I guess I should update this. Since the marathon I have been taking it easy mileage wise. I have been trying to get in some speed workouts for an upcoming 5k and the turkey trot this month. I ran 2 miles at a 6:55 pace, so that was the fastest I have run in quite some time now. Of course I haven’t been logging my miles anywhere except in my brain and some of them on Runkeeper when I use it for GPS. I ran 7 miles in the park yesterday while Red was at Sunday school. That is the longest I have run since the marathon. I hope to do an 8 miler later this week and eventually build back up so I am consistently running 8-10 miles. I can’t believe I was running that during my pregnancy. And now, even after weaging, it’s a struggle.
I am not really looking forward to this 5k. I don’t know what to expect time wise. Definitely not sub 20. Hopefully sub 7 minute miles? It’s at noon, so my body should be limber and ready to go. My hip is hurting me today, hopefully that subsides soon as well.
