Running is coming along. Officially 11 weeks after the birth of Mira. I'm able to run about 5 days of the week, usually 3-4 miles each. My longest run was 6 miles last Saturday. Not sure what my fastest run has been, I guess it's about time to start wearing a Garmin again and see where I actually am. I do know I'm quicker when Brooke or Brady pushes the stroller! ;-)
Last night I decided I would try to tag along with Brady and Robert for their run - which can be fast even when I'm in shape. I hung with them for a little over a mile then opted to take the stroller and slow into a more comfortable pace for the final 2 miles. They are planning to do these runs more often. I'm planning to try to hang with them longer each time until I can run the whole distance WHILE pushing the stroller! :-)
For now I'm happy to be back out on the roads. Eventually I'll regain speed and possibly a more consistent running schedule (right now I try to run mornings, but when Mira doesn't cooperate we push it off till noon or even after work).
This weekend will be my first test - a 5K Saturday night. It will be my first since the one I ran the day I went into labor. My goal at this point is only to beat that time, especially since I'll be pushing an adorable baby in a rocking stroller.
