If yes, how often and what are you doing?
I've been active a few times a week. I do my prenatal DVD (cardio and light weights and an exercise band), yoga and intense hiking.
It's becoming quite a challenge to stay motivated. Just curious about you ladies.
Location: Some island in the middle of nowhere, Alaska
I just started working out because the snow and ice is finally melting!! (I hate indoor exercising) I haven't seen pavement in 7 months!! I've been walking about 2.5-5 miles per day, walking before and after work
I exercise a lot in the summer, but am totally worthless in the winter!
Yes, my parents own an athletic club, so it's been easy for me. I usually go about 3-4 days a week doing the eliptical, stair stepper, and treadmill. About once a week I throw in a Zumba class too. I love working out, but lately I have been getting hotter, faster.
Yes. Up until this week I've been running 20 miles per week (over 4 or 5 days) but have had to slow down (against my will) due to SPD. So am now doing two runs per week plus gym and a spinning class. Am going to try and keep going for as long as possible. If it wasn't for the SPD I would still be running 20-25 miles/week as cardio wise I feel fine. It's SO annoying!!!
I've been very physically active still... my job is rather physically demanding, so while I've managed to alter some of the duties to avoid super heavy lifting it usually means walking back and forth more often to make more trips, which evens out the 'exercise' portion of it considerably so that I'm not really making it any less strenuous just less dangerous for my body.
I am however glad that I'm moving in 2.5 weeks because I'm really beginning to feel the discomforts of third tri begin to set in periodically. Today I have sore feet, sore back, sore leg and sore hips... :\
