My First Run Post Partum

It’s Friday!

Friday November 21, 2014 to be exact.

Which means I am 6 weeks post partum.

Physical Activity may resume!

BUT first off, I want to say I am sorry I didn’t post earlier today for all you hard core followers. I did sit down to write but then decided I’d rather not. Besides I’m not exactly sure anyone reads this anyway. –> My hard core followers say heeeeey!

Alright back to it.

I headed to work this morning to coach a couple classes and do the workout today, which was a benchmark workout that we do at GPP just a couple times a year. It is a SORE maker for the vets. It can kill a rookie. –> Ok, not really. But it can make walking down stairs really, really, really hard.

So, this being my first workout back at GPP would be a little rough so I modified it like a champ and did squats and pushups with running in place. I didn’t do all the rounds and took it slow.

I also really wanted to run today and so when Brent got home from work I headed to they gym (because its dark, freezing outside and I’m allergic.) For 3 quick miles.

I walked, I ran and I smiled. It felt so good to run. It has been awhile and I can’t really admit I was really looking forward to this run. I do love running but running after a c section isn’t exactly the most enjoyable experience. I talked myself into the 3 miles with no expectations. Heck, I didn’t even think I’d get to 3 miles. I didn’t have to “stay on the treadmill” or “run the whole time.” I ran at a comfortable speed and walked when I wanted. I love running. I do love sweat.

One thing is for sure.

I still love running.
