Hello is there any parents out there who run with a double pram? If so what pram do you run with? I'm pregnant at the mo but am shopping for a pram that I can hopefully run with! Thank you!
Any recommendations please? I'm struggling to find one!
we had a 'city stroller' easy to push and fold up, to be honest i just did smaller runs like parkrun or anything up to five miles. Don't forget to get a wrist strap to connect to pram that's my biggest tip, good luck.
crazy idea anyway, cannot be comfortable for a child
crazy idea?? Its very common. I've done my research and life does not stop when you have children. So I wouldn't rub the pregnant lady up the wrong way!!! America has many running prams. Some Olympians use them too!!
Leave the kids at home when you run. "Common" != "Good". Perhaps Mumsnet is the place for you.
home alone?? Good idea!!
You didn't clarify that there'd be no one at home to look after them, so based on the information you gave the advice is sound.
it sounded straight to the point and simple to me! Any way must dash Jeremy Kyle is on! You can be 'clever' and helpful with someone else! I don't know why you even hijacked my post!
I think you have to seriously look at how "enjoyable" it would be for a toddler to be hurtling along bumped form pillar to post, answer - not very. I don't doubt the enjoyment of the mother but it should be about the kids
Wind your neck in dear.
Kids have this mechanism called 'crying' that they use to great affect when unhappy.
What harm do you suppose its doing a child?
seems selfish to me
Lucy - I took both my children out running in a buggy buggy - admittedly I didn't have two to take at the same time like you will have, but it is certainly done by many. It is a luxury to be able to leave them behind and run on your own, but sometimes, as we know, it just doesn't work like that!
With my first child I had a mountain buggy - fab off-roader but quite cumbersome. Second time around I managed to get a baby-jogger off Ebay and it was a revelation! So lightweight and easy to manoeuvre.
Other running mums I know have used *Chariot* (which is also part bike trailer) and *out and about*. Important factor isheight of handle, running with a buggy DOES affect your gait so you need to have good posture, and yes, a wrist strap is essential.
If you do have a run buggy, you'll probably want something more compact for travel/shopping etc - most run buggies are quite long and don't always fit into a standard boot.
My first child used to sleep whenever we went out (bonus points), my daughter wasn't quite so accommodating (second child!) but still enjoyed shorter runs.
am confused as to why wanting to go for a run is selfish?
I wouldnt worry about it - just another person with more opinions than sense.
At last some sensible answers!! Thank you so much! Much appreciated!! My husband works abroad and I don't have the luxury of child care/help! I have conclusions about the sex of the stupid replies! Living in their dream worlds!!
