Welcome to Week 9 of the Postpartum Return to Running Program!
We progress to plyometrics 2 for the next two weeks. If you don't feel ready to progress, stay with plyometrics 1! Our overall running time has increased to 13 minutes, with eight 1-minute intervals and ten 30-second intervals.
As always, monitor symptoms, alignment, and breathing. Feel free to split up the strength and running sessions into two separate sessions.
During the strength session, weights have slowly increased to 60% of our 1RM, and we are now dropping in the number of total reps to allow for an increase in weight. Continue to focus on alignment during lifts, and feel free to video yourself to send to us for feedback!
Please give us any feedback on week 9!
