I finally made it to the gym last night. I took the kids with me and left them in day care, and put in a solid 4 miles in 49:15. I walked a lot, but when I ran, I ran hard. I did a couple 10ths at 9:00 and 1.1 miles at 10:00 (spaced out in .5 miles and .6 miles), and then I ran some "hills" at 12:00. It felt amazing to finally move and sweat again.
When I finished stretching, I decided I wanted to do some ab work and pushups. So I did plank on my elbows for a minute and a half, then did plank on my hands for 30 seconds. Then I did 5 pushups on my toes and 10 more on my knees. Gonna work on getting the time and number up on both those exercises. Then I flipped over and did 3 minutes of ab work. I'm just a tad sore this morning, so it was a nice amount of work for my upper body. It took just over 5 minutes and I hope to start doing that routine on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, I passed my strep throat back to Sophie. She started getting a sore throat while in kid's club (I feel terrible that she probably passed her germs around to the kids in there) and sure enough, had a fever when we got home. So we went to the after hours doctor and got her an antibiotic. Poor kid, she's missing her class Valentines party (they finally went back to school today after the snow/ice melted a bit yesterday). I swear, I wiped down every surface I could think of when I found out I was sick last weekend, but it didn't help at all. I'm just praying Luke & Mark don't get it next. I wish I could call someone to fumigate our house.
Tomorrow marks the One Year Anniversary of when I joined LA Weight Loss. I'm sure I'll work myself up into an inspiring post in commemoration of the event. Oh, the anticipation!
Hope you all have a lovely Friday.
