Well, all was going well until I encountered what appeared to be a lovely steak frites at a local bistro with a fellow mom- lovely dinner, dazzling adult conversation, a delectable glass of cremant- and I'm afraid the next morning at 6 am, I was certain that that steak frites had been evil. Food poisoning. Let's leave the detail at that.
Well, it's not part of my plan to lose the baby weight, and I certainly don't recommend it, but four pounds disappeared that day. In any event, I felt in no condition to run on Thursday, which I was scheduled to do. I took a nap instead. Which felt blissfully guilty!
A special thank you to Cheryl K- I LOVE your comments, especially the last one, it was so helpful. It hadn't occurred to me to go to a running store to do that- and now I will. Since I have zero experience as a runner, I really did think it was simply putting one foot in front of the other. Now I don't think that so much :) Truth be told, by legs have been quite sore, but, the soreness appears to be symmetric, so I am not sure what areas might need help, but I'm sure they will present themselves.
Although I am temporarily off my training schedule- I will persevere and training will resume soon!
