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.

I just did my first night of Couch to 5K last night and it was a total fail. lol! Couldn’t do all the running segments, but walked really fast. Turned 30 today and can’t imagine doing another year at this weight.
Thanks for the inspiration!
Good for you, that’s great that you got out…doesn’t matter if you can do it all. What matters is that you are doing something. It will get easier each day, each week….you’ll look back at this week and see how far you have come.
