Hey ladies; feels like I haven't been on TB forever, but I wanted to ask you all a question (I apologise that it's a bit long):
At my insistence, DH and I are training for 2 runs: a 9-mile cross-country fun run (which we've both done before when I was first pregnant with DS) and then a half marathon in March. DS is now 10 months old and I've been exercising - both running and at the gym - pretty regularly since he was about 2 months old.
The problem is, while I have the CV stamina to do a 5-mile run, my pelvis just doesn't want to cooperate. I don't want to push myself into an injury, but ever since my 3rd trimester I've had SPD of some sort. I can run about 3 miles again (though the StairMaster is still a no-go), but even after a 4-miler last night my hips and thighs were killing when I went to bed!
I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience when trying to get back to running. What did you do? Did you just push through it slowly or see a PT or find a brace or support of some kind?
TIA for any advice you gals can give!
