About a month ago, I ran in my very first postpartum 10k. I had done that race when I was about 5 months pregnant last year. My finish time last year was a little over 1 hour and 15 minutes. I had originally wanted to finish this year’s race in under an hour.
However, it wasn’t meant to be, though I did get really close. My official time was 1 hour and 3 minutes. I was slightly disappointed, but that was my longest run of the year. I have a 10k race coming up this year and I plan to run that one in under an hour. This local 10k has a flat course, while the 10k in Santa Monica had a few hills, which I am not a fan of!
I am glad that I am almost running the pace that I used to run before getting pregnant and having Selena. I have been running regularly, though the cold weather that;s coming might keep me from running as much. Still need to improve on running longer distances since I am training for the LA Marathon in March 2020.
