Week 31 – the hard to breathe week

Day 1:  6:00 am  15 minute brisk walk, run to park and one loop around Cadman Plaza park. I can no longer keep up with my client, I’m just too winded too easily with the extra 23 pounds I’m carrying and the Braxton Hicks contractions are very noticeable, they went away when I slowed down, hate to slow down, but it’s only for a couple more months and then running without a belly can begin again. I did two sets of lunges and one set of bench pushups. Ran back 5 minutes.  

7:25   30 minute moderate walk, some stretches

8:25 15 minute brisk walk

Walked around the Museum of Modern Art, carried Mateo from F train station at York street home. Really difficult with all the stairs!  

Day 2:  8:45 am  15 minute brisk walk

11:30 am taught Sling Your Baby™  dance class. Felt good to move in a dance way, but winded!

5:30 pm ran up and down the hall kicking a ball for about 15 minutes or more.

Day 3: 7:00 am  25 minute moderate walk, 40 minute moderate walk, leg stretches,  

8:25 am 15 min. brisk walk

11:30   30 minute brisk walk with stroller, Mateo on scooter.

2:00 30 minute walk with Mateo sleeping in stroller.

5:45 Mateo on scooter and me walking briskly to keep up with him, 10 minutes to park, threw rocks into the water and walked across rocks — good balance exercise, much climbing on the playground equipment and sliding down slides, 10 minute walk back with more balance work while walking on the train tracks that can still be found in our neighborhood streets.

Day 4:   6:45 am –15 minute brisk walk, short run to Columbia Heights hill, one run down and up – definitely a rating of 9 on a scale of one to ten with ten being extremely hard, I was completely out of breath, but it only took about 2 minutes to recover, so not so bad – did two sets of lunges and 2 sets of wall pushups, 10 minute run back, leg stretches.

9:35 am – very brisk 30 minute walk – felt good to do even after the early morning activity.

11:45 am – moderate walk about 20 minutes

Later in day various sprints to catch Mateo, some activity putting together a bookshelf. So winded just all the time, the uterus is squishing my diaphragm muscle and I can’t even sit relaxed or it gets squished and I can’t breathe.

Day 5 : light walking

Day 6: more walking, moderate not very long distances, flew a kite

Day 7:  15 minute walk brisk, 25 minute walk brisk, two more 10 minute walks, stretching,
