While the first part of this episode is dedicated to the precautions a pregnant mother should take with regards to athletic endeavors, there are many benefits to running while pregnant including the prevention of excessive weight gain. Running while you’re pregnant can keep you mood off and help to prevent pregnancy induced hypertension.
If you’re healthy, and you’re having a healthy pregnancy there is no reason not to run. Listen to your body, and check with your doctor. It’s probably best not to run an Ultra marathon, or compete in a major race where you might feel obligated to run hard. Remember, you’re running for yourself and your unborn…and while running can be good for you and make you feel better: what’s most important is that you are healthy and well prepared on your child or children’s birthday as you go through one of the greatest athletic event that a woman will ever experience…the marathon of labor.
