The week started off fantastic with a intense yoga session to stretch me out for the week ahead. Tuesday morning I woke up at 4:30 a.m. to run 3 miles. At this time of the morning or I call it night (because it's pitch black outside) I am still half asleep even though I had just woken up at 2 a.m. to feed Olive. Running half asleep is never a good idea because you aren't paying attention to your feet moving and might end up like I did kissing the concrete where my feet should have been running! I stood up with a growl of "that hurt" and finished in 28 minutes. I woke up every morning before 6 a.m. to run before the sun came up and every day presented either a hill challenge or head games I had to play with myself just to finish running, like my 4 mile run on Sunday.
I had to take two days off because the torn ligament in my left ankle was screaming at me but that ended up being a wise decision so that I could do my long run on Sunday.
These days I am LOVING my Born Fit running skirt.
It has this amazing pocket on the shorts that holds my car key and my phone and I can't even feel it!
13 miles down for this week and not feeling energized at all BUT every week I will get stronger/perform better and look better.
Side Note: I went down a size after running this week! I'd rather be a 14 than a 16 any day and say good bye baby belly!
