Three Things Thursday

  • Last night, I had my fastest post-baby 3 miler to date: 32:44, for an average pace of 10:53/mile.  And, I had to work HARD for that sub-11 min/mile pace!  One forgets how tough it is to regain stamina and endurance when you've taken some time away from running, but thankfully, those things DO return.  Slowly but surely!
  • Norah had her 2 year old dr. check up today.  She grew an inch and half in the past 3 months, but didn't gain any weight, so she was 34 inches tall and 26 lbs -- average percentiles for both.  She again acted as though the doctor was waterboarding her during the exam, but once she got her Nemo and Dory stickers, she'd already forgotten the torture of having him listen to her heart.
  • We also visited daycare today so we could drop off supplies and let the kids acquaint themselves with their rooms and teachers.  It went well, and Norah wanted to stay so she could continue playing on the playground.  Next Tuesday is the big day for all 3 of us: Back to school!  I'm both dreading and looking forward to it (more on that next week).

Nice job on the run! I'm having a heck of a time getting my pre injury speed back. As soon as I push myself, I seem to hurt myself again.

I bet you'll enjoy getting back into a routine.

You'll get back your stamina. Just don't get frustrated. It does take time.

That's awesome! It's so hard to get back. I'm 5 wks PP and itchin' to run my butt off.

Our kids are about the same ages! Does Nora like her bike? We were thinking of getting Vi one for her 2nd bday.
