|running while pregnant questions,[url=http://billigmonclerjackenkaufen.olimx.com/][b]Billig Moncler Jacken Günstig Kaufen[/b][/url]
I am 23 weeks. I have been slowing way down but honestly want to keep running until at least 30 weeks and I do not want to stop getting a good cardio workout. I need some pointers.
1) Run-walking. How do you do this. I can run but my hips and pelvis start to get mad at me around 3 miles. I would like to be able to go further but walking just doesn't get my heart rate up. How do you all use walking as a useful cardio component.
2) Pace- how slow can you go. Going from 8 minute miles (which is a good 2 minutes slower than I was in college) to 12 minute miles is brutal. I am just wondering how slow you all got. I am hoping to stay at 12 minute miles for a couple fo months at least.
3) lower back pain. I had lower back pain with DS#1 and it is back. I am doing a ton of farm work which involves digging, planting, bending over. That together with running seems to put pressure on my lower back. Any ideas for stretching (I do yoga), stregnthening or support for a lower back.
4) shoes. I am running in very light weight,[url=http://discountnikesoccershoes.webmium.com/][b]Nike Soccer Shoes[/b][/url], not too supportive sneakers. They are great Nikes and I like using good form and it seems my knees etc like these shoes better. However, I feel like my arches are getting a lot of pressure. Any ideas for supportive shoes or inserts? I used to run in New Balance but am thinking about trying out new Nikes.
1. Walk up hills to get a good cardio workout. This may be more of a mental exercise. Pre-natal yoga stretches are great but you also have to do the poses that strengthen your back. My doc told me to get the Baby Hugger support band. I have not yet because it looks ridiculous,[url=http://peutereyoutletitaliaonline.olimx.com/][b]Peuterey Outlet Italia[/b][/url]. Let's see how desperate I get.
4. Arches change in pregnancy,[url=http://woolrichoutletde.albirank.net/][b]Woolrich Arctic Parka[/b][/url]. Not sure what to tell you here because I am a FTM and I haven't figured it out yet.
First, I love to run, but I'm not fast or anything. I'm a die-hard workout person though and have been for years. The biggest issue with running during pg, IMO, is injury bc of "looser" joints d/t the hormones. So if your body says stop, I would stop, but walk OR do something like swimming as it's more joint friendly.
1) Run-walking. How do you do this. I can run but my hips and pelvis start to get mad at me around 3 miles. I would like to be able to go further but walking just doesn't get my heart rate up. How do you all use walking as a useful cardio component. If you can go to 3miles, that's all I'd do and walk the rest or walk until your joints feel better and resume the run. Use the rate of exertion scale to figure out what works for you. do hills or 3. add weights. I wouldn't add wt's bc of your back issue, so aim for a hilly area and to increase your speed. It's a myth to assume you need to run the whole thing. I know that's what you're used to though ;)
2) Pace- how slow can you go. Going from 8 minute miles (which is a good 2 minutes slower than I was in college) to 12 minute miles is brutal. I am just wondering how slow you all got. I am hoping to stay at 12 minute miles for a couple fo months at least. I don't pay attention to pace when I'm pg. I find it counterproductive. It'll change post partum.
3) lower back pain. I had lower back pain with DS#1 and it is back. I am doing a ton of farm work which involves digging, planting, bending over. That together with running seems to put pressure on my lower back. Any ideas for stretching (I do yoga), stregnthening or support for a lower back. I'd start doing some prenatal yoga and back bends. You can look online for these exercises. I would also try to ease up on either the farm work or running honestly. Again,[url=http://rogervivierheelssale.webstarts.com/][b]roger vivier heels[/b][/url], this is normal bc of the hormones so ease up on one or the other and see what works. Either alt days of farm work and running or cut your mileage by 1/4 or walk at least 1/4 of your mileage instead of pushing so hard, etc.
4) shoes. I am running in very light weight, not too supportive sneakers. They are great Nikes and I like using good form and it seems my knees etc like these shoes better. However, I feel like my arches are getting a lot of pressure. Any ideas for supportive shoes or inserts? I used to run in New Balance but am thinking about trying out new Nikes. I never had arch issues, but I will say that I never cared for Nikes bc they have a small toe box and NB's tend to rip easily/fall apart me. I really love Adidas gels and Saucony's. This is personal preference. You could go to a running store and ask. Chances are they would know more to help you. Your feet change during pg,[url=http://duveticadoudoune.halod.com/][b]Femmes Manteaux Duvetica[/b][/url], so I have a feeling this is the real issue and will go away postpartum.
You have my sympathy--I'm also trying to maintain the running, now at 29 weeks, and it's getting tough. I find that I can only run on alternate days b/c my ankles of all things are giving out on me (and I have no history of ankle issues). The elliptical has been easier on this front, and so to the extent that you have joint pain, that may ease things for you if it's an option. Also, the alternate days make a huge difference. On the back and hip front, I don't do any regular yoga in general, and so you're way ahead of me,[url=http://duveticapiumini.olimx.com/][b]duvetica jackets shop[/b][/url], but just hanging out in the child's pose (w/ my knees spread to accomodate the belly) has helped things stretch and release. I even read the newspaper on the floor while essentially doing this. I also sit cross legged at my desk for as much of the day as possible, which helps with both back and hip discomfort. Good luck.
Hi there, I am 34 weeks and still running and I hear you ! : )
1) would rather run till I need to stop. I walk a fair bit anyway. I found the 3 mile mark a real barrier with pelvic pain from about weeks the round ligament) but if I stop and stretch a little and walk for a minute or two I can normally get another mile or two in. I am assuming that I will end up not managing to stay there till the end but I am not stressing I just love to go out there. (I did a runner today so I felt quite chipper)
3)I have had two spinal surgeries some years back and still have low back issues which I can manage. I am fanatical about groin/quads and hamstring stretches but the front loading of weight is hard to counter so not sure about that one. I do often stop mid run to stretch which is a preggers thing, Also I tried a running with a back support which was good until my tummy got too big but as I say I am more comfortable/less pain the last few weeks.
4)My back situation and nerve damage in one leg (leaving one leg weaker) means I need solid shoes. I use Saucony glide I think they are called. But i renewed them mid way through preggers as I felt the need for more support and cushioning. old shoes proabably hada few miles left on them but with the extra wieight I thouight new shoes were a good injury avoidance strategy. Who knows if that will be the case ,[url=http://giuseppezanottichainsandals.olimx.com/][b]discount giuseppe zanotti sandals[/b][/url]?
I hope you find some hints and tricks to let you continue to enjoy yer running. Take care Tess
Hi! I love when I read posts about women who want to continue running while pregnant. I ran in my 2nd and 3rd pregnancies. With my 2nd pregnancy I ran until 38w4d (delivered my perfect baby at 39w2d). I maintained a 10-min mile pace. Although, I did alternative between running one day to the elliptical the next. I would do 6-8 miles day (either running or elliptical). My 3rd pregnancy I ran more. I actually would do about miles every day during that pregnancy. I felt more confident in safety of exercise during my 3rd pregnancy. Maybe I got used to it, I don't know. So, I would always try and then see how I felt that day. I wouldn't stop completely and lose your conditioning or else you really won't be able to run past a certain week mark. answer your questions.
