3 times a week. This is all I can afford to do at this time with the baby. I am not training for anything at this point, just trying to keep my fitness up for the spring when racing here in good ole Central New York will begin again!! I wanted to try cyclocross racing this year, but chickened out and didn't. I'm hoping to try to dabble into it more next fall. Swimming has been less than stellar with running races on Sundays and with the pool closing at the Y for roof repairs. I don't think I have swam but half a dozen times in the last month!! YIKES!! Also, I am on Day 10 of the Whole 30 program and feeling great!! I have lost a total of 10 lbs in the last 10 days. I don't feel deprived or hungry during the day. The funny thing is, I am starting to crave fruits and vegetables!! I will try and keep up on my posting and post at least once per week!! Happy training!!
