All the rules like stick to less than 2 miles or a heart rate under 140 are all arbitrary. They are just some number somebody came up with. I took down my mileage for about 6 months trying to conceive with no luck. As soon as I started running more mileage- I finally got pregnant! Every person is different when it comes to effort and heart rate. For the first 1/2 of my pregnancy I did up to 12 mile runs and races at a pretty compet_tive pace. I did workouts which included intervals and sprints. You do not have to stay "able to talk". Whoever came up with these rules didn't know enough compet_tive runners. It won't hurt your baby as long as you feel well. :)

Good advice. I recently just miscarried, but when I get pregnant again, I do plan to continue jogging as exercise.

Great advice! I job every other day and plan to continue once I get pregnant.

Going for a run is a quick and effective way to work your heart and body, giving you a mental and physical boost when you feel tired. Plus, like walking, it's easy to fit into your schedule.
