It has been almost a month since I have run. Last time I ran I had to use a support belt (Fitsplint). I hope to return to running soon, but for now I'm listening to my body. I wrote a detailed blog about Stanley's birth. If you like details have a read.
This time last year I was in Rio going over my race day goals. I was confident, ready, and excited. I didn't have a race plan as you can't plan a race with so many variables. This year I'm getting ready for an even more exciting chapter in my life but feeling so much less prepared. I've done no training for this and again can't make any plans as anything could happen. I have no idea when or how baby will enter this world. All I know is he/she will make an entrance when ready and on his/her own terms. Maybe baby just wants to be my one year out present I'm not too uncomfortable and been surprisingly patient so can't complain about being past due date - it is after all only an estimate and not a race date set in stone!
Only about 2 weeks to go until Baby's due date, however most first time babies don't arrive on time so I will be patiently waiting. Baby can take as much time as (s)he needs to come out healthy and happy. Have e read below on how some of my training has changed throughout this pregnancy.
It's been almost a year since the Rio Olympics so I decided to look back and reflect. Have a read if you please
