Getting my run on.

I’ve done it. I’ve got a new goal. Well, several actually.

Goal #1 – Don’t go completely jello-like during this pregnancy. Get back to exercising regularly so cardiovascular health and stamina is kept at tolerable levels.

Goal #2 – Make time for myself after the baby is born to get exercise in. This is of course easier said than done when you have two children wanting your attention plus a third infant child who demands your attention. Luckily with Kris home during the days on my 12 week maternity leave I should be able to carve out 1/2-1 hour 3-4 times a week for myself. It’s when I go back to work after the 12 weeks that it will really be a struggle. Ugh.

Goal #3 – Get into good enough shape to race in the 2010 Minneapolis Duathlon on August 29th, 2010. I officially signed up yesterday. (Use the code Champ2 by 11/6/09 and get $4 off the registration fee plus a free bike jersey!!) Kris has a bike jersey already and they are super cool. They’re pretty and I want one too! So now I have one. Well, I’ll have one after they ship it to me. Plus I ordered a medium which is what I fit into in August when I tried one on at packet pick up for the 2009 Minneapolis Duathlon. Now, I’m not going to kill myself to lose enough baby weight to get back down in my medium jersey by the duathlon next summer. But it will be a goal of mine to eventually lose the baby weight and be back in it for the 2011 duathlon. It’s good to have goals, right?

So, those are my goals. Now go sign up for the race so we can all do this together! (A couple friends have already signed up. Kris will sign up and my brother is excited to come to Minnesota to do it as well. The more the merrier! Come on! Do it! Peer pressure!!!)
