Some new parents worry that a new baby will limit their opportunities to carry on training.

Leading up to the birth of my son I was determined that I wouldn't let fatherhood get in the way of my training regime. Here's what I've been up to for the last week:

Monday

-

Tuesday

5 minutes jogging on the spot at 2am praying that he won't wake up again.

Wednesday

-

Thursday

-

Friday

-

Saturday

Get ready for parkrun but spend the next hour mopping up various bodily fluids.

Sunday

Put my Garmin on ebay and order a pizza.

Good luck to all the running mums and dads out there!
