Now that I’m into the second trimester my energy is back to near-normal levels. I don’t feel sick in the mornings, although I am overly tired in the afternoons. But I am able to surf again without feeling exhausted just from walking down the beach. I’m trying to take it a bit easy and not wrench my core on cutbacks, takeoff on gnarly waves, or attempt turns I’m unlikely to make. Taking it easy is easier when the waves are smaller. A few days ago, we had a nice clean swell and though I was working – coaching ladies on a Surf With Amigas retreat – I was able to sneak in a few waves of my own. We’ll see how long I can keep up this level of surfing….
