TIPS FOR RUNNING IN PREGNANCY

🏃‍ Don’t aim for personal bests.

🏃‍ Run for enjoyment and physical and mental wellbeing without any pressure to stick to a plan.

🏃‍ Stay hydrated and ensure adequate food intake.

🏃‍ Many women find maintaining regular running hard in the first trimester due to nausea and fatigue, however, this usually subsides during the second trimester and many women feel able to return to more regular running throughout the second, and some, into the third trimester.

🏃‍ If you start to find running too uncomfortable, switch to static cycling, appropriate strength training, swimming, walking or yoga.

🏃‍ Continue appropriate strength training, start pelvic floor exercises, ensuring you are doing them correctly and timing appropriately with abdominal muscle contraction (seek advice if unsure).

Great work from Emma Archer. Check out the full article for more...

The number and age of female recreational runners is increasing, demonstrating a significant number of women of childbearing age running competitively, many who may wish to continue their training while pregnant. Despite copious evidence suggesting exercise including running is safe during pregnancy, there appears to be a lack of knowledge among obstetric health care professionals and fitness professionals.

Running Technique Analysis - Quick Form Tips

Every runner’s technique is individual. If you ever get a chance to see a video of yourself, or another athlete running, use the tips in this video to assess whether or not you’re overstriding, and how your effective your stride pattern is.

If you can teach yourself how to run with your foot striking the ground under a flexing knee, you’ll be placing less stress and impact on joints such as the knee it self.

Both increasing running cadence (stride frequency) and increasing hip and knee flexion for a given pace will help you land closer to beneath your knee, rather than excessively ahead of yourself with an overstride.

Check out this video for more of an insight into how improve your running form...

You have Plantar Fasciitis… Now what?

Great advice from Shawn Gerber on how to manage this stubborn injury...


Plantar Fasciitis has a tendency to become quite stubborn and persistent if not cared for properly. Proper rest, recovery and tissue management are all key components to resolving this foot injury, but many runners hope to continue training through the recovery process.
