This week was actually a pretty good week in terms of running! I got in quite a few miles – including both outdoor and indoor runs this week – and got up to my 2nd highest mileage week since LM and 2nd fastest run!
I’m feeling pretty encouraged by the week. While my daily miles are still pretty low (3-5ish miles most often), I’ve felt pretty good most days. I probably could go more if I had some more time, too. AND even found myself going pretty fast (for post-baby me) on Friday’s run.
Sunday’s stroller run was not only with FW and B and LM, but also with our niece and nephew.
Friday’s run’s average page was 9:16/mi – my fastest run since I’ve had LM, minus the 5k race I did a month or so ago.
Here’s a look at my splits:
It really was the best run I’ve had in a while! (For comparison, the run we did on Sunday with the strollers and our niece and nephew was close to 11 min/miles)
I finally feel like I’m slowly getting back into running shape. Am I as fast as I was last year at this time? Not at all. But between getting not much sleep, nursing (it dehydrates me and takes a toll!), and how busy work has been (not to mention trying to manage our new life with 2 kids), I’m just happy to be where I am.
Some questions for you:
- Do you run in the morning or at night?
- Have you been running inside? Outside? Both?

Nice week of running!
Have you ever considered linking these running recap posts with the WW? We really want to keep it a fitness linkup. This would be perfect!
Ooooooh good idea!! I can do that if you would prefer?
I run whenever I have the time. I do prefer the mornings to get it overwith but that is not always the case. You mean you can’t find more time with two little ones:) I think you are doing awesome!!
You had a great week of running 5 days. Stroller runners always impress me so much. Nice job!
