Postpartum Stats

It has been just over 4 weeks that I started running again and I have managed to put up 110 miles (11.55 of those walked), with last week being 45.25 miles!  I also ran my longest run in months yesterday; 17 miles.  My pace is still much slower than where I was at this time last year, but I am trying not to focus on my pace.  My main concern is to build up endurance again so that I can maintain 50+ mile weeks now through my ultra and fall marathons.  I've got a trail 50K in less than 8 weeks and a marathon in October.  I just want to finish both strong, not looking to PR!!
