One of the biggest things I miss while pregnant is training, whether it is for a race or a fitness program I seem to crave it even more when pregnant – you always want what you cannot have 😉
Making plans while still pregnant not only makes me excited but also holds me accountable to get moving after I am cleared by my doctor. As it looks right now, this should be early to mid May if my c-section recovery goes well, with Avery I was cleared about 5 weeks after having her.
I have two main plans for post-baby:
1- Do a 60 day Beachbody program, I am eyeing up the new Hammer and Chisel program right now. I think a program like this would keep me motivated daily and accountable. Plus I know these programs work! The workouts are 30-40 minutes each so something I know is realistic for me as well.
2 – Run a half marathon in 2016. My running will most likely come back ASAP since it is also my sanity but I am looking for a fall race so that I have a lot of training time and can adjust as needed with the two kiddos. I am not sure I will have much of a time goal for this race, but just to get back into training and have fun of course! Call me crazy but I am already dreaming of running with the two kids in tow this summer! We have a double chariot already but I am working on convincing Chad on also getting a double BOB – a girl can dream, right?!
I have FINALLY chosen my race and will be registering in a couple weeks once registration is open, in September I am running the Canmore Half Marathon! I am pretty excited since I love Canmore and it is fairly local to travel to for a few days with my family.
I also really want to run the Victoria Half Marathon in October but being only a month later that might be the smartest thing and I am not sure how much fund we will have to travel being on maternity leave. So for now that is on the side lines.
Short and simple post-baby fitness plans for this year. At the end of the day I just want to feel good and have energy to be a mom and wife and I know doing these things will help me a ton 🙂
