First 9 Mile Run Post Pregnancy

I didn't want to do this today. In fact, I got out of bed, back in bed then talked myself back out of bed and put my running clothes on. As I was driving to drop off my car to start the run, I almost turned around and went back home. Mentally I just wasn't into this. But I told myself that I needed to do at least 6 miles today. 


About about 4.5 miles, I thought about looping back to the car.I was fading fast and was beginning to get stomach cramps. But then I saw someone walking, and didn't think much of it until he started running behind me. CRAP, there was no way I was letting this guy (whoever he was) run past me while all of these cars were out on the road. Of course we were approaching a hill, double crap. I pushed it and stayed ahead of him (not that his goal was to pass me, but I was determined it was going to be a cold day in hell before that happened this morning). I made it up the hill. Unfortunately he did too. Thankfully, he kept going straight as I made my usual loop into a neighborhood.


I was approaching 6 miles. Why quit now? I completed my first 9 mile run since having the baby. 


It's only been a few hours since I completed this run, and the soreness is setting in already - wow.


I'm glad I pushed through this morning and completed this run.
