6 Month Bump Date

After my birthday weekend, I was feeling a little depleted.  Heading into my 6th month of pregnancy, I’ve definitely had a little more fatigue.  I’m really happy, however to be reaching the week of viability, and sharing my 6 month bump date. … Read the rest

Birthday Trip & Working Out While Traveling

This was a busy week for the Brambila boys and I.  I celebrated my 34th birthday on Friday, and we had plans to stay at a resort for part of the weekend.  Normally, I like working out while traveling, even when we’re on vacation. … Read the rest

Trail Running While Pregnant

I am so happy to report that this week was much less eventful (and stressful) than last week!  I was even able to get another trail run in the books, which I am more than celebrating!  When I was in the middle of morning sickness, I honestly didn’t know if trail running while pregnant was going to be a possibility. … Read the rest

Active Recovery

This was a somewhat difficult week for me.  I started off not feeling great Sunday and Monday after my cousins wedding.  I was hoping to get up and go for a run Monday morning, but when I was still feeling sick by Sunday night, I knew the best option for me was to sleep in and let my body recover a little more. … Read the rest

20 Week Bump Date

Rebuilding Endurance

I didn’t have any interruptions to my training plans this week; which means inevitably next week will probably be a shit show.  But I’m not going to worry about that  right now, because I’m too focused on this whole rebuilding endurance thing I’m working on. … Read the rest

Unplanned Rest Days

This week was overall pretty great, though I did have to make some adjustments to my planned workouts.  I took a rest day on Sunday, and went for a  little walk with the boys, and I was feeling great for the first half of the week. … Read the rest

Focusing On Strength

My mileage is back up to what I would consider a fairly reasonable level. Running 40-50 miles has always been a pretty comfortable place for my body, and it gives me the opportunity to focus on other area’s without ditching running all together.… Read the rest

Running Without Races

This week was a nice, slow return to running and CrossFitting.  This is the first time in several years that I have been running without races on the horizon.  It definitely means that I’m approaching my running differently, but I’m having a great time so. … Read the rest
