New workout schedule and fingers crossed.

I’ve been back to work for a week and a half now. All in all, it has gone pretty well but it is definitely an adjustment. I would love to go back to hanging out with these two all day.

Now that I don’t have time to workout all dayduring the day, I am lucky enough to be able to squeeze in a workout during lunch at work.

Some people would use this shelf for work related items…I use it for my workout/running accessories.

FYI – I keep the crutch handy because I usually need it every couple of months :-(. It also doubles as a great place to hang things. Thanks Marissa!

My work has a nice and affordable gym for the employees. While I prefer to be out running with my running peeps, I do often stay inside and cross train or take classes. I’m looking forward to Body Pump at noon today. If you haven’t taken body pump (ever or it’s just been a while), go do it. I’ve been back at it for two weeks now and I can definitely see more definition in my arms and legs.

Thankfully, I have also been able to keep up with yoga at least a few times a week. However, I am struggling with feeling guilty about not going straight home after work. I miss Annabelle and I can’t wait to get home to her, but I know that I need to exercise and keep my mind and body healthy in order to be a good mom. No worries, this will no longer be an issue when I win the gazillion dollar power ball :-).

So about a week and a half ago, I went for a glorious #runfree4me run and ran for about an hour. I felt pretty good but felt some tightness in my left cheek…butt cheek. A little later in the evening, it was really painful and I had to modify the way I walked. I could squat and move in other ways just fine, but the walking/running movement was so painful. I’ve been resting it ever since (no running), and it feels a lot better. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I will be all better by the Zooma Annapolis Half on June 1st.

Double fingers crossed…

What do you think?

Do you ever feel workout guilt?

Any races coming up?
