Scheduling swimming around the demands of having kids...
I’m a bit depressed and frustrated about not being able to fit swimming into my life lately. I have a 5 year old, a 3 year old and an 8 month old. When I just had the two kids I was able to train a few times per week and I did a 5k and a 10k, but now in the past year since getting pregnant I’ve only swam a handful of times.
My youngest is starting to need me less in the mornings and at bed time so I’m hoping to work some type of regular swim schedule back into my life. I’m sure there are others here with young kids or older kids that are busy with activities etc. What do your training schedules look like?
When I had only 2 kids I trained for my 10k on Tuesday/Thursday evening swims for 1 1/2 hours plus a long swim on Sundays. Now with 3 I think I’d feel bad leaving my husband on his own to put all 3 to bed so I might try to become a morning person and do 6am swims. For those of you that do morning swims how do you manage to fit the swim in and get the kids all ready for school/daycare etc. and still make it to work on time?
