Yesterday, I finally felt like a human being again and despite a little bit of head congestion issues, I decided to get back in the saddle and go for a run. Of course, the weather while I was sick was beautiful, sunny, and warm and now that I feel better, it is cooler and cloudier. Oh well, thems the breaks.
I planned to do 3 miles on a tried and true, straightforward route in my neighborhood. I had no desire to push it, I just wanted to get out there for a decent run. I maintained a steady pace of approximately 11:25 minute miles and came home pretty happy with myself for getting out there.
I can't wait to put in some more miles this week. My goal is to work back up to an average of 20 to 25 miles a week. That was what I used to run before I got pregnant and I think my speed will improve if I can get back in the habit of putting that amount of mileage.
It is safe to say that Eva and I are both out of the woods and finally feeling 100% better. Kyle on the other hand...well he's still dealing with some sinus pressure and congestion. He usually has seasonal allergy issues though, and I think that it hindering his progress. I know he is tired of being sick, so I hope he feels better soon.
