To Sara of Fit by Sara: “I’ve been a runner all my life, is it safe to continue running throughout my pregnancy?”

From Sara of Fit by Sara: “Be sure to consult with your doctor prior to continuing any exercise when you become pregnant.  After you have spoke with your doctor, if he/she gives you the thumbs up, you can continue to run as long as it feels comfortable in your body.  For many women during the second trimester running begins to feel uncomfortable because the weight of the baby stretches the round ligaments which are used when running.  The key is to listen to your body and stop doing anything that doesn’t feel right.  There are plenty of other options including power walking, swimming, and yoga.” –Sara Holliday
