Can You Run Through Pregnancy?

May 07 2019, - by Andrea Ross

It used to be the protocol that when you found out you were pregnant, you were basically wrapped in bubble wrap and told not to move. Now, apart from the eating (and the obvious drinking) restrictions, the advice generally now is to stay as active as possible – within reason*. Why has the advice changed? Well, as with most of our medical advice from years ago our knowledge of everything has evolved (Hinman et al 2015). Remember when we used to put everyone on bed rest when there was something wrong with them? Now, they want you to move as much as possible. Research has told us that activity and fitness can help with most problems from depression to back pain (Stanton & Reaburn, 2014; Vanti et al 2017), so it's no surprise that the advice has changed for pregnancy too.  ..

Instead of sweeping it under the rug, we wanted to find out if there is anything to help prevent it - because, although very natural, it can certainly making racing a much more stressful situation! We asked Alice Hector, a professional triathlete and a 70.3 IRONMAN champion (amongst many other podium achievements that would be too long to list - she's a bit of a superstar!), to help us shed some light on the subject.  ..

Running With A Cold

Mar 26 2018, - by Andrea Ross

I admit, as I sit here writing this, I’m on day 6 of a ‘cold’. This isn’t just any common day cold, but what feels like possibly the worse virus ever (I'm sure it's not, but you get my point). Most runners I know, would probably carry on running through a sniffly nose. Certainly for myself, it takes quite a lot to stop me – perhaps too much? Having written on this topic before, I even found myself ‘googling’ should you be running with a cold – not because I felt like I could by any means, but more to justify to myself that I shouldn’t be.
