Hi ladies. DS will be 6 months on the 21st. I ran my 3rd half marathon this past sunday. A little background: I was in the military for 12 years before I got out to have DS, I've run 3 marathons, 2 half marathons, and countless other races 10 miles and below. I was unable to continue running after my 1st tri because of a broken tailbone and pretty bad symphesis pubic dysfunction. I walked a lot and did Brazil Butt Lift cardio for the remainder of my pregnancy. I started running (jogging) again 7 weeks post partum.
Two questions: is it normal to still have pains in my pelvis area during/after a run? Only way I can explain it is my uterus hurts. And when will I get faster? I am still running way slower than I used to. I finished Sunday's half 15 minutes slower than my slowest half (and I didn't even train for that one!). I've heard/read about so many women who've gotten faster after having babies. That is definitely not the case here and it's really kicking my confidence's butt. TIA.
