20 miles last week! My most mileage in a week postpartum — and I felt great about each run. I was very busy during the middle of the week (I re-opened my business for a seasonal project), but I was able to power through thanks to the support of Chris and a great friend who helped babysit the twins. And, I was able to get out everyday to keep my run streak alive! Day 18 and going strong….
I took the Dualie out for 4 runs, 3 of those were 5 miles each. The first stroller 5 miler I did was on Monday, and MAN was that tough. I worked hard for those miles. It felt like I was running on an incline the whole time, just getting used to pushing the stroller. I still need to adjust and find out what works best for me – which handlebar height, two hands on the bar vs one, etc. But overall I was thrilled to have gotten out there and made use of the twins’ naptime.
I was also so happy to take a long run with Chris and the twins on Saturday morning. Chris and I used to run together frequently on the weekends, so this was a great way to get back to “the old days”. I love using our Bob Dualie for family runs!
12/5: 5 miles (I originally thought it was 4.5 – but I measured the distance on G-Maps and realized I had done 5!)
12/6: 1 mile
12/7: 2 miles
12/8: 1 mile
12/9: 5 miles
12/10: 5 miles
12/11: 1 mile
Wow! That’s a great achievement!
