I started exercising about 4 months ago, with intense workouts. I'm still over weight but much more physically fit than before. I'm still doing exercises 6 days a week, not as intense as the beginning but now doing p90x. (intense enough lol)



I suspect pregnancy because I've got that lower tummy feeling I did with my first, but not sure yet. I still have half a week to a week to find out for sure. It could be period pains, idk..



I am wanting to do a mud run 5K, its a run, walk, obstacle course and it is this weekend. Possibly when I can find out. lol the tickets are non-refundable, and I don't want to put a baby at risk at all.



Do you think it could be harmful if I am pregnant?

My first pregnancy, I didn't workout at all. I was too afraid, so I don't know the limits. Thanks for the advice in advance!

My SIL is 5 months now and continues to run in half marathons, yet she has been doing that for years so her body is used to it. Granted it is a regular plotted course, so no mud, which could cause different stress points on the body than pavement does.

It would be harmful if your body was not already used to this kind of excercise, but since it is you SHOULD be ok, but I would check with the doctor first. I know people who have run marathons, and horseback riding etc....but their bodies were already used to this kind of activity.
