Last Saturday marked 6 weeks postpartum and I “celebrated” by going for a run…my first run in almost a year! Anyways, I decided I am going to run at least 2 or 3 times a week from here on out and keep a running log on my blog each Friday. I’m starting off with slow, easy runs of about 25 minutes in length. I’ll increase my time as my endurance improves.
Combined with all the walking I do living life in a walking everywhere city and workout videos I attempt to fit into my week, I will have a lot of physical fitness worked into my week.
Running, Week 1 (Saturday, May 29th – Friday, June 4th)
1. Saturday, ran 25 minutes…felt surprisingly good
2. Tuesday, ran 25 minutes…started off feeling good but, due to the heat, felt awful by the end
3. Thursday, ran 20 minutes in the evening. It felt good to run in the cool, night air but won’t do this often for safety’s sake.
*Goal for tomorrow: to get up and meet up with local running group at 8am. We’ll see!;)
Dear readers: any other runners out there want to share your tips on how you motivate yourself to get out the door? Any motivating songs I should put on my ipod?
