I returned to running about a week after giving birth to James, a month after my last run. It was definitely slow going at first, but the past few weeks I have worked my way up to over 30 mile weeks. Dan and I have even gotten a few runs together when family has come to town. This week should be over 40 with hopefully an even bigger week next week. Today I got in an 18 mile run marking part of the North Fork 50 course. It was a huge confidence booster! Despite stopping to hang flags I finished in 3:40 and felt great! I'm going to have to up my miles significantly these next few weeks, but I'm fairly certain I can do it and still avoid injury. Dan races the Leadville marathon tomorrow so with his training over I'll have more time to focus on my own training.
