getting back into the game...

... so i ran a whole 8 mins and 11 seconds tonight after taking over over 5 weeks and can i just say that sucked? ok, just needed to get that out there. i have been very patient about not running since Noah has been born and today just felt right in terms of getting back into it. in my mind, i have visions of getting back into the less than 7 min/mile shape today BUT i know it won't happen. i didn't carry Noah overnight so i know it won't be easy.

... but i am committed again today. the run sucked but i feel so good now. i will have to wait to see how tomorrow goes and if anything feels out of whack - if not, i will try again in a couple of days. i feel good. i don't feel like i am operating at half speed from lack of sleep and from the daily needs of the business.

... i can't WAIT til Noah is big enough to strap into a jogging stroller and take him with me!

Wow! You go Girlie! I'm impressed! I haven't jogged since my first was born...over 4 years ago! LOL

It will be so much fun for you to take Noah with you as he grows..he'll love it!

YAY for you! Caution about too much exercising though - it can change the taste of your milk (lactic acid or something - too long now).

You will get back in shape in no time. Noah will notice a change in your milk but he will learn to get use to it. Don't be surprised if he is a little fussy the feedings after you exercise but he will adjust to the change in taste. For those of you who don't see Caroline, she look fabulous already. You would never know she has a 1 month old.

Congrats on getting back on track Caroline.

And can I just say again how cute your little guy is. Too sweet for words.

You are amazing, girl! It will come with time! I'm impatient now because I can't run as far as I used to or as fast with this little one inside of me! I'm looking forward to getting back into it too!
