before pregnancy I was sculling (rowing), road and mountain biking, playing tennis, and more.. at least 6 days a week - sometimes I'd do two activities a day! Alas... severe morning sickness and fatigue meant that from 6 weeks on I've done barely nothing. Last week I started to feel a little bit better and joined a gym. I am SO out of shape, already. It's a bit depressing, but I've completely changed the activities I'm doing as I stress fractured a rib rowing just before pregnancy and I'm run/walking and today hopped on the elliptical. I had an induction with a trainer who specializes in prenatal fitness and she helped me put together a basic weight training routine, which I really like already.
I'm hoping to exercise throughout as it's such an antidepressant for me and I'm much better to be around when I've moved
But, boy, my resting heartbeat has increased exponentially and I feel really oafish!!
