I no longer have to pout and be jealous of all those I see on bikes lately. I got out twice in one week! Today was gorgeous (I'm glad I opted for the sleeveless jersey, my pale skin will NOT get rid of a farmer's tan once I get one), and I did a hilly 20 miles with Bea (first time I've ridden with her since fall of 2007 I think) into NY state. I need a new bike computer, but I LOVED the downhills. I never let myself enjoy them last summer for obvious (pregnant) reasons. And I still managed to pick Andra up by 3:30.
The weather has made a huge impact on my ability to work out. After I pick Andra up from daycare, anywhere between 2:30-3:30 usually, she tends to need some quiet time and often zonks out in my arms for a bit. (I've fallen asleep with her a few times.) Then, we'll head out in the BOB, alone or with Jessica and Kate, for a walk or a run (or a combo). I can't say my intensity is there, but the time is, and it feels good. I'm working out once, maybe twice a week at school at lunch (either lifting or treadmill running). Still going to boot camp on Saturdays. I am happy - the drive to be super intense or run long isn't there, but I think it'll come back this summer when work is out of the picture. I'll work out a part time schedule with daycare so we can keep our spot (this is probably the one summer I won't have to pay for full time even if she's not going full time, but I do need to keep her there some, which ultimately I'm happy about, except for the money aspect). I have all these grand plans about how I'll be able to run, swim, bike and lift all the time. In reality, if I can get in 2 different workouts a day (and an hour long walk will count as one!) I'll be happy. Plus I'm playing on a co-ed soccer team again starting in June which is always fun.
5 more weeks of school, one of which is exam week (meaning, no teaching!).
