Running and pregnancy. There is so much confusing information out there. Is it ok for you to keep running when you have a bun in the oven? Let’s consult the experts.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, in their 2002 report on exercise during and after pregnancy (which was reaffirmed in 2009), states that most women with uncomplicated pregnancies can adopt ASCM recommendation of 30 minutes of moderate exercise on most days of the week. However, most runners get far more activity for that in their general training. Does this mean that active women have to reduce or limit their activity once they get pregnant?
Well, no and yes.
