Licorice’s Pregnancy & Training Log – Week 33

Y’all, this week was not good. The nausea and fatigue that I thought I’d said goodbye to back around weeks 12-14 came back like it meant it. As you can imagine, I was not a fan. It was bad enough early on, but combined with the physical discomforts of carrying an almost-full-sized baby? It felt riotously unfair. Like adding insult to injury. A quick Twitter poll of my child-having friends confirmed that this was, indeed, a typical thing and that yes, it was the biggest load of prenatal poo ever.

Definitely feeling bigger than I look these days

As you can probably imagine, I wasn’t quite as active this week. I had the second half of my Yoga for Athletes workshop over the weekend, which I survived, but I did a lot more observing than modifying this time around. I’ve been keeping my fingers crossed that this new queasy state is temporary, but it’s certainly persistent.

Monday: Walk 1.7 miles

Tuesday: Swim 10×25, 20 minutes aquajogging

Wednesday: Walk 0.9 miles (I was hoping a walk would make me feel better, but it didn’t. So I cut it short.)

Thursday: Rest

Friday: Yoga workshop

Saturday: Yoga workshop

Sunday: Rest & football

Totals for the week: 2.6 miles walking, 250 yds swimming, 20 minutes aquajogging

In a previous life, I worked on computers and spent all day sitting. Thanks to running, I've rebooted my career and am now a running and triathlon coach and soon-to-be physical therapist. I've also got the mind and spirit of an elite trapped in the body of a back-of-the-packer.
