So lets back track here for a second. 2 years ago I was on bed rest for about a year, then I spent my time walking with assistance and then finally walking on my own...for the most part.
I started sparks on July 15th this year and started working out in August. Yes, mommy and baby swim 2 times a week for 30 mins and 45 mins of walking on the tread mil one day a week. I did this for 4weeks. Sept. well nothing until this past week.
Monday, walking on the tread mil for for 45 mins. Tuesday, walked a mile and a half...hiked a mile and a half while pushing a stroller...and a toddler. Wednesday, walked for a mile and did 30 mins on the tread mill. Thursday, treadmil for 30 mins. Friday, 5 mins on the bike, 5 mins on the tread mill, 20 mins on the eliptical trainer.
Everyday I went to the gym (except for Friday) I also managed to do weight lifting. Friday I went jogging in the pool for 10 mins and playing in the pool with baby for 20 mins. Tuesday I also walked an extra mile to take the kids to school.
So as you can see, I've gone from working out once a week to working out everyday. I'm super proud of myself but I noticed that on Fridays work out I just felt out of it. I've been dealing with shin splints and just had one heck of a day on Friday. I decided to stay in bed today. Well, I have kids and I can't be in bed all day but I've been sitting up in bed resting my leg and my body.
But it doesn't mean that it's all over for me...
The kids have already started to get ready for another hike which means hopefully 2 miles of pushing the baby in the stroller and then resting for the rest of the day.
I'm feeling better and don't want to fall into that whole "well I need to rest another day" routine. I'm going to work out but just not over do it.

Yesterday was my first day walking while not on the treadmill. Yes, Even though Marie wasn't feeling well, I managed to get her out of the house and walking. We did a 1.5 mile walk on a nature trail while I pushed the 30 lb baby, a gallon of water, a diaper bag and one of those honkin strollers down the dirt path, up the dirt path, up the hill and back down the hill. Everything hurts! I worked up such a sweat, even my kids couldn't keep up! I walked for about 50-55 mins. Normally I do the tread mill and get in about 2. something miles in 45 mins and about a mile and a half in 30 mins. I'm thinking all the up hill motion, luggage and the fact that I had to walk really slow with that stroller going around those turns down hill. Wouldn't want baby down hill! I loved the walk!
