Generally when a new year rolls around everyone hits the gym in an attempt to fulfill their unrealistic New Year’s resolutions. Apparently with pregnancy I’m supposed to “take it easy” in the exercise realm, so this year’s resolution won’t involve any races just a commitment to keep putting on the tennis shoes (even if Noel has to tie them) and get out there. Here’s my inspiration:
When Paula Radcliffe (professional marathoner) was pregnant she had to slow down and log 7 minute miles.
Although my jogging and occasional power walking isn’t quite as hard core, it still makes me happy when I pass people or discover that my speed is faster than the person on the treadmill next to me.
