Following the run.

Based on how excited I was to go on my first post-baby run, you would probably think that I would have followed it up by going for more runs. Or, at least, another one.

Yeah, not quite. You see, I'm easing back but, honestly, even I didn't think I would ease back this slowly. I had every intention of running on Monday (after taking Sunday off). My plan for easing back was to run every other day. Seems reasonable, right?

Well, Monday came and before I knew it, Monday went. No run. I had company in the morning and then work to do in the afternoon. We were supposed to have company in the evening, but they cancelled. Unfortunately, too late for me to re-jig my plans and get out for a run.

No big deal, really, except that I couldn't run yesterday, either. So, I made the most of the day and took Niall out for a 2-mile power walk. Not quite the same as a run, but it was a beautiful day so I was happy to be outside enjoying it.

I was even more happy to be enjoying it while wearing my pre-pregnancy running clothes! (Gloating, yes, it's true . . . although I shouldn't gloat too much because I'm not yet back into my regular jeans, just my heavy jeans.)

What will today bring? I'm hoping I get a run in, but that may not be in the cards. I'm quickly learning that flexibility is the name of the game when you have a preschooler and an infant. So, I'll just have to be flexible. That may mean going for power walks instead of runs, running on the treadmill instead of hitting the roads, or lifting weights instead of doing anything else. I'll take what I can get!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

FANTASTIC that you can wear your pre-preggo running clothes already! You'll be back in those jeans in no time!

That is so awesome you are able to fit into your pre-pregnancy running clothes! Glad you were able to get out to enjoy this nice weather we are having! A walk isn't a run but it is better than nothing!

I am so jealous that you fit in your pre pregancy clothes already. That is awesome.

I am a mom of 4 (9 and under) and I have so many people ask "How do you run on the treadmill?" Umm, dont think I wouldnt rather be outside but sometimes (most of the time) that is the ONLY way that I can get my runs in. Some how we manage.

You will and do great!!!!

Great attitude. It's something that you love, so you'll get back into running. But flexibility is key!
