Post Baby training starts now.

Last week I was looking through some pictures and I got excited. Prior to finding out I was pregnant with #2 training was going really well and I seemed to be bouncing back pretty quickly. I set a PR in a race I’ve run 3 years in a row and was looking pretty good. That got me excited to start training again. Don’t worry I’m well aware it will be different this time, 2nd pregnancy, 2 kiddos to juggle, all of that will be a new challenge for sure.

Never the less it got me thinking….why not start now? I’ve spent a lot of this pregnancy using it as an excuse…caffeine, sugar, fast food….yeah. I say all of that and it sounds horrible but I know in the end I’m not that bad. However with all the knowledge I have about how these things affect your body let alone a little one there is no excuse.

 So I’m cutting back, cutting back on my excuses, I don’t need sugar, I don’t need that coffee every morning and I certainly don’t need fast food….really ever, with a little prep there is always options. Focusing on these habits now will not only help me break them earlier, but help with the bounce back after baby. Making sure when I start running again my body is ready for it not worn down from all the junk.

It’s amazing to me how a little perspective can change things, viewing this as a training choice not a convenience choice has made all the difference in my brain over the last few days.
