Now that I have
foolishly completed a half marathon just 7 months post-baby, I figured I needed to stay on the fitness train.
So what’s next?
Well, a full marathon is not in my near future. And, for that matter, I’m holding off on half marathons for a bit. (I do have a couple in mind for the fall, but that’s a little off from now.)
The past two nights, I’ve gone out and run short distances – as in, 2 miles. It’s been easy and nice. It’s just enough time to clear my head (I could probably use a little more time, but I take what I can get.) I can easily run after the baby goes to bed at 7:30.
Last night, I thought that maybe I’d like to try my hand at a 5k. I used to be a
lot little faster, and 27 minute 5ks were not unheard of for me.
Then again, in the next few weeks, I’m hoping to hit up a pool (indoors) for some different activity.
So, short distance running and (hopefully) swimming. That’s what’s next. I’m really looking forward to it!
