And we’re off!
Its been one whole week since my #miles4MAMA challenge began. I wasn’t sure how out of the ordinary 10, 000 steps a day or 25 miles a week, would be, I hoped I was already completing that just by walking dog (I wish) but it turns out I wasn’t. My usual route was just under the 4 miles mark so I’ve had to really up my game. It’s been great getting going though, and luckily the weather played ball so I managed to complete 26 miles for the whole week meaning I’m slightly above target, woohoo!
Toddler and I trekked over the Jurassic Coast on several occasions, jogging where possible but I’ll be completely honest here, it was more of a power walk as I’m still nervous after suffering with SPD during my last pregnancy so I’m taking it slow, if there’s one thing I learnt while I was immobilized for a few weeks and on crutches, it’s to look after your body and know your limits. Our fitness kit is superb and thanks to my Mountain Buggy as well as our sling I’ve been really eager to get out and about.
I’s also like to thank everyone who left their support in the comments last week, it’s so encouraging to know I’m not doing this lone ranger and I hope by spreading the MAMA Academy word we’re all raising awareness of this amazing charity. Please do join in, donate, or just share this post. By doing so you’ll be helping towards the Team MAMA’s Made to Measure and the #miles4MAMA challenge to save 1000 babies from still birth.
