Pregnant Brit marathoner claims shes running 14 miles a day

Pregnant British marathoner Paula Radcliffe has claimed that she is preparing for the race of her life - The London Olympic Marathon in 2012 by running 14 miles a day with a precision that only a marathon runner can muster.


London, May 31 : Pregnant British marathoner Paula Radcliffe has claimed that she is preparing for the race of her life - The London Olympic Marathon in 2012 by running 14 miles a day with a precision that only a marathon runner can muster.

Now, five months pregnant with her second child, Paula is glowing with health and beaming with pride.

The 36-year-old's famously taut torso is now more curvaceous and she's even grown a voluptuous cleavage, making her wear a sports bra for only the second time in her career, the BBC reports.

Paula, already a mum to three-year-old daughter Isla, is aware childbirth is the biggest endurance test she will face in the run-up to Britain's finest sporting hour.

She says: "The pregnancy has gone better than I thought and the running feels better than it did with Isla. But I know that the birth will be the real test."

Isla had a famously difficult entrance into the world, with Paula enduring a 26-hour labour.

She says: "People say the second time it may be a little easier, but my p*c bones are still as narrow as they were, so there is a part of me that is nervous. When I run, I am used to my body working with me, but giving birth to Isla, it was definitely working against me."

Despite the painful memories of her first delivery, Paula says: "I've been able to keep up my running for most of the pregnancy so far. I've been running around seven miles in about 45 minutes twice a day, combined with altitude and gravity training on a specially designed treadmill."

Paula can take comfort in the fact she is still the finest long- distance female runner of all time, holding the world record for marathon (2hr 15min 25sec) as well as for 10 and 20km road runs.

She and her family now live in Monaco and Paula will give birth there in September before embarking on her London Olympic dream.

A carefully devised training schedule will take her to Oregon, USA, in January and on to the Pyrenees in February. Afterwards, she will begin a series of competitive races in the build-up to medal glory.

She explains: "I am really, really excited about the Olympics. London and Britain will do a great job."
