As you might have noticed, I haven’t done any races for a long time and now I’ll tell you the reason why, I’m pregnant!! It wasn’t really planned but AJ and I are both very excited, but also a little scared. It took me a bit of time to get used to the idea. I actually raced a half ironman and also tried to race IM AZ while I was 6 weeks pregnant without knowing but luckily a very sore back made me unable to run!! I didn’t really enjoy the 2nd and 3rd month of my pregnancy as I spent most of my time either on the couch or in front of the sink being sick!! It was mentally very hard being used to be able to train 30-35 hours a week to suddenly doing absolutely nothing because I felt awful. Things are starting to get a lot better now- I really started to worry that I was going to be bad for 9 months- and I’m back into light training again which makes life a lot more enjoyable. I miss the hard training and the competitons though but my life is not really so much about me at the moment but about looking after the life that’s growing inside of me. As you can imagine, AJ is over the moon and can’t wait to get a little play mate!!
