I went for my first postpartum run yesterday!! It was also my first run in almost a year. Heading out, I was really nervous and had no idea how far I could go or what I would be able to do. I ran 1.5 miles at a 9:10 pace and felt really good – I was very happy with that. My heart was certainly racing and my legs/hips are a tad sore today, but the second I started jogging I remembered why I fell in love with running in the first place – it felt so good to be at it again.
The one “problem” I had, however, was that my chest felt very uncomfortable and unsupported. I absolutely need a better, more supportive bra before I do this again. I asked for suggestions on Instagram yesterday and heard from a couple of people that Moving Comfort is great, but if anyone else knows of another great brand for a sports bra that’ll hold down nursing boobs, please let me know!

I went through my name (plus maiden name), but by the time I got to “USS” I was uninterested in doing 75 more sit-ups in a row, so I just did a few other letters I hadn’t done yet. It was fun!
