For this week's Reader to Reader article
Hi. I've just found out I'm pregnant for the first time. I had thought that it would be fine to continue running and from what I've read on this site that seems to be the consensus. My Dr said I might need to cut back on my running. I am entered in the Reading Half Marathon for the second year and am trying to decide if I should continue to train for it, or if I should just keep running shorter distances. I have been averaging about 15-20 miles a week. So far I don't feel any different to normal but I don't to overdo things. Anyone got any advice?
Have a look under the Health & Injury Forum and somewhere near the top should be the Pregnant Runners Thread and also the Mums Running Club which are both full of people who have run through pregnancy etc (I would post links but I'm rubbish at that). You will find plenty of useful advice in there - look forward to seeing you there.
