Marathons After Babies

If you were forced to make a list of the hardest things to do in life, there is a good chance that some activities that might have some similar challenges would be somewhere near the top of your list. For example, running a marathon would almost certainly be near the top of the list.

After all, the first person to ever run a marathon died from it because there is just simply nothing that is easy about running twenty-six point two miles. Likewise, there is simply nothing easy about giving birth to a baby.

Sure, this process is more natural, but there is no doubt that there is a great deal of pain involved in it. Additionally, these two challenging practices exhibit some of the same qualities.

For example, when you are training for a marathon, you tend to get less sleep than you might otherwise be used to and suddenly water is something that you can just not get enough of.

You know, just like when you’re pregnant! Additionally, you might try to eat more because you need more food when you are training or when you are with child, but you might not always be able to stomach it.

It would stand to reason that once a woman has given birth to a baby, she would be entirely uninterested in running a marathon. But for those out there who might just want to do so anyway should definitely heed the necessary bits of advice that would come with such an idea.

In fact, doctors tend to give advice to women who fancy themselves runners that, when they become pregnant, they should absolutely try to keep running while they are pregnant because it will become just that much easier to get back into the swing of things once they have given birth.
