Jogging?

I did a bit of walk-jogging on Sunday like I said in my last post - it went...weirdly. I don't know, it didn't feel right and probably only other mothers can understand. But I felt like everything was just going to fall out?? I ended up shuffling and thinking that this was not a good idea and I need to give myself more time to heal up. I know others have run shortly after birth and I just don't understand how that is possible (well, perhaps they didn't have any repair work afterwards?) Anyways, any advice from running momma's would be appreciated :)

So, cute baby picture - here is Logan at 3 weeks old after a walk around the lake.

Listen to your body - if it feels weird I'd wait. Yes, those that start back at it right away either ignore signals their body is sending and end up injured or they had those deliveries where the baby practically fell out and there is no "repair" work.

He is a cutie!

I didn't have any repair work, but I can tell you that it is going to feel a little weird in the beginning just because the muscles are a little weak. If it's too painful then I'd wait longer and just do some mild stomach/pelvic floor exercises for a while. Try the elliptical or even your trainer though if you can sit comfortably on it yet.

I resumed running at the 3 week mark and had the same exact feeling. Literally was checking after to see if anything was hanging out :) Anyway, I stopped after a week or so and just started biking instead. It was a couple weeks of that and by 6 weeks was able to get back to the running. Truly though it took a while to not have "leak" issues but now I can say that I feel just as I did pre-baby - down there :). Good luck!
