Let’s Get This Party Started
Last week at my 6 week postpartum visit, my midwife declared me healed and ready to return to the world of physical things. I’ve done two short (but shockingly sweaty) yoga practices since that have reminded me: a) how effective yoga is at making you mindful of all of your aching parts; and b) how spectacular it feels to stretch things out, even just for 20 or so minutes.
And today, I officially got my EBR 2011 training party started with Day 1 of Couch to 5K. (Actually, I accidentally misread the chart and started with Day 7…oops.) It was shockingly doable – I mean, yes, in general my body is pretty tight all over, but it wasn’t a problem to run the 3-minute intervals. I was happily surprised!
In fact, the only uncomfortable part was the boob situation. I nursed Violet before I left, and I was thrilled that I fit into one of my typical sports bra tops, but I felt pretty bouncy out there. I’d be curious to hear from other nursing moms (or well endowed women in general) what running tops you recommend. At this point, I’m thinking I’ll wear two sports bras out on my next session. Thoughts?
