Running

So I've always been very active.  I've been runinng for years, but for the last few months I was slacking a bit because of working so much.  I also havent been making it to the gym much.  I used to spin twice a week and do yoga and bootcamp classes as well.  Right before I found out I was pregnant i started running again.  Nothing crazy  about 4 miles 2-3 times a week.  Not I'm afraid to keep it up.  I know if you are a runner it's fine, but was my hiatus too long?  Dyou think I would be ok maybe going 2 times a week at slower pace.  And maybe spinning once, but not pushing myself?  I just feel better when I exercise.  Not really concerned about gaining/;loosing weight. Thanks in advance!

    If your active you should be fine. Listen to your body, if you get tired slow down and walk a mile or run for less. With spinning if you start getting tired ease the resistance or slow down pedaling. you can tell the instructor you KU so she can help you gage where you should be

    My ob/gyn told me to keep doing what I was doing but just listen to my body. As long as you can still speak a full sentence throughout your exercises routine, you should be fine. Keep water nearby and take breaks as needed. I currently do prenatal yoga, run 3 miles several times a week (at a much slower pace due to how I feel plus the heat!), and a prenatal cardio/weight program.

    I had a friend run a half marathon in her third tri.   Just listen to your body and drink lots of water.

    If you were doing it regularly before pregnancy then it's safe to say you are fine to do it during pregnancy. Just listen to your body.

    Constant water intake, up those calories (so you don't burn them off before the baby gets to them), and taper yourself down as you get further along (you'll likely feel less and less like doing it, anyway - but the doc will hopefully recommend reducing that kind of activity to a walk by the third trimester). Should be just fine.

    I was running before I got pregnant and my doctor told me to watch my heart rate. I know many doctors have stopped suggesting this but some still hold on to it. My doc wants me to keep my heart rate around 140. Any higher and it can put the baby in distress. At first for me that mean't only walking and now that im nearning the second trimester my heartrate stays at 140 with a light jog. I am not a high risk or anything. I am a healthy 23 year old. I still do weight lifting and toning along with the treadmill and bike.

    Hope this helps....GL!
