i have been a runner for the last 8 years, completely 5ks, 10ks, half marathons and a full marathon. I have ran through ACL reconstruction, lost 6 stone in weight and ran through the ups and downs that life throws you.
so here goes.......7 weeks ago I lost my baby boy when I was 5 1/2 months pregnant. I ran up until 16 weeks comfortably, we went for a routine scan and couldn't find his heartbeat, apparently you're not always safe after the 12 week scan!
So I'm left dealing with this grief, a stone of pregnancy weight and days of exhaustion. Running has always helped clear my head and sort out any worries I've had and I've missed it. I've been able to make it out for 2/3 short runs over the past few weeks but then start to feel tired and run down. I just can't seem to make the first positive step to get myself into a little routine to start me off again. My confidence has gone and I don't feel comfortable in my running clothes with the extra weight.
If there is a fellow runner who has been through anything like this or just anyone who could help with some advice, it would be very well appreciated.
