I went for a 5k run today, the first one in a month. I finally got to try my new maternity belt, and I have to say-it really did help! I was still in need of a pee for most of the run, but not as desperately as I was last time (when I considered not caring about the fact that everybody would be able to see me next to the track...).
As you can tell from the photograph, the belt is HUGE, but it fits snugly and is very easy to maneuver thanks to all the velcro both to the front and to the sides. There are few other training forms that can make me feel as great as a good run can. The rhythm, the breathing, the air, the mental clarity, the lightness and the indescribable buzz your body goes through from all the endorphins....wow, yes, it is addictive.
I just hope my body will let me keep the running going for another couple of months. Fingers crossed.
