Last night I went for another 3 miler, and my stats were like so:
Mile 1: 11:34
Mile 2: 11:28
Mile 3: 12:02 (clearly, a little tired)
Total Time: 35:00
Right now, my primary goal with running is simple: Run 3 miles every other day at a comfortable pace until I begin to feel stronger and ready to run faster and farther. I have my 6 week check up next week, and I hope that after I get the "all clear," I can begin to think about choosing a few year end races to help provide some larger purpose to the running.
In other news, Jerry and I have both come down with the cold that Norah had last weekend. It's nothing major, and aside from a runny nose, I don't feel too bad; however, I will say that sneezing has taken on a whole new dimension now after giving birth. Let's just say that those "girl" muscles haven't fully regained their pre-birth strength yet, and when I sneeze, I feel as though I should first seat myself on the toilet.
Oy vey, these are not the things they tell you about when people try and trick you into how great it is to have a baby!
