This morning was such a beautiful morning so I was very happy to get out for my walk with Fletch in the buggy. It's been 6 weeks since Fletcher was born and I didn't intend on running but on the stretch home, after I'd walked about 3 or so km already, I decided to see how I would go running the rest of the way home. It was only 2km but I managed to run all the way home and keep all my insides... On the inside. Phew!

- 3 or 4 walks (now I will be trying to throw one run in) a week
- 2 weight sessions a week.
I have been great with the walking, walking 4 times a week, but the weights not so much. Maybe just one session a week, if that. My goal is to improve on the weights as I need to strengthen
So how did I feel running? I felt excellent! I only stopped to go over the curbs when crossing the road so that Fletch didn't fly out of the buggy. And how did he go? He LOVED it! He didn't bump around any more than he would with me walking - don't worry, if it was too rough for him I would not have continued. My body felt pretty great, it was just a flat run so no aches (yet!), and I didn't wet my pants... Or maybe I did but would you really want to know if I actually did?
I won't be out doing any crazy runs any time soon but I will definitely keep going with this as it felt so good to be running again. Not to mention, it felt like I had new running clothes as I can now fit into old clothes again... Yay! I am sure I was going crazy slow running but I felt like I was flying! Oh, and my face wasn't even the colour of a chilli by the time I got home - very surprising!
Then I got to hang out with this super handsome dude for the rest of the day...
