The thought of Running again

It’s hard reading running blogs when you’re not running, eh!

Yeah, that’s how I feel.

I haven’t run since last July, when I was 18 weeks pregnant! I had to stop due to pelvic pain. It took me 10 weeks to finally feel okay with not running….I struggled a bit with that.

Now, at 5 weeks postpartum I can’t wait to run BUT, I want to get the A-OKAY from my Doctor first……whom I see next week.

So, I sit and wait. No…don’t sit….sitting isn’t good for you (long period’s of it anyway).

So, I sit and nurse A LOT, carry around a 9 pound 11 oz baby in a car seat, climb up and down the stairs, did I mention I nurse my baby and bounce around with Hilary in my arms. Okay, I don’t bounce but I do little squats. Did you know that carrying a 5 week old almost 10 pound baby can make your squats more challenging? Well, they do.

Tomorrow, it’s supposed to be plus 3. I’m hoping to get out for a quick walk with Hilary in the stroller. A little fresh air can’t hurt a girl (or baby).

Running sneakers will just have to wait a little longer….but not too much longer. I’m lacing you up the minute I get the A-OKAY. I did warn my sneakers recently in this post here, that their turn would be coming soon.

Tomorrow, it will be my winter hikers….but next week … YOU watch out sneakers…you’re on my New Year’s Resolution list (which I’ll post as soon I as I take one dam picture and download it….I swear my resolutions/goals have been written for a while now).

For now I’ll just dream about running.

Cheers!
