Can you believe how big he's gotten???
6 weeks ago or so I ran my first 5 miles post-baby and was ecstatic. It took about 51 minutes. Last night I ran 5 miles in 46:34. That might not seem like a big difference to you, but that's almost a 1 minute per mile difference! I'm proud of that progress.
I'm also proud of the 3 month photoshoot I did with Baby J the other day.
I am very nervous about the race though. Although I've put in the long runs, including an 11 miler, a 10 miler, an 8 miler, and two 7 milers, I've been majorly lacking in the weekday runs, which are rarely more than 3 miles, leaving my body mostly comfortable running... wait for it... 3 miles. But I did run 70 miles in September, definitely the highest month so far this year by about 20 miles. So we shall see!
Um, thanks Baby J, that reminds me, I should probably start hydrating with Nuun?
All I've had so far today is coffee....
I'd be lying if I wasn't super secretly hoping to run the half in less than 2:20, and lying even more if I wasn't super secretly hoping that number to be closer to 2:10. Not so secret thoughts anymore, eh?!?! But I seriously could also care less if that number is closer to 3 hours or if I walk half of the race. I JUST WANT TO FINISH. Seriously. I have no expectations and just want to not die, and to have a semi-fun time (how much fun can you really have when you're running 13.1 miles?!). So, here goes nothing!
Happy weekend everyone!
