I am starting to really like data. It is my role in public education that has taught me to have an appreciation for data.
For the past several years I have kept a record of my daily workouts.
Above is my mileage over the past year.
A story begins to emerge when you look at the numbers.
Aug 2012-became pregnant, mileage tapered
Aug 2012-Feb 2013: ran pregnant with zero problems, was running 15 milers through November
Mar 2013-started to get big, wore a pregnancy support belt for the 9 miles that I ran during that month. Walked a ton of miles that were not logged
Apr 2013-Callum born on April 22, pretty much walked, swam, and did yoga
May 2013-so ready to run again. managed 44 miles within the several weeks that he was born
May 2013 to present day-things are normal
