New Mommy Basic Core Exercises

Even after I got cleared by my doctor to exercise again after having a baby, I felt that my core and pelvic areas were too loose, my groin area and lower back too tight, and actually the small tissues, joints, muscles around my whole core area needed some type of strength and stretch work before I started to run again.

My one 2016 wish

It has been one year since I launched this free lifestyle blog with the tag line “swim, bike, run & a little more”. Well, it ended up that the “little more” part grew more, much more.
