Big news around these parts especially if you are following me on social media....and if you're not then get right on that!! Our big announcement is that we are adding to our "fancy" family in May with the addition of a baby boy!!!
I wanted to touch base here about how my training has been these last few months (I'm 14 weeks) and how it has compared to training with my last two pregnancies.
Enter this pregnancy...I was continuing training as normal (two days of speed work, an easy run, and a long run) until one day I hit a wall. I battled with headaches, nausea, and a body that was just plain tired. I cried about not being able to run long(seriously it was rough) and then went about figuring out what I COULD do. My speed has dwindled quickly but I am still putting in the miles (hello RW RunStreak!) but they are much slower. I still do two days of speed but they are not nearly as fast as they were before....and there are walk breaks. However now that I am into my second trimester, I have been feeling human again (THANK YOU LORD!) and have had a few really awesome runs....like the ones that make me feel like me again!!
