It’s a question I have been asked a few times…does the pregnancy make you stronger? Does is make you faster?
I have mulled this over in my mind a lot over the last few weeks and I think I have an answer.
No it doesn’t make me stronger but it does mean I am more in tune with my body and have found that all the changes to my body have meant I have become more efficient at using my body.
To explain that a bit further.
My mid-section has quite obviously changed beyond recognition I don’t have the same mid-line stability as I did before, which is when I have to start making the way I brace really count. I need to make sure that I can call on the rest of my body and ask it to work that bit harder to make sure I am safe.
As for the pregnancy making me faster..well some days I am on form and others I am sluggish and tired. I am jsut really glad I can keep up some kind of routine.
