Workout @ 17 weeks pregnancy

OK, I’ve been WAY more lax with workouts in this pregnancy than with the first. Probably because there is now the added factor of ‘toddler’. In fact, if only you could see into the future when you’re pregnant with your first child, you wouldn’t complain about a thing: Your time is your own. Not owned …

WOD at nearly 4 months post-Caesarean section delivery

I can’t believe nearly 4 months has passed since bub was born. I feel so old saying that… or maybe I feel old because we were woken in the early hours by an explosive bowel opening (by the bub, not my hubbie or I… just to clarify!). As they say, better out than in… Yesterday: …

Running… and pain!

Well, it was a gorgeous day the other day and hubbie was slow getting out of bed… Time for a run! To be honest I haven’t been for a ‘proper’ run for a whole week. I’ll take it easy, it will be great….. Turns out the run was great. I did a well-worn route and …
