|26 weeks, 6 days|
What we ate: Heathily from Monday to Thursday. Less healthily after I passed my gestational diabetes test. And then more healthily again, after I remembered that you don't need to celebrate not having diabetes by doing your best to GET diabetes.
How we moved: When we could- it was a busy week!
Tuesday: Morning 6k wog along the river trail. Lovely!
Wednesday: At home workout before rushing to get Phil from the airport.
Thursday: Walk + yoga
Friday: Lunchtime walk
Saturday: Walk with my sister along river trails in Taupo. Plus spectating...
Sunday: 3 hour walk
Where we went: Taupo. And it was bliss.
What we wore: I ordered yet another Piwaka t-shirt from one-day tees. Ooops! A girl can never have too many.
What we bought/got given: A capsule. For some reason imagining a tiny baby all scrunched up in it was particularly exciting! I'm taking a bit of a break from baby buying in the lead up to Christmas now- I'll still pick things up when there's a good sale, but I'm trying to focus on Christmas first!
What changed: I realised that running is pretty much over for me for good. Carrying this much booty is just too hard on my poor legs and back. I'm still planning to do as much as I can at Tinman though- I want to go out on a high note!
What stayed the same: Everything else. Still sleeping well, still not too achy or painy. Still relatively energetic in relation to the first tri, but not in relation to any previous version of me!
And a new heading as we head towards the final countdown (courtesy of Lisa); What I miss: Cycling. Mountain or road; whatever. I miss the fast wooshing downhill feeling, and the uphill grinds. While I was not sad not to be racing this past weekend, thanks to the insaneo winds, I had some serious bike envy. I'm worried that the bike mojo I've worked so hard to build will be lost when I get back into it. There will need to be lots of trips to the Redwoods to visit Sprocket and ride the Dipper!
