Well, April wasn’t much better than March for me. I did, however, finally complete my first outdoor run since having Hudson. I didn’t keel over, so it was definitely a success.
That run was one of five workouts that I completed this month. Yep, only one more workout than last month. It is what it is, you guys. Since there are only a few, I’ll break each of them down for you. Prepare to be underwhelmed.
Running: This was my first outdoor run since the baby, and I managed to make it 3 miles deep into my neighborhood before crashing and burning. I walked home.
Walking: I lasted on the treadmill for 2.5 miles, alternating between running and incline walking. I’ll go ahead and admit there was way more walking involved.
Lower Body: Squats, lunges, and deadlifts took place. I’ve missed weight training, so this was actually a really fun workout. I’ll leave out the part where I couldn’t walk the next day.
Upper Body: I paired bicep curls, shoulder presses, tricep dips, and a few other things with 2 miles of random sprints. I say “other things” and “random sprints” because I honestly can’t remember what I did.
Total Body: I used the Nike Training app for a total body workout. Y’all, that was the first time I’ve purposely done any ab work and I’ve never felt so weak in my life.
Oh, and just for fun, this is the text I sent Ryne after bragging on Instagram that I had actually gone for a run. I couldn’t have run another step if a rabid bear was chasing me.
I’m hoping to complete my fit test tonight, but I’m definitely playing that one by ear. We’ve got to be up bright and early in the morning, so I may end up choosing sleeping over sweating. Cross your fingers that I make the right call, y’all.
