The good news about jogging during pregnancy is that it is safe to practice the activity during pregnancy unless you have a high-risk pregnancy.
Before you go out jogging, there are some factors that you should consider, such as precipitation, temperature, level of traffic and amount of daylight left.
While you are running, the best thing you can do is to listen to your body. If you are getting tired you should slow down the pace or start walking.
It is possible for you to feel some discomfort in your abdomen because of the pressure on the pelvic muscles and the impact of jogging. If you experience this, maybe it is time to think of another activity to practice.
How to do it
When thinking about jogging while being pregnant you should be really careful regarding your clothing. You should start with a supportive sports bra. Then make sure that your clothing is right for the weather.
Your shoes should offer you cushioning and stability and it is also important to have good socks. If you are travelling, you should take your running shoes with you. Ask a concierge to recommend you a safe running route close to the hotel.
Jogging is a great way to see a new city. However if you feel more comfortable indoors, you could use the treadmill. You don’t really need earphones. Instead take a friend or your phone with you.
Make sure that you discuss with your healthcare provider about pregnancy jogging. For sure he or she will have a few recommendations for you. As it has been mentioned before, having the right clothing is very important.
In order to avoid overheating you should also think about layering. Check your breathing rate and adjust the intensity of the workout accordingly. Make sure that you have enough water while jogging.
