A workout perfect for getting back into the running game. Whether you are postpartum, starting up from an injury, or just took a break, enjoy this back to running workout.
Hey guys. I’m back with a workout today! Over the past couple weeks, I’ve been working out when I feel like it, and that’s it. If the urge was there, or I felt like I needed it for my sanity, I worked out. If I didn’t want to do it, I didn’t push myself. I’ve run a few times, done a few upper body workouts and gone on some walks.
This past Friday, though, I found myself with some extra time. Aaron was in charge of the monitor for Annabelle (she fusses throughout her naps, especially if she loses her binky, so he was in charge) and I wanted to run. I headed to the treadmill, with no clear goal in mind, but thought I should add in some lower body exercises, too, since I’ve been neglecting them. It ended up to be a great workout. I felt awesome doing it, and the break in the miles gave me a chance to recover and then try again.
Please consult with your doctor before beginning any exercise program, especially if you are pregnant or recently had a baby. What I do may not be the safest for you, or what your doctor recommends.
As always, choose a speed you can do! If you are walking, excellent, walk the miles! If you want to run some, walk some, that’s fine! You can choose.
Yesterday, I started the 21 Day Fix. I’m not doing the meal plan, though. I want to make sure working out doesn’t negatively effect my milk supply, and don’t want to mix a new meal plan in. Anywayyy, I’m planning on doing it for the whole 21 days, and adding running in a few days a week, too! Yesterday was a cardio day, and felt great! Hard, but felt good!
