1. Exactly one month from today is my 35th birthday and I will be celebrating by starting the day off with the GW Parkway Classic 10 Miler. That means I have one month to prepare for this race. The furthest I’ve run since giving birth was close to three miles and that was almost 2 weeks ago. My hips have felt tight and a bit off kilter so I’ve been nervous to do too much too soon which has led to me backing off and really just doing a mile or two at a time on the treadmill. I’m excited about the race nonetheless – even if it means a run/walk combo to get to the finish line.
2. Because my hips have felt out of whack I am going to see a chiropractor on Saturday morning. I have heard amazing things about this particular doctor and am excited to see him. I feel like getting adjusted and realigned will be really helpful postpartum and as I return to running.
3. I still have 10 pounds to lose. I am really looking forward to getting rid of these extra pounds and to fitting into my pre-pregnancy clothes again! I know I need to be patient and for the most part I am ok with it, but trust me I have my moments!!
