This woman has stunned so many after running a five-minute 25-second mile in the ninth month of pregnancy. She advises pregnant who want to stay fit to learn the importance of balance.
This woman, who is nine months pregnant, ran for incredible five minutes 25-second mile while her husband continued to cheer her on.
Makenna Myler, 28, is a fitness freak who loves to run. This time the woman stunned so many women by running a mile while being nine-month pregnant.
Usually, a non-competitive fairly healthy runner would complete a mile in around nine to ten minutes on average.
If someone is new at running, then he/she would probably come in at between 12 and 15 minutes. But only an elite marathon runner would do a mile in about four to five minutes.
Makenna Myler says she could push herself further than she thought.
Speaking to LADbible, she said: "Honestly I had no idea I'd be capable of running that time by the end of my pregnancy. I took everything week by week.
"I love trying so by the time nine months rolled around, I thought 'why not?' I don't HAVE to do anything, I GET to do it. That mindset makes it more fun."
The woman told due to her pregnancy, she had to change up her routine.
She said: "My training regime changed a ton to accommodate growing another human. I went from double days and three intense workouts a week to one a days and maybe one workout a week, if that.
"Sometimes it was just easy running. A lot of letting my body dictate recovering over working hard."
She added: "My first doctor was very supportive. Then we moved. My second doctor was a bit more cautious. Then we had an ultrasound. Everything looked great and he's given me the green light ever since."
Makenna advises other young women who want to stay fit during pregnancy to learn the importance of balance. Besides that, she also advises them to consult their doctor before starting any new training while pregnant.
She explained: "Revel in the beauty of recovery and being at peace with small efforts, but also know you are so much more capable than you think you are."
