Tuesdays on the Run: Bringing Up My Mileage

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.

Some highlights:

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?

Tuesdays on the Run: Getting Better?

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 – and got up to my highest mileage week since LM.

Some highlights:

The week started off with a family run – B, FW, LM and I!

I got in 2 stroller runs- one with FW and my first with LM!

I got in my most weekly miles since LM was born. More than 17!

I ran by myself on Friday! No stroller or anything. My goal was under 10 minutes miles and I barely made it.

It’s safe to say that I’m slowly getting back into running shape. Is it easy? No. But, I’m trying to be patient and just enjoy these runs and my last few weeks of maternity leave!

Some questions for you:

  • How many miles do you run in a week?
  • What is your favorite running weather?
