Thanks Hegs and Clare....so there is a life of running after childbirth!! I thought I had SPD or something and would never run well again. The personal trainer sounds like a great idea Hegs, I hadn't thought of that. I plan to see a doctor soon for a check up I should really see a physio also before putting on my running shoes again. Roll on the summer when I will hopefully be galloping along the roads!
Hi, I'm new to this board. Congrats to all you pregnant runners it is such a wonderful time. I had my first baby 5 months ago. During my pregnancy I stayed fit by swimming and using the elliptical trainer at the gym. I avoided running as I was afraid of damaging joints due to the hormone relaxin. I have tried running since I gave birth but I keep having abdominal pain and pubic pain. I have jogged a 5km only to be in agony afterwards. My doctor thinks my round ligaments are not back to normal yet. Has anyone experienced a similar situation? And when do most women return to running after childbirth??
