it was a beautiful 48 degrees outside and sunny again today when spencer woke up. hallelujah! spencer is working night shifts and he wakes up at about 1:30 so i went for another run because i need to take advantage of these good conditions. i finally have an iphone and the nike running app is super cool. today i had a small triumph in my running and i'm so excited about it.
before i had g, i did two triathlons and i remember my pace was not too shabby in the running parts. looking back, i really didn't have to do too much work to get that fast (i can only imagine how fast i could get if i actually did a training program). after having gretta, i became extremely slow. it was always such a struggle to run at all. i kept thinking i should be getting back to normal by now... what's going on... why am i so slow?!? today, i broke the slow cycle. and it didn't even hurt. i was splashing down those muddy road and i kept looking at my nike app in disbelief. as i came running into the driveway i saw gretta looking at me through the window with her hands up like i just won the race.
