Good workout weekend

I had a very good weekend of workouts! On Sat I tried a prenatal class at Atma yoga by my house. It was a lot less strenous than I am used to, but was very relaxing and allowed me to focus on all the various part of my body and try to unstress them, which I would never do without someone making me. I think I will try to keep going back up until the pregnancy despite the extra moolah b/c it's nice to be in a room of people in the same situation. I hope to make some friends out of the class b/c I know very few people with infants. In fact I only have 4 people I consider friends (like enough to exchange babysitting, etc) who have kids. 2 have kids under a year and the other 2 have 2 kids each over a year. So, it would be nice to have poeple close by with infants I think. I didn't feel lilke that was enough of a workout, so I headed to the gym and ran 3 miles on the track. It wasn't very comfortable, running while pregnant is just not working out for me like it does for some. I am okay with it. I will keep trying to get some short runs in, I'm going to have to start over when this baby is out either way.

This morning I decided to try an EveryBodies Bootcamp at Urban Active. Since it said all levels welcome I thought it'd be pretty easy. It was hella tough! I had to modified a lot of things like the mountain climbers and bear crawling, but stuck in for the lunges, squats, sprints, skipping around the track, shuffling around the track, jumping over the step gaunlet etc. I think I will keep going back, although I need to make sure it's okay to be hopping around for the baby. I figure it is b/c running is okay and that certainly would jar the baby around. Afterwards I cleaned my house from top to bottom. I had every intention of running outside in this marvelous freak weather, but was unfortunately just way too tired. Now is not the time to try and get back to 2 a days! 12 weeks to go!
