The keys to making time are determination, organization, routine and flexibility.
The bottom line is that if something is important to us, we will make time to do it. During pregnancy a multitude of other things will seem more important than running, but remember that running is important for mommy and for baby.
For mommy, running reduces nausea, fatigue, constipation and lower back pain. It also elevates her mood and energy level.
For baby, running (or any regular cardio fitness regimen) increases blood circulation and placental efficiency, as well as helps to reduce baby fat without negatively affecting normal body weight.
During pregnancy, there are plenty of important reasons to make time to run.
