- Slowly rebuild my running fitness
- Strengthen myself for running again
- Slowly build up to long distance runs.
On Wednesday I went for a 6km run with Mr F in the buggy. Not going to lie, I'm not sure if it was me running with buggy in tow, or the buggy running with me in tow. It was somewhat painful towards the end but I loved it none the less. Yesterday I was a tad sore... Running sore, which is my favourite sore when I am getting back into it. It means things are happening and getting back into shape... Unless it's an injury.
Speaking of injuries, towards the end of my run when I was trying to run up a hill (when I say trying it's because I think I was running but I bet I didn't LOOK like I was running) I felt my IT Band reminding me that it had been a while since I had run properly. This means that I need to get back into my strength training and stretches to help get my IT Band set for running again. The Run Less Run Faster book also has some great stretches and exercises for IT Bands.
Unfortunately I didn't get a pic of myself with a beetroot face after the run, but here is one of me and Fletch before hand:
|Running is a great way of getting an overtired baby to sleep - so glad he loves the buggy, definitely a runner's son!|
Tim had a long weekend last weekend so we spent some time out the family bach (that's a beach house for all you non-Kiwis).
|Up at the lookout, was a bit windy that day.|
|View from the lookout|
|Getting in a bit of exercise with Fletch in the front pack.|
|Super Dad and husband babysitting and vacuuming - who said men can't multi task?!?|
Also, just want to mention that I am trying to get to 100 like on my facebook page so I can have a giveaway.
