Amy on Taking a Break to Focus on the Marathon of Motherhood Well Far: The Running Podcast

    • Running

Well Far is taking a short break. In the spirit of practising what you preach, the Well far team and I are taking a short hiatus before coming back for the season finale in two Sundays time. 
I hope that the last three months of episodes have helped you find your focus and be more aware of how you spend your energy, and actually taking some time to be mindful about where I spend my energy is the reason for this update. Throughout this podcast, I've not shied away from talking about mental health. I've spoken about my eating disorder and how running became a part of the scaffolding that's helped to hold me up after, but now with a new baby, I found that my foundations aren’t so steady and so I need some time to work on them. 
In truth, I always thought I'd be a mother who'd be able to have it all and do it all because I could spin many plates. But with a new baby it’s much harder to keep those plates in the air. Which is why I'm sharing today’s update as I don't think there should be any shame in admitting that juggling babies with work and workouts is complicated. 
Until we return, keep getting out there and making the most of the time in your trainers and supporting your (virtual) crew around the world.
