I took advantage of the team’s spring break schedule to get in some good workouts with the ladies. Though I suffered (mostly in the 400s) I was surprised at how good it felt to run fast. I know I still have a ways to go, but it’s relieving to know that my fitness is still coming back.
I’m doing my best to balance motherhood, work, and training all the while doing my best to get enough sleep and to eat right. I’m finding it necessary to sometimes sacrifice miles for sleep. I run so much better well rested. I also need more sleep than normal because Patrick is still breastfeeding. I just don’t have the motivation to go full tilt right now.
