I have a friend who is in the same boat as you kate!
i told her the same thing, just try getting into it slowly. try the run/walk strategy if its too hard to hold a pace.
dare i say it but is your diet o.k? ive heard somewhere that pregnant or just given, are more likely to develop iron deficiency? just a thought though!
Try a parkrun, it is motivating. 5K on a Saturday morning at 9am. It's free and for all abilities. You and your husband can run alternative weeks and if your not running voluteer to be a marshall. / look after the baby. There are lots of family groups at parkruns.
details here http://www.parkrun.org.uk/
Hope you manage to get out of your rut but as others have said maybe just going gently and building up. Even if youre walking its still excercise
yay! Working for me too...much less daunting and helps build confidence as well as stamina! Well done!
I know this sounds a bit of a strange way to boost your motivation, but I find good exercise clothing really helps!
Bit of a back story I lost 6.5 over 2 years and to motivate me at first of course was the weight loss but also wearing good sportswear.I have recently discovered Fittamamma clothes. They are inteneded as maternity wear, but the supportive tops are brilliant for holding everything in, i have a saggy tummy, and making you feel much better and more confident about yourself!
It may seem shallow to some people, but belive me i am no stranger to sweating it out in the gym I just like good supportive gym wear!
I highly recommend you try it, it may encourage you more?
This is their website if you feel like looking http://www.fittamamma.com
Good thinking; Im going to give compression shorts a go as my tummy bounces and bruises on occasion.
I love the new kit idea as it is so true. I think some of my best runs have been when I have been trying out some new GPS watch or a new pair fo trainers. Its almost a pitty every new run doesnt start with a trip to the running shop...although probably better for my credit card!
