Uhhhhhh, what? Say that again?
That was my initial reaction after hearing that Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie Douthit wants to run a 5K -- even though she's 36 weeks pregnant.
Are you believing this?
Yep. She only has four weeks or so to go in her pregnancy, and instead of thinking about making last-minute preparations for the baby, she wants to get her work out on.
Check out what she had to say about it on Twitter.
36 weeks pregnant and I feel like tumbling or running a 5k..... hmm— Mackenzie McKee (@DouthitKenzie) January 27, 2014
Tumbling? Like, as in doing somersaults? (I must be missing something here.)
Ok, so I really can't blame the girl for wanting to stay in shape throughout her pregnancy, but at 36 weeks? Sheesh. Most gals are lucky to be able to get up off the couch without breaking a sweat at that point, let alone muster the energy to run a few miles.
Good for her for not being lazy, but hopefully she knows that it's perfectly ok to be just that during these last few weeks before her baby arrives. I promise, honey -- no one will judge you if you sit on the couch and watch TV all day and eat bon-bons (as cliche as that sounds).
There will be plenty of time for 5K runs after her little bundle shows up. If she knows what's good for her, she'll soak up every extra minute of physical rest she can get before labor sets in.
Would you ever consider running a 5K during your last few weeks of pregnancy?
