Running Postnatal: Are you ready to get out there and run?

If you are a runner like me and you just had a baby, you are probably itching big time to get out there and run! Make sure you are ready and do it slow. I started with a run/walk system in week four, mostly walking with 1-3 minutes of a light jog here and there. Well even though I was excited to try running, it was too early. I got home, went to the bathroom and knew that was too much too soon. I waited another week or so and tried again. This time my body was ready. After a few more run/walks, I was finally able to do a continuous run for 15mins on week 7 postpartum. Today at 7.5 wks, I was thrilled to run 25 minutes. It felt like eating the best chocolate ice-cream ever!  I wanted to run even longer, but thought it best to walk and call it a day. I figured if no soreness in the next 24hrs then my body is ready for more. So far, so good.  🙂

Does it hurt? Well, yes I feel it down south a little bit but it will get better. This is part of the reason you have to go slow and build up over time.  Also, be sure to wear a very supportive sports bra. I have a big chest and of course an even bigger chest now while breastfeeding. After much research, I have found the best sports bras to be the Moving Comfort brand.
