For running, that is.
But the question of when to resume running post-partum is a bit tricky to answer.
I've been doing a lot of reading in the past week about when it's safe to resume running after delivery, and the answers vary according to different women. Some women, apparently, returned to running within a week of delivery. Others waited a month, or the doctor-recommended 6 weeks.
For me, two weeks post-partum, I feel fine. Seriously, I feel totally recovered; however, that doesn't necessarily mean I am. So, on the one hand, I know I shouldn't rush recovery just because I'm itchin' to run (it's been 10 weeks since my last run back in June and I'd really like to get back to it); but on the other hand, I really don't think I need to wait another full 4 weeks. This predicament is just like any injured runner predicament: Go back too soon and you re-injure yourself and perhaps make recovery longer, don't go back soon enough and you lose your mind.
What are your thoughts? Do I wait until I've had my 6 week check up (September 22nd), get the "all clear" from the medical professionals, then resume running? Or, do I wait another week or two and then give it a personal test?
