if she wants to avoid running 26 miles with a large belly, then yes, definitly.

But then she won't be able to run a marathon without a pelvic floor, either!

I think she should stop. Sounds so boring to run, run,run....

I wouldn't put off children personally but it depends how important that is to her. If it's majorly important then if I was her then I'd try for a baby because nobody knows how easy or not it's going to be for them to get pregnant.

surely she hasn't go long left as a professional athlete? Aren't you over the hill by 35?

risky strategy IMO.
I'm on 12 months and counting TTC so you never know what's going to happen. Also, if you're uber fit like that you can actually damage your body (in terms of concieving anyway).

I just don'thave the same respect for her after athens

well, she was a bit upset that she no longer has my support but you know, she has to realise that I just can't look on her in the same way
