Becoming pregnant doesn’t mean an end to exercise. Despite old wives’ tales and mother-to-be nerves, the medical community is embracing the idea of a fit and healthy pregnancy. Finally pregnant athletes have a book just for them. A running coach and doctor guide women through how to train, what is safe, and what are the limits of exercising from conception through the first months after delivery.
