Many pregnant women do like to keep up with a gentle exercise routine while expecting, but it’s doubtful that many would fancy doing an 800m running race.
However, a five-time national champion did just that and ran it in just over two minutes – all while she was 34-weeks pregnant.
The 28-year-old runner, who received a standing ovation after completing the race in 2 minutes, 32.13 seconds, said: ‘I’ve been running throughout my pregnancy and I felt really, really good during the whole process.’
Her finishing time was 35 seconds slower than her personal best of 1:57.34, which she smashed back in 2010 in a race in Monaco.
Do you think this was safe? encouraging or just dangerous. I would like to see your comments,opinions and comments.
