Listen to your body

Posted on July 12 2017

Screen-Shot-2017-09-29-at-3.45.12-PM“I learned to listen to my body above what has worked for someone else. Every pregnancy is different and every stage of pregnancy varies. I really didn’t run much during my first trimester because it just didn’t feel right. I would get dizzy and weak, and I just felt like normal training wasn’t beneficial. I mostly skied, hiked and did short runs. Now, I am well into my third trimester and running a lot more than the early months, and I feel so much better and stronger. Some women experience the complete opposite, so I think it’s important to remember that every body is unique in how it responds to pregnancy. In general, I think it’s good to just focus on getting outside, moving in a way that makes you feel better and letting go of any particular training goals. It was hard for me to not get discouraged by decreasing mileage, slower paces and losing fitness. But, then I realized that the main objective of running during pregnancy was to improve the health of the baby, and I would never do anything to take away from that.”- HOKA Athlete Alicia Vargo
