On the Road Again

Well, I did it. I went for my first postpartum run yesterday. I use the term "run" loosely. It was really more of a slow jog, my biggest struggle being my hip and muscle function. It always feels rather awkward those first couple of runs after baby. My legs feel a lot like lead and it seems odd and difficult to get them moving the way they had not so very long ago again. I managed to "labor" through about 3 miles on this old road seen here (<---) til I returned home.
I wrote previously about how much I loved to run. I do need to clarify that I love to run only once I'm past the stage of hating it! There was nothing to love yesterday, really. The view was lovely, but unfortunately I didn't even have any tunes to distract me, because my Ipod Nano was out of juice. It does take a while and some persistence to get to the point where running is enjoyable. "And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up." (Galatians 6:9) That applies to running, I do believe.
