So I have been to postnatal Pilates in an effort to begin my return to running. It was brilliant (the fact that the lovely instructor walked my grizzly baby up and down whilst I lay on the floor and did uninterrupted guided relaxation was worth the course fee alone!), but made me aware of just how unstable my hips still are, and how knackered my alignment is, and how my never-especially-brilliant glutes need building from nothing again.
So the plan is to do just Pilates and walking (and millions of Kegels, because I do not wish to wee on my running leggings if at all possible) until the little one is 12 weeks, and then see how I feel and tentatively get back to it starting with c25k week one. If it works, that'll have me back to 5k by the end of January, then leaves me 15 weeks to train for the beautiful Welsh half marathon I did 2 years ago (see my jubilant post here: healthunlocked.com/couchto5...... ).
What do we reckon? Can it be done? Will I annoy the be-Jesus out of you lot posting about week 1 runs on this board while you bash out 10ks and beyond (if so, please say and I'll head over to c25k again)? Is anyone up for jollying me along/giving me a kick up the arse when needed/listening to me waffle?
I hope your Mondays have been kind to you. X
