Post-Baby Running Come Back
|February 13, 2014||Posted by Madeline @ Food, Fitness, and Family under Running|
Hey there! Hope your week is going well. Thinking about everyone in the Northeast as you get a ton of snow. We were under a freezing rand advisory here but nothing happened. I am getting tired of our “cold” weather and am super excited for the forecast since I see 70’s on the horizon 😉
I am really excited to share with you guys today that I am officially signed up for my first post-baby races! The last race I ran was the Augusta Half Marathon almost exactly a year ago. I found out I was pregnant just a few weeks later. While I ran until 36 weeks during my pregnancy I just didn’t race. Therefore I am STOKED to get back to it.
My first race is actually this weekend. I am running the Savannah Hot Cocoa 10K. I mean what mom WOULDN’T sign up for a race knowing that there was chocolate at the end? Sounds like it’s right up my alley. My BFF here is running the half marathon so I get to stick with her the first 3ish miles before finishing up. I am confident in my mileage and am ready for the distance. Not sure what my time goals are … I would love to go sub-60 minutes but I am ok if that doesn’t happen too. I have to remind myself sometimes that Bryn is only 10 weeks old 😉
I am also signed up for the “Get Your Rear in Gear 5K” on March 1st in Savannah with the rest of my cohort from PA school. I have some bigger goals for this race 😉
I have a busy day studying for my A&P lab practicum tomorrow and physical assessment lab today. We have to know the bones and their markings/features tomorrow as well as the ligaments of the major joints. Normally it wouldn’t seem so daunting but it’s 50% of our grade and also smack dab in the middle of the test storm of the quarter. Wish me luck! 😉
Do you have any races coming up?
