Thanks for a great post. I just had a baby 9 weeks ago. I used to run 2 miles, 3 times a week. I loved it. Now I'm finding it very hard to push thru the "work" of getting back in shape. My knees are bothering me, and I think it's because I am running almost every day, over-doing it a bit. My right elbow also hurts, not sure if that's related to running or related to weights I've been doing with my arms.
What's the healthiest way for me to get back to my 2 miles a day, or perhaps more like 3 or 4 so I can lose weight? I do better if I have a specific spot that I run/walk to daily. I've been walking 4 miles, with a bit of running in between, 5 days a week for 3 weeks. It's not sustainable...god help me, I push myself too hard. I just want to feel that "runners hi" again and I want to lose my pregnancy weight!
Any suggestions from similarly obsessed people would be helpful!
