Happy Thanksgiving! We are so thankful for our precious son! He is a blessing to our family!
He is growing like a champ already! Mommy is recovering well and cannot wait to get clearance to start running again. (Doctor said only yoga and walking for now and that I could start jogging again at 4 weeks post partem). I did try a quick 1 mile jog on Sunday, but It was too soon and didn't quite feel right. The Doctor recommends a longer healing time for the pelvic floor so as to avoid any long term or permanent damage of the bladder, etc. He scared me into waiting a while longer! I am looking forward to stepping up the fitness program and starting my marathon training asap!

Hi Cindy, so glad to hear you're all getting settled. I'm glad you listened to your body when you attempted a run. Childbirth does some strange things to us, but you WILL be back to your old self in no time...and probably a helluva lot stronger and faster! For now, just ease into it like your doc says. Enjoy!
