Need a few hints?
1. My last tweet:
2. I got all bundled up:
3. Notice what’s on my wrist?
Yea, that’s my Garmin!
4. I had to leave this sweet girl, but not for long.
Is it just me or does she look like an 80′s rocker with that bed head?!
So, if you hadn’t figured it out, I ventured out for my first post-baby run!
I thought I had to wait 8 weeks, as I did after having Riley, but at my recent OBGYN visit my Dr gave me the okay to start easing back into everything, including working out! It has only be 3+ weeks since Emery was born, so you can imagine my shock and excitement to be given the go ahead.
How did it go, not so exciting. I planned to do the same 5K route near my home that I did for my first run post-Riley, but that didn’t happen. It was so windy and cold (34 degrees- I am a baby!) that my lungs and chest were on fire. I got in 2 miles and thought I was going to die. Seriously though. I came home and laid on my living room floor for 10 minutes as though I had never run before in my life. Shortly after, I got the worst headache of my life. So dramatic, I am.
Despite today’s brutal run, it won’t delay my return. I plan to give it another go tomorrow, but will be a little smarter and take it to the treadmill, INDOORS in the WARMTH of my local gym! Hopefully I don’t die again, seriously. No funeral arrangements have been made, say prayers for me
