Totally excluding having a child, training just as a 35-year-old athlete has to look different than training as a 23-year-old athlete. It’s just your body has certain strengths. Like I’m better aerobically now than I was before, but I don’t recover as quickly. And so I’ve already had to adjust training in some ways because of just where I am in my training life. But you know, I feel like all of those challenges can get more exaggerated when you have a little child to care for. So it’s just taken a little bit more flexibility and the ability to adapt.”
