I’m not the best at sitting still and doing nothing or watching daytime telly, and so during my first day of maternity leave, which was yesterday(!), I decided to start a blog.
The idea is to document my first year as a new mummy (I still have 10 days until my due date), and also document my progress with getting back to my pre-pregnancy fitness routine. This time last year I was enjoying getting back to steady training after running my first ultra-marathon. This year… umm… long walks with my dog, a lot of yoga, slow and short circuits and meditating quite a lot to help me to cope with the sleepless nights.
I get very excited every time I think about getting back to my old routine. I also recognise that there might be a few challenges and that I will need to think of myself as a newbie, and tap down my competitive side to make progress without injuring myself. Bring it on!
