I am signed up for the SA Rock n Roll Half Marathon, this will be my 7th (I think) I should really count them, lol.
I signed up for it, as a way to motivate me to work out after having the baby. I am feeling so unprepared. Yesterday I ran for about an hour and 10 mins and ran a total of 4.6 miles. That is the most I have ran since “getting back” to it.
After baby number two my body just feels heavier, I am also heavier lol. Currently I am weighing about 156.6lbs (down 30lbs), perhaps that has to do with it. When I get a good flow i’m running about 13 min miles, this is a good pace not too fast not too slow. When I push hard I definitely feel like I won’t make it long. I am also walking in between my running which is new for me though I have seen others do this strategy.
Any other mamas out there? What did you do when you didn’t feel “ready” for a run? I know I can finish it but I might feel so great after it.
