On Wednesday, I suited up and then waited. Megatron and I played and worked on his physical therapy exercises until I started to see the signs. The eye rubbing and yawning. I grabbed that kiddo, plopped him in his car seat and were out the door with the run stroller. Sure enough, about a tenth of a mile into the workout, he was out and I got to work. I have a good 4 mile loop I can do from the house but I was aiming for five miles. I ended up taking random streets in the neighborhood until I finally hit five. It was the furthest I've gone since December and the furthest I've ever gone pushing the stroller. I'm pretty stiff for sure but I'm so so glad I was able to get out again. Plus, since I timed it with nap time, Megatron slept the entire time. He woke up just as I was rolling him back into the garage.
I did a run/walk combo and boy do I have work to do. My average pace was way over where I was last year. I expected that but I also had the realization of just how much work I have to do. I don't think it will quite be starting over like when I did my first half marathon 10 years ago but it won't be easy. Hopefully my little buddy will continue to nap his way through my workouts!
