Moving


The last time I remember having a real running routine was the summer after I graduated from High School.

I'll let that sink in for a moment.

So here I am, 11 years later, running on a treadmill in my basement. I don't really know what I'm doing, but I think I kind of like it. With Kev working a lot of hours again, I can't get outside to run in the cooler hours (because he's not here to be with Aspen) so I run at night while Aspen sleeps.

My only problem with running is that EVERYTHING JIGGLES. Let's be honest. Even with the runner's high afterward, there's nothing that makes the jiggling enjoyable. Places that used to be toned thanks to teaching 6 Yoga classes a week are no longer toned. And that sucks.

But I'm doing what I can to keep moving this body. Aspen and I are biking a lot. I'm still hosting the occasional Yoga practice at my home (in addition to personal practice throughout the week). I'm running on the treadmill 20 minutes a few nights every week.

And I guess it's good to get used to running on the treadmill first. Otherwise being stuck on it during the winter would be even worse. I just wish Maddie wouldn't stare at me warily the whole time I run. It's very unsettling.

What are you doing lately to stay active? You can join me tomorrow at 730 for a Yoga practice in my backyard if you'd like!

  1. You're not alone, everything jiggles on me too. I'm loving taking early morning bike rides before Russ leaves for work these days.

    1. I thought about taking an early ride one morning last week, but as soon as I rolled over to get out of bed I heard Aspen wake up. FAIL.

  2. That's great good for you! We walk daily a mile loop around our neighborhood. Running is off and on for me unfortunately.

    1. Taking the girls and the dog(s) with you on a walk is probably the equivalent of going for a run sometimes!

  3. I wish I could come over for some yoga, but I'd have to hop on a plane. ;) Glad to see you getting back into running. I go in and out of it (depending on how bad it hurts my knees). These days I lift weights and do pilates to stay active.

    1. I almost feel guilty for what I'm doing to my joints when I run. But the overall effect is kind of worth it since my body is falling apart anyway!
