Happy Friday

Yesterday, I ran outside. 
I am working my way through the couch to 5K, again. My knee is holding, so far.  It was a beautiful cold day here, so I bundled up the little one in the BOB and head outside. We hit a local paved trail and I turned on my app, it felt good to run outside instead of on the treadmill and actually felt easier. I love the treadmill, but after yesterday I think I will try to run outside more. If forgot how good it feels to run in the fresh air.
When we got home it was time to do my weight workout, my white board is handy for keeping me on track and counting each workout. This week I switched workouts to the green checks.

Sadly, I was only able to get through 3 rounds before little miss decided she needed my attention.  Look how big she is getting, having a pack and play in the garage is a handy.

One thing for sure, I can tell my legs are already starting to get stronger, as the back to back squats aren't nearly has hard as before. I have been using 10lb weights and feel strong. I need to pick some 12.5 ups as we only have 15lbs and I am not ready for that yet.  For now, I will just keep moving forward slowly.

Happy Friday!


  1. She looks like a dolly!
    I think moving forward slowly is a great plan. I do much prefer the weights first then run afterwards, though. I find it much harder the other way around.
    I didn't move up in weights until I was getting close to 5 circuits for each workout. Those 12.5 are waaaayyyy heavier than the 10s, haha.

  2. Great job! It is tough to get out with a little one, good for you :)
