There used to be a pregnant runners thread but it did get a bit quiet so this one has always been good as a back up as there are quite a few of us who have had kids and continued running. I should think the thread has covered most things over the years!!
I also did a very smug 5 mile run up the hill here and averaged 9.17min miles - was so chuffed. This time last year I was having to walk up the worst of it and all my miles were sub 10min and the one coming down was 8.20 which averaged my splits nicely! Most of it is a fire track through woods - we saw deer a couple of weeks ago, the wild boar are hiding, but a bird of prey swooped right through the trees in front of me - was fab!
Nessie - can't believe you were nearly 44 when you had your second, I'm 41 now and really could not face pregnancy now but then I've got three to deal with so obviously that clouds the picture!!! If someone could do the whole carrying bit I'd happily do labour and pop one out though.
Tri girl - def don't read back too much, we share plenty on here, it might make your eyes water!
Caro - will have to weigh B - can't imagine running and pushing him and he's 3 on the 21st but he is massive! I took him for a hair cut this week and he was bigger than a boy a year older than him who was sitting so nicely. Luckily the hairdresser was very quick and I only had to offer up a couple of bribes (to him) to get the job done!
Hi Trigirl - I'd say if you think you want to start trying then just do it as it may take a little while to conceive and you can keep training up until then. I think most of us found we could train for longer and get fitness back fairly easily after our first, its just fitting it all in and listening to your body and not overdoing it that is key. Good luck!
Well done Camlo - especially with the weather we were having! I'd have stayed indoors!
Nessie - well done! I'm a parents race shirker too, if they did a proper race I might do it, but the whole turn up on skiddy grass and try not to fall over aspect means I'd rather leave it to others!!
