After about 3 months of laying in bed, puking, sitting on the couch, puking, feeling really sorry for myself, and not much else......I went for a run tonight!!!
In my vibrams even! It was only a little over 2 miles, and I was really slow (we're talking Ironman marathon slow). But ohmygoodnessI'msoexcited I finally went for a run! One of the hardest parts about being so sick for most of this pregnancy has been not being able to continue with a workout schedule. In late-November 2011 I completed Ironman Arizona. And in mid-December I was pregnant. While I am eternally grateful that we were able to conceive so quickly, this means that I went from full on Ironman training (for about a year) to being completely sedentary in the span of a month. This hasn't done good things for my physical or mental health.
So tonight I was the girl plodding down the sidewalk with a big ass grin plastered across my face. And a lot of bouncing body parts that I didn't have to worry about until now. And yes, wearing triathlon clothes that are now about 3 sizes too small and ride up in weird places. Which has led me to begin the search for some sort of belly support. And maternity workout clothes. Ladies - what advice do you have to keep the preggo belly bounce under control? And what are your favorite stores/websites for maternity workout wear?
