[PODCAST] Returning to Running Post-Pregnancy

by May 19, 2020

Returning to Running Post-Pregnancy

How do you return to running postpartum?

Do you just wait until your 6-week clearance and then go out and test a 5k route? Sign up for a bootcamp class that involves sprinting?

What if you don’t care about being able to go for runs, or do any sprinting, but you do want to be able to run after your kid at the park, or play soccer in the backyard?

It’s the episode you’ve been waiting for and we are answering the most common questions we get about returning to running post-pregnancy and giving you some guidance about how to start!

– How long postpartum until you are ‘allowed’ to start running?

– Is it different with vaginal birth vs. Cesarean birth recovery?

– How do you know when your post-pregnancy body and pelvic floor are ready to return to running?

– Why we recommend doing some strength and mobility foundational work BEFORE you start back to running and what types of movements to include.

– How to actually start running again – this part surprises most people!

– What to do during running if you feel/experience symptoms or sensations that feel ‘off’, including those in your pelvic floor

– Why it’s the one-time you’ll hear me recommend doing a warmup before a workout, and should you do some stretching after running?

– How to progress your running over time when things are feeling strong and solid

Get the guidance you need to return to postpartum running in a way that feels good good in your body and supports your recovery.
