Preggo Week 13 Recap
This week, I started my training plan for CIM. I'm following a marathon plan from Matt Fitzgerald's book "80/20 Running: Run Strong and Race Faster by Training Slower". This is a HR training plan where you mostly run slow, keeping HR in lower zones. I think this is the best training plan for me to do while pregnant. I don't have to worry about pace and just run by heart rate.
I was able to consistently get my weekday runs on the treadmill in the evenings after putting Ellie to bed. It's nice to get back into a routine of running again. I'm still tired, especially when I get home from work. But, I've been making myself stick to the plan. And as always, I feel better and more energized after my runs. :)

I'm still doing the C25k plan. My three runners are doing great and look like they're ready for their 5k in a couple weeks!
Other than that, I've been enjoying watching the Olympics. Watching track and field has been exciting. I really enjoyed watching the women's marathon. They talked about how it was the biggest women's field ever. I'm glad to see more inspiring women runners. I had Ellie watch with me, hoping she'll get a little inspiration. ;-)
