Current Workouts

I had huge plans to run far into my pregnancy this time around. With Avery I had to quit running cold turkey to GET pregnant so running was kept a minimum and I called it quits at 7 months. Well as it turns out my body is not wanting to run much any more and as much as my mind wants to my baby and body come first. So I wanted to talk more about what I am doing these days!

Running

So I am taking this day by day, right now a 4-6km run happens once a week with 4 minutes run, 1 minute walk. I cannot say I am too sad about this since I will mostly being pregnant in the winter and running inside is not really appealing and running on ice outside is not safe.

21 Day Fix

You guys know I am a huge fan of all the Beachbody workouts. This week I joined a friend & Beachbody Coach,(Priscilla – find her blog here!) with a challenge group for 21 Day Fix. I love the idea of doing the program with a group to keep my motivation up and this way you have others to talk to and exchange thoughts and ideas with. My goal is 4 days a week for these workouts right now.

Spin

With the absence of running I needed a cardio fix so when a friend invited me to join her at a new to me spin studio (My Revolution) last week I jumped on it. Needless to say I loved it and am planning to go weekly now. I am hoping this is something my body likes for at least a few more months!

Yoga

Oh yoga! I go to lunch classes weekly and love that my studio (The Breathing Room) is a short walk away from my work. I did prenatal yoga with Avery and right now am planning on not going this time and just modifying at regular classes since it works better with my schedule. I still am loving flow classes that keep me moving. I have looked up some modifications to do as the belly grows as well.

    Thanks for the shoutout! I'm glad you're listening to your body and not pushing yourself to run more than your body wants you to right now. I know how much you love running and can imagine it's hard not to be able to, but so proud of you for taking it easy 🙂 I love the combo of workouts you've been doing, they sound perfect for pregnancy! I really need to find a yoga studio near me, my plan is to start my search at the beginning of next year 🙂

    I'm loving rotating through a lot of my beach body workouts and adding a spin class in here and there. Im just waiting to get back to hot yoga- not sure if it should attempt it while I'm still breastfeeding!

    One day I will join you at spin. I'm currently aiming for one lunch run and one yoga class, plus Sunday run and the odd strength workout here or there. I need to make it to spin soon!

    You're doing awesome! I quit all forms of workout when I got pregnant even though I thought I'd be one of those super active pregnant women, haha! I was so tired and the low blood pressure didn't make me want to exercise ever! 😉

    Hahaha I totally agree with the above commenter who says she has a love/hate relationship with spin. It's such an amazing workout and makes me absolutely drip sweat but I also kind of don't like it. I just find the classes drag by and it's always sooo hard to get myself there but I'm always happy when I do it!

    I taught spin until 35 weeks pregnant. It is definitely something you can keep up throughout pregnancy because you can just modify it and lower your resistance/rpm's! So cool you joined a Challenge Group – hope you enjoy! They are awesome to help keep you accountable and motivated!
