Pregnancy Running

Pregnant Running

Pregnant Running
The old-school thinking about pregnancy was that women should exercise very little--or not at all. Fortunately, times have changed, and doctors routinely advise expectant mothers to stay active.
After you get your doctor's go-ahead, your mileage is determined in part by how much you were doing before. If you regularly ran five miles a day, you can keep logging those miles, albeit at a gradually slowing pace. So if you ran an eight-minute mile, you may find an 11-minute mile during pregnancy is just as challenging.
As your due date approaches, lower-impact activities like swimming and walking may be more comfortable.
Continuing to run during pregnancy isn't only about doing something you enjoy. Studies show that exercise improves the health of mom and baby--it lessens back pain, prevents excessive weight gain, improves sleep quality, and reduces delivery complications and time spent in labor.
