Postpartum Recovery: Week of 08/27/18-09/02/18
Monday 08/27/18: Rest
I was very, very tired, and also feeling anxious about my repair surgery in the evening, so I just decided to spend the day relaxing at home with Vera.
Tuesday 08/28/18: 5k walk/run
It was a crazy hot day, but I desperately needed some alone time when Ben got home from work, so I just went out and got it done.
Wednesday 08/29/18: Rest
It was another stupid hot day, so I didn’t do ANYTHING except try to stay cool.
Thursday 08/30/18: Postnatal yoga, 5k walk/run
Yoga was GREAT. Vera was happy and smiling half the time, then the baby bouncer bounced her right to sleep for the second half, so I got a full workout. Then after Ben got home, I hit the rail trail for another walk/run.
Friday 08/31/18: 2 mile stroller walk
The weather was finally not so damn hot, so I took Vera for a nice walk on the rail trail.
Saturday 09/01/18: 3.5 mile walk/run
This was my first walk/run with 3:1 intervals instead of 4:1, and it was hard but good.
Sunday 09/02/18: Rest
We did a little bit of slacklining, but otherwise it was a quiet day around the house.
I’m excited to move forward with my return to running plan. I’m hoping to make 3-4 runs a week happen, plus stroller walks and yoga.
Do you still run when it’s super hot?
