Ran 11km in horribly strong head wind.  Felt a lot slower than my 8:15pace. At some points I was not really moving anywhere because the wind was so strong. But on a plus, I finally broke 140lbs!  So I'm getting pretty close to my pre pregnancy weight.

I ran for time today because I was pushing the stroller.  Ran laps around the park and boy does pushing a stroller make you slower.  But it was a good thing.  I needed to run a little slower as my legs were quite stiff.  Felt ok otherwise.  Hoping to run 10k or more saturday.

Ran a 22:40.  Meh.  I am happy with it in some ways.  It'll take some getting used to running first thing when I wake up.  It's the only time I can now with all my kids being home during the day.  So I'm happy I get the chance to but its not my fav time of the day to run.

I still cant wait to shed the rest of my baby weight.  I know thats a factor.  I also need to get in to see a chiropractor badly.  My foot is locked up.

Another 10k under the belt.  It felt horribly slow and I was quite stiff.  It's also the first time I've run first thing in the morning in over a year. and I'm not used to running that "cold".  It was also cold out.  Prob 8 celcius?  But not terrible.  48:12
