Your body remembers and retains the "how-to" information on running, leaping, swinging, swimming, biking, reaching, and jumping. While you may get tired, and your leaps may not be quite the leaps they once were, your body knows what to do and will regain the form you once had with practice.
I'm 23 years old. 5'7" and was about 126lbs at the start of the year. I decided to start running as part of my New Years Resolution. I'm in no way a "runner" and much more than a mile or so is tough but I have stuck to it. I am now 120lbs and my period is late.
Dear Fitness Expert,
My husband and I have been trying for 1 1/2; years to conceive and are now under the care of a reproductive endocrinologist. I have been an avid runner and do some moderate weight lifting for about 6 years now. We had the Intrauterine Insemination a little over a week ago and I am dying to work out, but many people have said to just hang tight for a couple of weeks.
Is this necessary? Will running or lifting some weights have any affect on conception? Please advise...
This morning I was running with G. (my former smoker who is up to 5.5 miles now.) She was running very slowly this morning and I finally asked, what's up. She confessed that her hamstring is sore. As we plodded along, she said it was really only her right and it was really, really tight.
Dear Fitness Expert,
I did fine during pregnancy. I kept jogging until about the last 7 weeks. Then I walked. I assumed I could just pick up again once the baby was here. I have the okay from the doctor to start jogging again, but here's the problem. I'm breastfeeding and my boobs HURT when I run.
What can I do to lessen the pain? I am really looking forward to being on the go again.
Before you begin exercising, remember that it is important to talk to your doctor. If you are already exercising, you may be able to keep up with your routine and adapt it as you grow. Keep your heart rate under 160 beats per minute and avoid overheating, especially in your first trimester.
