Exercising when pregnant

I always loved to exercise every day but when I got pregnant I felt so sick for the first 12 weeks and I couldn't get off the couch. After a while, I started feeling better and I knew I wanted to get back into exercise again, not just for me but also for the baby. This blog has some tips on types of exercise to suit every type of pregnancy, whether you feel great or whether you feel terrible and can hardly move. I hope it inspires other pregnant mamas to get out there and starting exercising more during their pregnancies.

Women Runners: Are You More Likely to Experience an Injury?

Sustaining an injury is something every runner dreads. It's not always so much the pain and discomfort that's what causes the fear — although, certainly, that can be pretty unpleasant.
