Starting over (again)

When I was pregnant with Mr. Toddler, I stopped running around 6 months. It got uncomfortable and was no longer fun so I didn’t see the point. I kept walking on the treadmill and outside when the weather was nice, but I decided to just give running a break.

I promptly jumped back into running when I got the okay 6 weeks after giving birth. I started with a couch to 5k program. It was tricky fitting runs in on maternity leave while Mr. Baby/now Toddler napped. Then it got even harder when I returned to work, but I more or less kept it up. Until last August. I built up my long run to 8 miles and had a decent routine going, but I just got busy. Mr. Toddler went from 2 naps down to 1. I was painting the deck and studying in all my free minutes, so I decided that I would run less. I went down to one run a week. Then it got cold out, and I became even less consistent. I ran a turkey trot on thanksgiving and then pretty much stopped running for the rest of the year.

But once again, I’m ready to START OVER!
