Tiny Changes

"True life is lived when tiny changes occur."
Leo Tolstoy

My tiny changes this weekend? After being very sleep deprived the last two to three weeks (Patrick having regressed to only sleeping 4 hours at night) Mr.ncot and I did the following:

- Alan stayed up Friday night / Saturday morning and I got 6 hours sleep in one stretch!
- Yesterday I had a 2 hour nap in the afternoon
- Yesterday evening i had a long soak in the bath
- Today i am going to attempt a walk/run and then hope to paint my nails :-)

Today I found some running kit, squeezed my poor nursing boobs into 2 running bras, put on my trainers and got my sorry post natal ass out of the door!

I walked for 4 minutes, ran for 1 min, along the Sihl river lap and it took me just under 20 minutes. I felt great, got some fresh air in my lungs and got my blood moving round my body. My boobs didn't leak and (ahem) my pelvic floor was also up to the task :-)

My goal? Increase my speed and gradually decrease walking and increas running. Wonder how fast I can do this lap by Christmas?
