Fitness Update

I have been slowly returning to my pre-pregnancy fitness level.  From 6 weeks post-partum I have been walking about 3 miles twice a week.  Slowly I upped the days from 2 to 3.  It felt great to be doing something physical again after 7 months of inactivity.

In February I started CrossFit twice a week.  This is in addition to the walking.  So, some swort of physical activity 5 times per week.  I kept walking while my body was slowly adjusting to the intense CrossFit workouts.

Cross Fit.  I haven't jumped rope in YEARS!

I have started running about once per week for the last couple of weeks.  I have been doing intervals of 3:1.  Three minutes of running and one minute of walking.  At first, it was pretty hard, but with each workout I am getting better.

My friend is preparing for a half-marathon, so I am upping my mileage as she does.  I was able to do 6 miles this week!  I am siked up!  I easily transitioned from three up to six.  It must be the CrossFit workouts that are helping.

I love that I am able to get back into my routine of working out, even with having the baby.  She is a good sleeper in the mornings, so I am able to keep her with me and still get my workouts done.  I am so thankful for that!

Working out is one thing that I do just for me.  I do a lot for others, especially my children.  Working out helps me reduce my stress, and feel better about myself.

Do you exercise?  Do you enjoy it?
