I wonder how many more weekly workout posts I will have? I have talked a little about my post baby fitness plans, but being as I have never had a baby before they are fairly loose.
Right now I know I am giving my body at least 6 weeks off to heal. My plan is start up a workout routine in the new year if all is a-okay to do so. I am hoping that plan includes half marathon training for May. Between when Baby K makes her appearance and the new year I will take it day by day, maybe there will be some walks in there and light weights but maybe not. Like I said I have no idea what to expect and therefore little expectations.
With my extra time this week I am doing smaller, easier workouts each day.
Sunday – 30 minute treadmill walk. Chest & Triceps – same as usual.
Monday – 3km treadmill walk (just over 30 mins) – to change things up I simply increase the incline every 5 minutes, then back to zero incline for the cool down. Biceps and Shoulders.
Tuesday – 3km treadmill walk – kept it easier at walked between 3-3.4mph. Upper back, 2 sets of 12 of: Dumbbell Shoulder Shrug (10lbs), Fireman Row (10lbs), in between each exercise I did cat-cow stretches which feels awesome on my (poor) back these days.
Wednesday – 75 minutes prenatal yoga class.
Thursday – 30 minutes treadmill walk and the “Perfect Prenatal Circuit Workout” from Fit Pregnancy
Friday – 3km treadmill walk with incline climb and legs day.
Saturday – Rest day.
Plans for today include:
– Cleaning out my kitchen cupboards
– Taking clothes to Plato’s Closet
– Taking my brother to school
– Stopping by my work – to kill time since my brother’s class is only an hour
– Making a freezer meal
– If time – making lactation cookies (source), working on design stuff for a friend’s baby shower and web stuff for my Mom.
Enjoy your Wednesday!
Random questions today: What is your favorite type of cookie? Would you choose cake, a cookie or pie if you had to choose one?
Plain old chocolate chip cookies are my favourite and I would choose cookies for sure. Not a cake or a pie fan.
