yep, it's been two months since I brought my son home and I haven't been able to run. But today I finally got the aid I was supposed to have all along! Yeah!! I was so excited I had to hold it in and not head out as soon as she got here! lol! She'll be here in the mornings and we already worked it out so that I can run (or bike) every morning. well at least MOn - Fri!! I didn't run far, but I wanted to run a little since I have my "I'm going to do it one way or another" 5K Saturday morning!!

Yah! That is so great to hear! I know that it would good for you to run. I wished that I had a chance to walk for at least 30 minutes at the park daily while my kids are in school. I know that I would really enjoy doing this. Have fun running!!

I have continued running and am presently training for a half marathon! It's coming up in May and I a little bit nervous about it.. but moving toward it nonetheless. My first 10K is two weeks from today!

How did your 10K go? I'm looking forward to hearing about the half, I have never done one but I am considering one... in June maybe.

Excellent that you are going to get additional help with your son. This will give you time to take a breath and rejuvenate if even if you take a walk. Good luck with your goal, that is quite a challenge.

Yes indeed! It felt so good to just be outside in the sunlight for a few minutes today! I can't wait until tomorrow when I will go for a bike ride! (don't want to run the day before a race!)

Hello macdingolinger, Good for you!! I know that you will reach your goal. I have always walked. I really want to start running or jogging now. How long did it take you to learn to run one mile? :)

I started out real slow so it took me awhile. I had never run so I started with a walk/run plan and built up to running longer times. Then one day I took off just to see how long I could run, it wasn't long after that when I hit my first mile! Probably a month or so..

I am glad you got to get out and run. I have not gotten to work out in like 2 months and I am really hating it. The kids are back in school so by next week things should be more calmed down and I should have time to start working out again. Was it hard to get back in to it? I always find the first few days back working out a bit difficult but then after about a week it feels like I never stopped.

Yay! So I know this is a really old post but I can relate to being glad I can go run lol. How did you do in the 5K? I ran a 5K back in mid March - the first race I'd run in 18 years. This past weekend I did the SoCal Ragnar with 11 other people, it's a 200 mile relay. It was a blast! Now i'm looking at doing the one in Napa.

I did terrible on the 5K I did after not running for two months - but hey finshed! I have since worked up and I've done one 10K - slow but finished! And next week i will do my first half marathon. It's a practice one since I have one in Chicago this fall! A 200 mile relay sounds fun!!
