Les Mills Combat at 36 weeks prego!
For the second part of my gym evening, I did 30 minutes of a body flow class and made it right up until hip openers (sooo needed at this point for me), then I packed up my gear early and went for my weekly 1 hour massage. Because to me it makes so much more sense to get a massage after a workout, that way all my normal aches and pains are easy to identify and the therapist (Ed, who does A.R.T>which actually means torture) can help fix the problem area's. I'm not going to lie to you, I was actually practicing my "labour breathing" because he was "working" /torturing some very tight and weak muscles. But now as I'm typing this I can truly say the pain was worth it because my SI joint (the place where the sacrum and the iliac bone meet up in the lower back) is virtually pain-free!
Whether you are pregnant or not, old or young just listen to your body! And be brave enough to do something you (and many other people) might not think possible. You will always feel a sense of pride at doing something new or scary! Now how often in a day can you say "I FEEL PROUD OF MYSELF". It's an awesome feeling!
