When I first had my son, I wanted to get back to running as soon as possible. It took a little longer than I expected. My knees hurt. My back hurt. And let's not get into how much pain a nursing mom can feel when trying to be active. At the time, I didn't really have anyone else to talk to about this. My other new-mom friends weren't runners and they couldn't relate. Eventually I got my running mojo back but it was a long, lonely road.
After my twins were born, it was even worse. Honestly, I still feel like my body is trying to get back to pre-pregnancy state, even 2.5 years later. Again, it's taking much longer than I thought and it can be a lonely process at times.
That's why I designed my new Moms That Move program. It's a beginning 5K program for parents who have either never run before, have taken a long running hiatus or have just given birth and are ready to get back in the game. You can learn to run the right way, either with or without your kids in the stroller, have all your questions answered and get back into shape in a safe, supportive environment. But this
program is more than just a way to get in shape. You'll meet new
people, learn how to go about running the right way and challenge
yourself in ways you never thought possible!
these motivating, non-competitive and FUN programs, all runners get a
detailed training plan, weekly coached runs, unlimited contact with the
coach through email, weekly email newsletters, informational seminars
about running form, nutrition, preventing injury and more, as well as
the encouragement, support, motivation, camaraderie and guidance from an
experienced coach and being a part of a group setting. This is a great
introduction into running for beginning runners, as well as a safe and
helpful way to return to running from childbirth or injury.
