Welcome to a pre-run preparation routine.

Lots of postnatal mums find going out for a run a quick, easy and free way to get fitter.

Before you run you need to warm up. But this doesn’t just mean raising your body temperature. This should also mean getting your brain and muscles fully working together before you put the body under the high impact strain of running.

This sequence is designed to be done in your front hall - just before you go out the door. We are going to loosen your back and limbs, find your abdominal wall, your pelvic floor and your gluts BEFORE you take your first steps. Then you can run out that door knowing that you are fully supported in every direction - no leaks, no injuries!
