After my 6 week check up I hit the ground running…literally. Running has always been my favorite exercise because you can do it anywhere. I found that while I run I see things I normally wouldn’t take the time to look, it clears my mind, and boosts endorphins. One of the best things about running is that I can take my children along with me. It’s got to be the most conducive exercise for motherhood! I have now loaded up both my babies in jogging strollers and have logged many miles along the way. I’m partnering with Orbit baby in this new blog series to show you all the ways you can use their new Hybrid O2 jogging stroller to get healthy, stay in healthy, squeeze in exercise, and have fun. I hope you follow along, get out there and break a sweat with me.
Disclaimer: During this postpartum I have learned to be patient with myself; this is key in getting back into shape. My personality is a tenacious one (totally where my oldest gets his fire), and I tend to want things instantly. But after baby #2 my body is different and slower to change, none the less it is getting stronger and worthy of respect and time. So if you’re in a place in life where you’re not where you want to be or you’re working hard for a certain result, remember to be patient with yourself while you work at it. Now we can get to working out.
This weeks running workout consists of a 3 mile run with a couple other fun exercises using the O2 stroller 3 days a week. If you feel pain at any time please stop and walk. Its okay to work up to running and walking is a great way to do that.
- 3 mile run with O2 jogging stroller
- 3 sets of squats while holding onto the handlebar
- 3 sets of leg lifts, alternating each leg
- 3 sets of 20 lunges.
- Hamstring stretch while holding onto handlebar
