Zoe's Story

I had lots of comments along the lines of “be careful!”

I also had a couple of “you go girl” comments! 

I have always done lots of exercise and so it was not a decision I made to continue when I found out I was pregnant, I just carried on running daily as I had been.

I then decided to set myself the goal of running 1000 miles while I was pregnant. It was an interesting experience as my bump became visible to see the change in people I passed. I was aware that I was being looked at more and overheard one lady say to her daughter “she’s mad!” I had lots of comments along the lines of “be careful!” I also had a couple of “you go girl” comments! 

I definitely felt the benefits of having continued exercising while pregnant in labour and now that I have had my baby, I can feel my body is rebuilding strength surprisingly quickly. I managed to complete my goal of 1000 miles and I am looking forward to slowly returning to running over the next few months.
