Well, I've had 9 months to relax, time to get back in shape. Well, not right this second....I'm only about 85% recovered from delivery, but next week at this time I'm going to start walking. Then I will start running/walking. Then I will start running short distances, I'll race and then run longer, then even longer, and then I will train for another marathon.

I've already made a list of possible races for 2011. I miss running races SO bad! It's such a fun thing. There's just something about getting out there and running. I don't compete against others when I race, there's no way I could ever win, but I compete against myself. I love seeing how fast I can be each time.

Now, I've got to get some new shoes. MyPRplans has a great article about getting new shoes and what to avoid. I really could use some new shoes.... who doesn't like new running shoes? I just need to go back and get fitted again. When I first started training last year I went and got fitted. The shoes were perfect, once I wore them out I just bought some that were similar, but I didn't get fitted...boy, bad idea... What a waste of money and it hurt my feet/legs too.

So, my goal is slow and steady and I'll be back in shape in no time. I have to keep reminding myself that in the beginning the little distances and stuff make a difference and they aren't pointless. The trick this time is to be able to continue to nurse while I'm starting to run. I lost my milk supply last time because of upping my running, lets hope it doesn't happen this time.

One more week of relaxing and then back into the fun of it! Yay! :)

She's here!!

Our little Rosalie came 3 weeks early on Thursday at 9:12 PM due to low fluid. She's 6lbs 4oz 19 inches long. She's doing great, I'm doing great, and things are awesome with us! I am SOO glad to have my little one here safe and sound. I'm loving every minute of it. My recovery is coming along quickly. Yay! :)

My new friend...

Since yesterday, my running warehouse water bottle has become my new best friend. I drank so much water last night that I had to get up at least 5 times. Then today I've downed about 3-4 bottles. I hope it helps. It would be nice if they only knew the exact solution to restore your fluids...
