10k update

I figured that I should update you (whoever you are) about my 10k training. I'm still training. I've decided to throw out my training schedule I had and do it my way. I'm going a little (a lot) slower than my original 10k plan. No worries though my race isn't until the end of July. I hadn't really exercised my entire pregnancy. That first day of training kicked my butt. It's hard getting back after just having a baby. But I've improved! I can now run 2 miles and still feel good after! And I've shaved 3 minutes off of my mile! I can also do 30 push ups! They're girl push ups but who cares? You should have seen me on day one! My little arms barely even able to bend more than 2 inches and feeling like my face was about to explode. And now I can do 30 decent ones! I've also lost 14 pounds. Unfortunately, I've still got some poundage to lose... let's just say I had no problem gaining weight during my pregnancy.

so there you have it. go me!
