I did it.
Sixty minutes straight on the Peloton.
It was kind of by luck, but it happened. I got on the bike thinking I only had 20 minutes before my kids would be up, so I chose to take a Tabata class from Robin to get in a good workout since I didn’t have a ton of time. I finished the class, and the kids were all still asleep, so I started another 20-minute class… and then they were still sleeping when that finished (I’m guessing this is Christmas break recovery), so I decided to take one more 20-minute class to reach 60 minutes on the bike finally.
I was so excited to text Andrew and tell him because he rocks an hour on the bike, and now I can join the club. Now to be brave enough to push start on a 60-minute class;)
Picture hours later when the sweat had all dried.
I can’t tell you how much of a change Beck’s ear tubes have made in his life. This little boy is so much happier now… it has been a night and day difference.
I had my eyebrows dyed and waxed, gotta love the way they look before she wipes them off…
We read our book club book together (there are two members in our book club).
We attempted a major clean-up of the toy room (I wish I had a before and after shot but the after shot looked pretty much the same;)…
We’ve been eating a bunch of these healthy applesauce oat muffins because my kids are in love with them.
PJs by 5 pm… completely normal;)
In yesterday’s Garmin pausing talk… a few of you brought up the fact that after you pause your watch and then start running that you sometimes forget to push start again. I feel that pain deeply. It is the worst, and I hope we all remember from here on out to start our Garmins as soon as we resume running. Let’s make it our 2022 run goal.
PS If you want a review of my Garmin, it is here. I love it so much. I used to have the white Garmin Fenix 6s pro but sold that one and got it in tan because I love the tan color and I had cracked my previous screen. The one I have now is the Garmin Fenix 6s Pro Solar HERE and my review of it is the same as my white one (besides the Solar having a better battery life and scratch-resistant Power Glass which I NEED).
I’ll stick with the Garmin Fenix 6s Pro Solar forever.
I thought today would be a good time to get your help on a topic from a reader:
“I read that you went for a run at noon, and I immediately thought about how I’d spend the whole run peeing myself… and I’ve only had one kid! I can only run first thing in the morning without any liquids or else I’m in trouble. I’m a long-time reader and I don’t think you’ve written before about the pelvic floor after having your babies, or maybe I missed it?… Everyone says “see a PT” and I am doing PT with a specialist but it feels like it’s going to take me a full year to see any real improvement during running and progress is soooo very slow. My son was nearly 10 lbs., had an enormous head and was crowning for a full hour, so maybe that has something to do with my personal circumstances. I did it without any pain medication so it couldn’t have been that bad, LOL.”
I am so glad she asked about this because I would love to learn more about it, and I know that SO many women have struggled with this problem. For some reason, I have never had problems with this besides towards the end of pregnancy a tiny bit, but right after I have the baby, I am fine again. I have done some pelvic floor/deep core workouts that BECKY offers (her account is amazing) after having Beck and Skye, along with a few random pelvic floor workouts I found on Youtube, but that is it! I am pretty clueless on this topic…
I would love it if anyone could share their experience, what helped them the most, and how long it took them to recover! Any experts you love following on this topic?
What watch do you wear and do you love it?
Any big or small fitness accomplishments recently? I would LOVE to hear!
Do you find yourself going to bed earlier in the winter? If the sun is not out, I’m in hibernation mode at night.
