Blummin heck Caro, you've got enough going on without all this. Well done for getting yourself heard.
Sonya, hope you are ok. Personally I was chuffed to be given an emergency c section but i guess recovery with 2 kids, not driving and all the moving stuff going on would make it hard.
Just waiting for hb to come home so i can go to swim club. My lower back is feeling a little dodgy. I remember this when marathon training a year after i had Georgia. I am trying hard to do my core exercises but suspect i might (!) be overdoing things. Anyway i will stretch, see a physio and plough on. I have another sprint tri on sunday.
Am still sweltering here. We went to a local 'country' show here this afternoon and I am sticky and hot. Did my first park run this morning in over 1.5 years and managed a 27m40. It was a 25 sec negative spilt as it was congested on the first lap but I was pleased. My pb is just over 25 so a way to go but a good start.
Fitflop - welcome. I ddidn't run when pregnant either time. The first pregnancy I tried and I felt awful and I was injured in the second. I would say don't go too hard or get too hot. Listen to your body and people who don't run will probably tell you not to as they think you shouldn't do anything whilst pregnant! I swam with a club and did body pump during pregnancy and my fitness is coming back. I had a c section in mid March and I did my first triathlon about three weeks ago. I am with Jane that it does come back quite quickly. Oh my physio told me that its important to keep strength up as that takes longer to get back than cv.
Baby crying so best go, sorry wanted to do more replies. Caro hope you make some progress with dates so you can get away.
EF - I dont get people who just talk really loudly on the phone whilst on a train. I am so careful when I am on a train to not speak too loud or for too long as I know how much it irritates me listening to other peoples banal bollox!
Hubby back on Friday hopefully. It's not been so bad actually although Sunday was a bit rubbish as we usually just hang out as a family on Sundays.
Isaac has his first morning at a childminder tomorrow. I wanted to put him in to the same nursery as Georgia but they need at least 2 mornings a week and its £40 a session, whereas the childminder will take him for 3 hours and its £5 an hour. I am going to take off on my bike for a few hours and hope he is ok. I feel a little self indulgent but I am usually pretty careful with money and I get 6 months full pay maternity leave so I am going to spend a little bit of it having a morning to myself. I hope the childminder is ok. Her English is a little ropey but she has a good ofsted rating and has been childminding for 22 years so surely she knows more about babies than me?!
