Bit by Bit

These days, an 11 minute mile seems pretty fast to me, so imagine my delight when I ran 2 of my 3 miles in just a smidgen under 11 minutes last night:

Mile 1: 11:17
Mile 2: 10:59
Mile 3: 10:59

Total Time: 33:16

So far, that's my fastest post-baby 3 miler! Slowly, I'm regaining small increments of speed.

I ran the last 4 days in a row, so I'm taking a rest day today, and tomorrow perhaps I'll try to put morning running into action.

Well done. It takes time, don't rush it. 2 weeks ago I paced my friend Meredith at the Delaware 100, which she was attempting just 17 weeks after giving birth. It isn't easy getting back to pre-pregnancy form.

Thanks to your blog title, I now have an old Wiggles tune in my head. Thanks.

Slowly but surely you'll get less slow. Enjoy the rest. I still don't agree with this morning run business. Cheers!
