Parsley’s Final Week of Pregnancy Training Log – 10.21.16

Sunday: 4 miles solo

Monday: 3 miles w/ double stroller (broken up w/ stop at playground in middle)

Tuesday: 4 miles w/ double stroller

***Taper time! ย Seems like my body was trying to tell me something, b/c for the next few days I only felt like doing my 2 mile loop, and just taking it really easy

Wednesday: 2 mile loop w/ double stroller

Thursday: 2 miles w/ double stroller

Friday: 2 mile loop w/ double stroller

Friday night/early Saturday: Extreme intensity endurance sprint. ย Involved a high speed chase, police escort, intervals without recovery, a rush to the finish line, and unfortunately no option for performance enhancing drugs. ย Thankfully the finisher’s trophy is pretty darn cute.


***Compared to my previous labors of 20 and 15 hours, you would think a quick labor would be a welcome change. ย But no, now being in the 2% to experience precipitous labor, I know I am truly a long distance athlete!

Army veteran, now Army wife with 3 daughters (aka: single married mom). I have fun trying to sprint, enjoy long runs in the mountains, and everything in between. 3 x marathon OTQ, will eventually start training again to try to make it 4. I write about trying to stay competitive while raising young kids.
