Training plan for returning to running after pregancy

This training plan is created specifically to help you get back to running (or start running) after your pregnancy.

Why run after being pregnant?

Any runner who's been pregnant will know how hard it can be stop running (and paradoxically, keep running). The body finds it harder, yet the mind can become keener to continue. Of course, for the very vast majority of women, there comes a time during their pregnancy when they have to stop. This might be very early on, or it might be the week before childbirth.

Why choose our training schedules to run after your pregnancy?

Running is natural, but runners still get injured, sick, de-motivated, fat (yes, it's true), they give up, they start smoking again, waste money on needless equipment, train ineffectively. In short, they make lots of mistakes — naturally.

Whilst it might seem very natural to get back to running or start running after pregancy, the body and mind have undergone huge change and there are many considerations to address and many more challenges to over come than is normally the case on returning to running or even beginning.
We cannot guarantee that you'll never experience any of the above, but we will give you the knowledge, encouragement and guidance to help you get the very most from return to running. Our expertise extends beyond running training (you can read more about who we are here) and so our plans extend beyond just a simple running training schedule.

Our bespoke training schedules span a limited duration (chosen by you), so there are no recurrent monthly costs. Some will only want or need an 8-week plan to get them back into running safely again, others prefer a little more hand-holding or might be targeting a particular race. But, it's up to you, choose the length of program that you want — you can always come back for more!
