Back to the Grind

[ 3 ] Comments

So, today was my first day running since having Caleb. (And my first time running in about a year!) I had intended on getting started about a week after he was born, to get in shape enough to run the See Jane Run half-marathon. Hmm. That was probably the most ambitious/ridiculous goal ever. I wasn’t expecting to have a c-section again, and I had no idea how much more tired I would be with a newborn and 2 5-year-olds.

So, 3 months later, here I am. I’m not even close to being able to run a half marathon, so I signed up to run the 5K instead. A much more attainable goal for 4 1/2 weeks of training. I ran about 1 1/2 miles this morning. (Which sounds so little to me… ) But you have to start somewhere again, right? And Caleb did great too! So, here’s to many, many more runs!

    Um, let me just say, 1.5 miles after not running for a year, and after having a baby 3 months ago is pretty amazing! That is inspiring! Way to go!

    I am proud of you! C sections are hard when it comes back to getting in shape! I think a mile and a half sounds great! I started 2 weeks ago and I can do 2 miles, run a lap walk a lap style so you’re smashing me 🙂 Way to go!
