Any advice is appreciated. I am looking for some type of workout schedule. I was in the Army a few years back and worked out a LOT-- running (2 mile to half marathons), pushups, sit-ups, squat thrusts, etc, and all that stuff that is HARD on the body. (I injured two low back discs in the Army, as well as getting pretty frequent shin splints and possibly something like compartment syndrome (?) in that muscle just outside my shins. I have some kind of shoulder/scapula "thing" going on, that I think is a result of my back/compensation for the bad discs in my low/mid back. I worked out quite a bit before I got pregnant, this time mostly yoga, pilates, running/walking combos, etc. But I think I always did too much, too soon. I need a good SLOW START schedule. I haven't done anything for months besides wear and carry my LO.
What can/should I do now? I have some yoga and pilates DVDs, plus I just ordered Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred.
I want to run. I have a BOB. Is this a dumb idea? (Of course, ortho docs say yes, but I have SO many friends with injuries who run marathons.)
