My first run post marathon...

...not bad, not bad. Considering I didn't eat before I went. I shoulda... I guess those are the things you learn when you run while pregnant.
I felt good besides my legs being drained of energy. My arches felt fine, my thighs were a little achy, and my IT issues didn't act up at all. I ended up going about 2.41 miles which wasn't bad. I made myself not look at my watch cause I didn't want to focus on pace or anything, I just wanted to get out there and run. It kinda sucks going these short distances cause it takes me about 2 miles to warm up, so I tend not to enjoy the first couple miles. It's all good though, at least I'm out there running, right?
This morning was the perfect morning to run. I loved it! It wasn't too warm, there wasn't a breeze, and it wasn't too bright out either.

I was able to get in another 10 minute run today, I don't know how far I went or anything, but I'm teaching B to ride a bike, so I ran beside her the whole time and felt great. I need to bring water next time, but other than that, it was fun being able to run along side of her. Heaven knows last year at this time I was still getting winded while running. It's amazing how you can improve when you keep on keeping on. :)
