Abandoned baby. Apparently.

OK. Still 6 months post baby #2. This 6 month mark feels like it’s been going for a really… long… time… Sick of jogging. Sick of gym. Sick of Tabata. Feeling crap and unmotivated. I know. Boo hoo. Poor me. So today… Slapped myself around the face (“MAN UP!”) then went and did some hill …

More Parenting Fails…

At the time of writing this post it is sunny and 40ºC. Just took our girl for a run. Actually it is cooler running compared with doing nothing (I heart you sweat) but still dang hot! During the run, saw two epic parenting fails: 1. Little girl in a long-sleeved, long-bodied 1000% polyester frilly fluffy dress …

Running HIIT-style @ 2+ months post-delivery

Even for someone who loves running there are days when running 5km or more can be a little ‘meh’. Yesterday I mixed it up a bit and took our baby girl for a run with interval sprints (essentially high intensity interval training – HIIT). 30 second sprint, 2 minute jog, repeat for total distance of …

Run @ 2+ months post-delivery

So we had a milestone today… Our first #postpartum #run, just me and the #babygirl (well, first run out of the womb anyway!). We did about 5km in about 25mins. Not too shabby I guess. But surely factoring in the weight of the baby capsule (weighs nearly a tonne – I have #tenniselbow again from …

Workout 3+ Weeks Post-Delivery

OK, I originally started this blog to document my experience and review the evidence regarding exercise in pregnancy. Two pregnancies down… But sadly my workout frequencies are down too… Sigh. 🙁 ANYWAY, hit the gym today – first proper workout since arrival of the girl! (Don’t laugh at my weights – or lack thereof!) TABATA …

35 weeks… It’s the Final Countdown!

Yes I AM referring to that song by Europe. You can thank me later for putting it in your head. And just because you know you want to, check out the video. Really, between Europe and Dolph Lundgren, the world owes 80s Sweden a massive ‘thank you’.   7km run this morning. Geez it was …

Happy 7 months!

We’re 7 months along in our pregnancy, and today we had a great 7km run to celebrate. There comes a point in your pregnancy when getting into your workout clothes is more of a workout than the workout itself.

Running @ 6.5 months pregnancy

It’s official… my body is falling apart. Went for a 6km run today. Honestly didn’t feel like it. But I’d cracked open my first chocolate Easter bunny. And the baby wouldn’t let me stop… 🙁 I don’t know what hurt the most: My hand – have some weird nerve compression going on, left hand is …
