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 …

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 …

Perfect run. Perfect food. Perfect day!

Aside from the baby girl tap dancing on my bladder at the start (we’re 27+2 weeks along today), it was a near …

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 …

The awesomeness of fruit, veg & exercise

Studies are confirming what we already know – the awesomeness of fruit, veg and exercise. Fruit & vegetables are awesome:  five daily servings of fruit (2) and vegetables (3) reduce cardiovascular mortality.  (In fact, each fruit or vegetable serving is associated with a 4% reduction in cardiovascular mortality.) Exercise is awesome:  only a minimal amount …
