The last few runs this week have been really good. I’m just so surprised at how much easier my runs are getting but the memory of how tough running pregnant was is still vivid! Yet, each time I hit the pavement it seems to be a little bit better; today I surprised myself when I got under six (6) minutes a kilometre for my intervals. Y’all know that all along I’ve not been too hung up on time, but the fact that I can see even the slightest improvement keeps me on track.
The only thing I’m really struggling with is exercising five days a week. My training has me running four and I’m supposed to cross-train the fifth day. I just can’t get my shit together to do this. Is it because I’m getting old? Or am I just making excuses? Seriously. I really had to think about it. I even talked to a doc about it. She said, “Kat. You are still recovering from having a baby. A TRAUMATIC experience. Give yourself time.” But really. Am I just being lazy? So many people just snap back to their regular running routines… anyway – interested to hear how other postpartum gals got back into their grooves. Am I just being impatient?
