Time is most Valuable

Friend's Stables in Bathurst

Horse Paddocks in Bathurst

5:40am ~17 degrees 3km run

So one of my goals was to run 3 times per week consistently by the end of the year.

I'm not going for distances or anything fancy like that (although I am currently following a beginner half marathon training program) but I am trying to ease into it all.

The hip problems I had after having H boy are still niggling away at me and I noticed almost immediately after running last week that the tightness through my hips was right back to where it was before I started doing Yoga. It is restricting and painful - so I skipped my third run last week and focused on recovery. This is all a slow rebuilding process.

This is all combined with the baby who STILL doesn't sleep through the night. Baby B has woken every 2 - 3 hours nightly since birth. This - as you can imagine - is wearing a little thin.
I am also going back to work in about 6 weeks time and due to some unforeseen circumstances this is likely to be more days per week than I was working when I went back after having H boy.

I am very nervous about this - and quite stressed- so I am trying to take it all one day at a time right now and arm myself with lots of planning strategies and positivity.

  1. Hi Andrea,

    Good on you for your honesty re how you are feeling. You're half way there. Maybe even instead of looking at a day at a time try and break it down even more to just a few hours or half a day. I know myself when I am stressed about something if I look too far ahead I have the same feelings as you explain.
    I'm sure it will all fall into place, and initially maybe there will be a few hurdles, but I'm sure when you look back to this time in the middle of this year it will be all ok!

    Good luck!
