Would you do a crop walk?

My husband and I signed up months ago to do a crop walk to raise money for charity in our city.  The walk is 5 miles and it's this Sunday.


I feel like a big weenie for not wanting to do it, but I honestly don't think it would be a great idea.  I know I would have to really push myself considering how tired, hungry, and general bla I have been feeling.


I am an active person: I do exercise classes and I walk at least 30 minutes a day with my dog to stay fit.  But as of late it always wipes me.


I looked to see if I could just complete part of the walk and then bow out, but the course is structured so that you can't turn around...once you start, you've got to do the whole thing.


I feel so bad, though...because we were planning on doing it with friends.  Would you have done it?

I personally would have, but I was walking 3 miles to and from work every day until I was about 6.5 months.

If you don't feel up to it then you absolutely shouldn't - I know it's for a good cause but your health and taking care of your baby are the most important thing. People will totally understand.

Maybe you could help out at a refreshment stall or something instead??

I hiked for 3.5 hours in Denver last weekend- it started rough- but then it felt good to be out and being active since my work out schedule has decreased since I found out I was preg...so it felt good to know I am NOT that out of shape! lol. 


Hope if you did it- it was fun!

I used to be a runner before TTCing (still a runner at heart :). So I'd say i was pretty active. But during my first 11 weeks, my energy level was so low. I went to bed at 830 almost every night and on weekends, woke up at 11am. I even wasted money bc I would sign up for some yoga classes but my fatigue got the best of me and I'd end up skipping classes. My point is, if you missed it, no harm done. You were simply listening to your body. But you should start to feel better And regain some energy in your second trimester that a nice long and brisk walk for a few miles would do you some good.
