Body Pump

This past week was interesting. If you follow me on Instagram (@heatherrunsfast), you’ll know I started running more this past week. I kind of went from 0-60, but eh, whatever, haha. Here’s the rundown- get it 😉 Sunday: 4 miles @ 8:35 on the treadmill Monday: 8 miles @ 8:21 pace with Jolene in the AM outside Tuesday: 6 miles @ 8:35 on treadmill Wednesday: 9 miles @ 8:21 on the tread in the AM Thursday: Body Pump!!!! I am SO happy to be back at it. I’ve missed this class so much! Friday: 9 miles @ 8:00 outside in […]

Wellllll Helllooooo There! Yes, yes I know… It has been forever since I posted. It honestly doesn’t feel like a month has passed, but it has. My apologizes. Life took over one again and blogging got put on the back burner. Get ready for picture overload. Here are some happenings to catch you up… Running has resumed and I am in my happy place! I’ve been running anywhere from 4-8 miles and plan on increasing my long run by one mile each week to ramp up for marathon training. Thaaaaaat’s right. I said marathon training. Not sure which one yet, […]

I shared with you guys my Running Comeback Plan, which was a loose explanation of my start back into running and my bigger plans. I’m excited to say that I have actually been working toward those goals by incorporating more workout type running. Back before we started this pregnancy journey, I used to post my workouts while I was marathon training. I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to do that now, as I’m not really hard core training, but will be doing more than just easy runs. I just don’t want to bore you, haha. I’m thinking I’ll […]

So here we are, at the end of week 33. I think it’s about time for a recap on the past few weeks. Check out my previous preggo recaps:  weeks 1-7, weeks 8-12, weeks 13-16, weeks 17-20, weeks 21-24, and weeks 25-28. Weeks 29-30 were spent in Australia, which, no surprise here, I still owe you a recap on the Cairns and Melbourne parts of our trip. Weight Gain= I gained 17 lbs as of 28 weeks. Wk 29- 0, Wk 30- 1, Wk 31- 1, Wk 32- 1, Wk 33- 2. Total by 28 weeks: 22 lbs. Right on target for the 1lb a […]

Weekend Happenings

Look at me writing consistent posts 😉 After a perfectly busy week- you know, the kind where you have just enough time to get stuff/work/life done but still have a few seconds to relax- we had a low key weekend and I’m ready to tackle the last week in October. Can’t believe how quick time is flying… I guess we always say that huh?! As of Saturday, I’m 31 weeks pregnant and kicked it off with a great Body Pump class. I got this shirt at Old Navy on sale for like $5 and I LOVE IT! I’m all about the fierceness. […]

Soooooo, These Things Happened…

HAPPY MONDAY ladies and gents! I am sick of the heat and rain, but I guess things could be worse. I actually don’t have a case of the Monday’s, so there’s another thing to be happy about. Let’s hope this week flies by and we’re enjoying the weekend again 🙂 I took another Saturday Body Pump class. My mom came and it was a good time. Again, I was rocking the Body Pump Bump (as Stephanie would call it 😉 It’s getting biiiiggggeerrrr. Always have my NUUN around when I’m working out to keep mom and baby hydrated. Speaking of getting […]

Pregnancy: Weeks 17-20 with a Weekly Workout Recap!

Let’s take a look at my pregnancy during weeks 17-20. Here are my previous updates: weeks 1-7, weeks 8-12, and weeks 13-16. Weight Gained: At 16 weeks I had gained 8 lbs. 17 wks +0 lb,  18 wks + 1lb , 19 wks + 1 lb and by 20 weeks I gained 11 lbs total. Symptoms: My boobs aren’t sore anymore but they are huge! I always thought I’d want a boob job after having kids (since I hear it can make them saggy) but I’m seriously considering otherwise now, haha. Sleeping has become a guessing game. Some nights are great, while others […]

Saturday and Sunday Sentences

Saturday I love Body Pump. We stop at everything that could be hiding a lizard. Finally got my hair did. Got hungry on the way home from Trader Joe’s and busted into an avocado with a plastic spoon. Riley stared me down for 5 minutes (no joke, she sat there just.like.that) because I was withholding a treat from her. Sunday The best run. OK, this needs more than one sentence. I seriously had the best run I’ve had in a long time. I met up with a new friend, Stephanie, for 7 miles and it was like we were old […]

. Thinking Out Loud .

I’m linking up with Amanda for her “Thursday’s are for thinking out loud” posts. I figured, it’s kind of like my fave confession posts, so I’m gonna roll with it. * I made a huge batch of lentils over the weekend and I’m afraid they’ll go bad. Actually, I know they won’t go bad, because I NEVER waste food. I think I’m just afraid I’ll get bored with them. You can’t eat too much of them right?! I mean, they are a perfect protein/carb food. * Body Pump 92 was released this week at my Y (it was superhero themed) and […]

Scatterbrained Saturday

Happy Weekend Folks! I’ve got a bunch of randomness for you today. My weekend started off with a girls night Friday. These nights usually consist of wearing PJs, drinking wine, munching on some kind of food and being silly. Last night, we had cheese, salami, nuts and crackers. Perfect wine pairing! After I publish this post, I’ll be headed to the Y for my normal Saturday routine… Body Pump, followed by a nice run outside. Part of the trail I run on passes by the Y and now that my long runs are only 6 miles, I don’t make it […]
