Why I stopped running during my pregnancy

Actually I stopped exercising all together, but let’s start at the beginning.

The journey so far

I found out I was pregnant sometime in May, day 36 of my cycle. I remember that clearly. At first I thought that was a nice change from my first pregnancy where I found out about it already two months pregnant. Yes, that can happen. Easily. Anyway, turns out it’s not so nice after all because it feels like the wait is that much longer. In my mind my first pregnancy lasted 7 months (plus the 10 day I was overdue), this one is going to last 8 months (hopefully without additional waiting).

Truth be told it would had been the same had I not taken that test. The sickness that followed almost immediately would have given up the news anyway.

Nike+ Running

The new Nike+ Run Club

Nike+ Running has evolved into Nike+ Run Club. This used to be my favourite running app and it just got updated to a whole new level.

But let’s start at the beginning.

I probably mentioned at some point that I started running when I bought a Nike+ sensor and attached it to the first generation iPod Nano. Yes, those were the times. So this naturally leads you to using the whole Nike+ ecosystem and when I moved to using the iPhone+GPS+app combination instead of the sensor I just naturally went with the same app since it also had all my previous data.

5 tips for running in the summer

If you don’t want to pause your running efforts during the summer months, you’re training for a fall race or like me you just miss it and want to start again, there are certain modifications you need to do in order to adapt to training in higher temperatures. They might seem obvious at first but we forget about them way too often and they make such a difference that i feel like thy must be repeated every once in a while.
