When the weekend hit and we were blessed with beautiful weather, I knew I had to take advantage of the opportunity and go for it!
Jason worked nights over the weekend, so we headed out for a walk on Saturday while he was still sleeping. Madalynn, Brayden, and I enjoyed a nice brisk 2 mile walk and by the time we returned, Jason was awake!
He sure looks good in Navy and Orange, IMO! :)
Such a gorgeous day!
After returning the clan home, I ventured out for an additional 2 mile walk on my own. I even attempted a light jog (think like 10 seconds at a time), but that wasn't comfortable so I stopped. The walk was really nice because I was able to take it at my own pace and not one dictated by contractions, bladder spasms, or heart rate issues.
It honestly feels really nice to have my body back (well, somewhat)!
This little girl was whining after my second return home, so we went out for a little venture of our own! She helped round out the last portion of my four mile walk. :)
On Sunday, I decided to take the bike out for a little spin. My sister in law mentioned an upcoming bike "race" that sounded interesting to me, but I hadn't been on the bike in a LONG while, so I decided to test it out!
Overall, it wasn't bad at all....although my legs did burn which felt really NICE for a change! I managed to go 5.25 miles around my neighborhood at a a decent little pace (for me).
If we end up doing the bike ride, I think things will go really well!
All I need now is a helmet and I'll be all set! :)
I cannot wait to get back to running, but that will take a bit longer - I'm still taking it one day at a time over here! :)
If you've ever been pregnant or taken a hiatus from fitness, how was your return to it?
