Technically I’m almost 22 weeks now but here is my 20 week belly:
I’m so excited to be over half way through with this pregnancy, I don’t have really difficult pregnancies I just hate being pregnant. I’m a big whiner I know!;) I cannot run as hard or fast as I like but I’m grateful to still be running, and I feel the longer I run the easier the comeback will be after.
I have to modify a lot of workout moves, but I’m just happy to still be moving. Here is what we did today:
8 minute warm up jog
Pyramid sprints to 8
Speed ladder Drills
Partner Plank jumps
and lastly a 20 minute circuit with these moves:
Squat to overhead press
Heisman over cones
Jumping lunge through Speed ladder
Reverse lunge with weights
Plank tap on step
Do each station for 1 minute before moving on to the next move. Repeat one more time. (We only took about a 5 to 10 second break between each move.)
Here is a fun look back at my growing twin belly. I can’t tell much of a difference when comparing this belly to my twin belly at 20 weeks.
Well that was a long break from blogging! I wish I was better at blogging and time management for that matter, but life has just been too crazy. We found out we are expecting a baby in April, and it’s a….
I’m so glad she is healthy and doing well, but we were really hoping for a boy, since this is our last child we will be having. I know that might sound a little selfish to some, but I guess I always pictured having two of each, oh well. We did not get pregnant just to have a boy, we have always wanted a big family and she is wanted.
I want to talk more about the pregnancy in a later post but for now onto the workouts,
I have still been running and I’m almost 20 weeks, wahoo! This is longest I have run during a pregnancy and I couldn’t be more excited. I have had a lot more ligament pain which has caused me to slow down, but I’m determined to run as far into the pregnancy as possible. My average pace is around 8:30, and slowing every week:( But that is ok. I took almost a full year off because of the twins and came back to set two personal records. I’m convinced pregnancy is a great break for my body:)
Monday’s run was hard, must have been all the turkey and pie;) 5 miles on my treadmill:
Tuesday we did bootcamp and I love stealing other people ideas:
This was a good workout. My hips were feeling it though, I have to modify quite a bit. We added pyramid sprints to 7 to the beginning and did 30 second sprints in between each set. I was sweating a lot.
It’s amazing how those moves from elementary school can kill your adult body, and make you feel so old!
