Last Sunday, I was able to get to a yoga class at the new studio Yoga Soul in NJ with Yasi, Joe and Craig. I was a little concerned at first when I found out it would be heated, but I think being 17 weeks I am still okay with that. The class was an intense Vinyasa and, with the exception of a couple poses I am not allowed to do, I worked hard and felt good.
I had a great afternoon with my book club peeps at my parents house complete with Barista Tony (DAD) making us super fancy cappucinos :)

Tuesday, I was able to do a light spin for a little over an hour on my trainer while catching up on my shows.
Wednesday was another 90 minute yoga session with Jen. My other prego friend and I are taking a pre-natal yoga class which is just as intense as any other vinyasa. Jen, the instructor is amazing and she comes to our house to do the class so it is catered to what we can and should do.
Thursday, I checked out a new spin instructor and sweated a bit after my strength training session that left my legs sore again on Friday...
Friday - I took a wonderful full rest day which worked out perfectly since I received my winnings from super awesome Ironwoman Hilary Biscay's blog that highlighted my friend Anabel - check out Anabel's amazing story in 3/GO Triathlon The compression socks are perfect as I prevent any swelling in my legs from being pregnant (figure I would get the jump on it.) The jersey is awesome, but will have to wait till next year - although I plan to wear it for the time being before my belly really pops while on the trainer so I still feel cool.
I finished off Saturday with a great run in the crisp cool weather we have been having - my pace has slowed a little but all in all its good. I feel comfortable and have more energy than the first trimester.
Now off to a little date night with the hubby...
