The Difference

Friday, July 10, 2009

Question: Do you know the difference between a 5K and a soccer game?

The 5K went pretty well Wednesday night. Tony and I got quite the kick out of the name, as the Moonlight 5K commenced at 7:00 and there was no sight of the moon to be seen. We basically ran around 3M's parking lot which left a lot to be desired by way of course, especially since it was a loop. I think it should be obvious that we will not be doing the run again in the future . . . but it's official! I'm a runner again! :)

We finished in 28:40. Not a time to be especially proud of, but as the mother of an almost 11 week old, I'll take it.

My soccer league started up last night! We were off to a pretty rough start when the game started, since we were still going through introductions and didn't even have enough players on the field, let alone a goalie identified! Yikes! We ended the half down 3-1 and were lucky the damage wasn't worse! The 2nd half we really buckled down, you know, once we knew everyone's names lol. Ended up being a 3-2 loss and we're excited for what next week will bring!

Answer: Bladder control.

Um, back to those kegels. Sprints, hard stops and my body hitting the ground apparently inhibits my ability.

Too funny! This is a problem for me already...

Chelsie said...

Yay you for getting back out there. That is a respectable time even if you hadn't given birth!

and too funny about the bladder control...well not really funny but you know what I mean.

I kind of sort of miss running just a little bit, even though I didn't do it for nearly as long.

I need to get back on the exercise train in general now that quick movements don't make me vomit, lol!

Way to go with both the 5k & the soccer game! I'm sure you're well on your way, if not already there, to being in fantastic shape again!! You're such a great encouragement to me & after this past vacation, I definitely need some motivation!! :)

Since you labeled this post as " recovery" I am going to ask... has soccer and running helped much with your pp progress ? I am looking for some hope !
