Taking a break from epic climbs/descents

For several months, I'm just sticking to easier and safer rolling hills for a while.

After that I'm might try training with some added weight.

Mrs. Oldstrong and I are very happy for you, you will love being a mom. Kids are game changers but in a kind of super awesome way.

No ideas yet. I'm at 11 weeks, official due date is July 29. I'd be ok with not finding out but I think MrI will want to.

Either way I'm sure it will be "Incredible"! We're all waiting for the hatchling!

2 weeks of business travel made it hard for me to update.

I'm at 13.5 weeks now.

Here's the ultrasound from 11.5 weeks, everything looks good so far.



Just for comparison, here was the one at 7.5 weeks - what a difference 4 weeks makes!



I do have a little bump now but my clothes are still hiding it so far.

Here I am dressed up for my concert at 12 weeks:



Starting to feel a little better now I'm in the second trimester, nausea is down and energy levels are coming back up.

Strong legs - probably a sprinter!
Big head - good luck finding a helmet that size!
Enhorabuena.
