Return To Fitness: Day One

I kept my promise and went to Stroller Strides today. Brooke was very cooperative and I just simply couldnt find any excuses not to go. The class was great, and at my current level of fitness (probably a 4 on a 10 point scale) it was really challenging. My stamina is low and my muscles are weak, so I definitely need to get into some sort of routine. I think that things have been relatively easy regarding Brooke (the pregnancy, labor, and postpartum periods) and that got me to thinking that I was in the same shape as I used to be. I was wrong. Stuff that should have been generally easy for me was hard, and I worked up a sweat walking at a fast (not even very fast) pace. I'm looking forward to keeping up with these classes and eventually adding some more things into my weekly routine. I think its going to be a bit before I'm out there running any races :)
