Midday is currently my best time to work out (when I feel best) but hardly ever practical.
I forgot about this thread, oops. I've only been to the gym a couple of times since joining this thread. Did a pump class a couple of weeks ago, lightened most of my weights and had to have a couple of breaks. Felt so weak and exhausted, then came down with a nasty cold a couple of days later. Managed to go back to the gym yesterday and do a Tabata class which I loved before pregnancy. The instructor was new so I told her I was pregnant in case there were any technique changes I had to make, and because I didn't have a medical clearance she wouldn't let me get my heart rate over 140! I felt like such a slacker as she kept coming over to check it so I could hardly do anything. Was a pretty pointless class I think. Have a doctors appointment next week so I'll ask him to write something up saying I am ok to exercise. I was going to the gym 3-4 times a week before pregnancy so I'm fit and can handle a Tabata class. I know not to push myself too hard and stop when I need to.
Going to another pump class tomorrow and hopefully I'll be able to do slightly normal weights.
12+1 today and had my NT scan which showed a happy bubba bouncing around 😊
I guess some instructors are just worried about liability or something?
All you girls doing pump is making me want to join a gym again.
Managed to get up and go for a walk this morning with the toddler. Although my walks are now pretty slow paced as my hips are sore. Pushing the pram up a small slope was an effort!
Me too - lovely out this morning. I didn't go until 7 but the weather here today has a spring feel to it 😊
Pregnant for the first-time?
