You’re cleared for exercise, now time to start running?
….weeeellllll, maybe not quite.
Trust me, I get it. After having each of my boys, I was so anxious to get back to running. Running has always been a part of me. It is my stress relief, my me time, the source of the majority of my friendships, and my main mode of physical fitness.
But running is NOT easy!
Running is a single leg, dynamic, plyometric exercise… it’s not easy. You need to be STRONG and STABLE!
My Postpartum “Ready To Run” Checklist will walk you through exactly how to know if/when your postpartum body is strong and stable enough to run again.
