Barley’s Pregnancy Training Log 1/9-1/29

It feels very strange and leaves me wondering if I should even publish these as there isn’t much of anything at all. But at the same time, it’s honest and real life to be able to admit things aren’t always hunky dory right?

This specific 3 week chunk was a bit altered because of being sick, which forced me to cancel a few run dates and also opt NOT to do something on days that I really felt motivated to work out. It started the first week, then went away or so I thought but then came back this past week with a vengeance and need for a trip to the doctor. Not the end of the world but definitely put a damper on any plans to be active.

After these last few weeks being what they were, and feeling like I really DO want to do more than I am (though, still not a ton). I am going to try a VERY LOOSE plan for the coming weeks. More like, setting small goals and seeing what I can do. I feel like I need SOME structure otherwise I will cave every damn time to puppy snuggles/baby kicks while curled up watching TV. Wish me luck!
