Today I took the nut out for a little walk. Yesterday and today were very mild for this time of year (~40 degrees) and sunny so I didn't want to pass up the opportunity to get outside today. He wasn't so keen on the trip--he made his I'm-not-sure-what-I-think-of-this-but-I-think-I-might-hate-it-and-start-crying-any-second-now-face until he finally started to cry. I made sure he got a little vitamin D and some fresh air and then I let him off the hook and took him back home to cuddle.
Yesterday, though, I got out on my own--well with GP, but no peanut. We did another great 10 miler on a beautiful sunny morning. We kept the pace nice and easy and I felt great the whole time, even better than last week. Last week I slowed down my running on the treadmill and by the time Friday came around and I could get outside I felt very fresh and my outdoor miles were faster yet felt easier than the prior weeks. Here are the numbers:
M: 4 on the mill 9:30's
T: 6 on the mill 9:30's
W: 4 on the mill 9:30's
F: 8 hilly miles outside while m-i-l watched peanut (9:01)
Sa: another 8 hilly miles outside while mrp hung out with peanut (9:09)
Su: 10 hilly miles with GP (9:18)
Total: 40 miles!
In other news I'm down to 145 lbs. That means 18 more to go to my goal and 13 to pre-pregnancy weight. I still can't fit into anything though! UGH. My middle is all mushy and muffin-tops over everything. I never really had that problem. It stinks. But, but! I am hopeful that I will get back in shape. Before I had peanut I told everyone I wasn't going to weigh myself until my birthday. 3 days after my birthday peanut will be 6 months old. If I just relax, I should be pretty close to normal by then. I hope!
