Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

First 7 Miler post pregnancy

Today was NOT the ideal day to do this. But I had already set a goal and the weekend weather didn't look much better. At 5:00am today it was 83 degrees with 70% humidity which made it feel like 89.

My phone won't fit in the pouch for my water bottle belt, and with the conditions I thought I really needed my phone with me in case I needed help.

Around mile 2, I really just wanted to stop. It was miserable, but I kept moving. I made sure that I ran away from the car so that at 5 miles I was no where near where I had parked.

This wasn't pretty, and I sweated more than I think I ever have. But I did it. I completed my first 7 mile run this year.

  1. I went out at 5:30am yesterday with the intention of doing 4 miles (same weather conditions). Like you, at mile 2 I wanted to stop. And I did. It was just way too uncomfortable. I can't believe you did 7 miles in this heat. I'm impressed!
