More tag team action at the gym. This time with the Husband, who has the day off from work (wahoo!).
Itâ€™s pretty cool that my gym encourages strollers on the indoor track, but I havenâ€™t seen any other parents making use of it. Itâ€™s too bad because it would be neat to meet another mom at my gym â€“ we could walk together.
The Hus lifted weights while I took the first indoor track shift â€“ Henry and I walked for about thirty minutes. Since I had no one else to chat with, I listened to the Pitbull station on Pandora.
And then we switched. Kristien walked with Henry, and I hit the pool. I only had 10 – 15 minutes to swim because we had to get back home, so I swam as fast as my little arms would carry me. I did 500 yards â€“ the last 100 were super speedy. Relatively, of course.
As mentioned a few days ago, I signed up for a race! Credit card number submitted and everything. Iâ€™m pretty pumped because I love to participate in races but havenâ€™t done any in a while (obviously). Itâ€™s a 5-mile road race in late September. Iâ€™m also eyeing an early August triathlon but need to hop my post-partum booty on a bike prior to registering; not sure how the â€“ ahem â€“ undercarriage will fancy being on a bike. Anyway, regardless of whether my first race back is this 5 miler or a tri, Iâ€™m pretty pumped about the road race because itâ€™s being put on by the Ramblinâ€™ Rose group. They normally host womenâ€™s triathlons and really know how to put on a great event.
Although 5 miles seems QUITE far right now, Iâ€™m sure that, with a bit of dedication, I can get ready over the next few months.
What race is up next for you? Any one else attempting a return to fitness? Whatcha coming back from? Baby, injury, excessive horizontal time on the couch?
