Hi all! I am a bit shocked to be here as I was expecting it to take a long time to get pregnant. I'm nursing my almost 2 year old whilst also training for a half ironman so I thought my fertility would be compromised so a big surprise to be pregnant the first month, but it does mean I'm missing my race. This doesn't matter in the long term, of course, but I am a little disappointed not to be doing it since I've been training for a long time... Being pregnant is MUCH better, though!
Are any of you planning on working out through your pregnancy? I did with my first though I was not doing tris then and mostly kept to the gym as I could no longer bike outside or row. We have a really motivating keeping fit thread when I was last pregnant so I'm hoping there are some others out there... runners, walkers, lifters, cyclists, and in fact anything slightly physical counts :)
I was very sick last time around and even though I am barely pregnant (12 DPO) I already feel queasy and yuck so this might be a challenge. I am about to try and run. I ran 12 miles on Saturday before I got a positive and now I realise why the run was so dreadful. Time to dial it back a bit but I'm hoping to run as long as is possible, bike outside for the next couple of months (until a fall would become dangerous to the baby), swim throughout, and probably add in some gym work as the weather gets colder.
Right.. watch me sit on the couch for the next 3 months!
