Licorice’s Pregnancy and Training Log – Week 23

The weeks are just flying by! The good news is that this week I (finally) took my licensing exam on Wednesday, so I was able to sort of get my life back in the second half of the week. I had grand plans for getting right back on to some sort of productive schedule first thing Thursday morning, but the reality was that I was too fried to even think about it. So I spent Thursday and Friday being a lazy bum for the most part.

I did make a triumphant return to prenatal yoga on Wednesday night. However, after my two week absence, one class was enough to leave me sore for a couple of days. That felt… a little pathetic.

On the pregnancy front, I had my 24 week appointment on Friday and everything looks good and is right on track. For the first time in, well, ever, my doctor didn’t have to chase the baby down to hear her heartbeat. Apparently she’s now big enough that she doesn’t have anywhere to run ๐Ÿ™‚

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.
