Am I starting from square one?

Confession: I really did think that one day, I'd have my husband watch my newborn son, put on my shoes, and run an easy 6 miles in slightly less than an hour.

Now that scenario may happen... but it's not happening anytime soon. He's 2 months old, and right now there's nothing "easy" about 6 miles. And I certainly couldn't finish them in less than an hour.

Today I ran 5 miles. And afterwards, had the runner tummy issues I previously only experienced after doing major long distance runs.

The concept of "muscle memory" seems to apply to spin class, the elliptical and just about everything BUT running. Sigh...
