I am definitely, absolutely struggling with my body right now. I am flustered about the fact that I am growing in the middle despite crosstraining (2x), running (4x - 25-30 miles per week), and lots of yoga, stretching and sleep. I know that it means I am growing a healthy baby, and I am PROUD of that, but it definitely does not make things any easier for something who has frequently been a little bit too intently watching her body. And I am definitely struggling with it, but I am also continuously reminding myself that I am doing the right thing for my body by continuing to train it, eating LOTS of healthy, nutrient dense foods (and some fun foods too!), and allowing it to grow.
Despite my internal struggles, I have been working hard to knock out some miles. On Monday, after work, I hammered through my 3 #milesofshame for the 49ers Super Bowl loss in the Pavement Runner's contest. Yesterday was pseudo-speedwork. I did a ladder workout on the treadmill.
I also made this smoothie for breakfast for J and I.
I also did a short and sweet plank this morning.
How are your runs coming along? Anyone training for Spring races?
