Let me back up for just a little bit. I feel obligated to let you all know that I only gained 12 pounds during my entire pregnancy...not bad right? I mean, I was carrying like a boss for nine months. And then shortly after Mini Me's arrival I lost it all...and then some (breastfeeding is awesome!). But even though I've lost all of the baby weight, my endurance is shot to hell! I didn't need to hit to track to confirm this fact...the heavy breathing that accompanies my walk up the stairs to my house was confirmation enough. So I've waited 8 weeks, and decided that it was time for me to get back out there, start running again, and begin to rebuild my endurance. As I said earlier, today was the day...and I think I almost died!
|I was by no means in danger of anyone accusing me of looking cute during or after my workout!|
Now, I don't want any of you to feel bad for me. I am totally okay with my performance today. I would have been disappointed in myself if I'd chickened out and didn't even try. So, I will be back on the track tomorrow and I will try again. It's not going to be pretty, but I'm determined. I'll let you know how it goes! Have a great weekend!
