Good News for Moms With Strollers

Here is some good news for mom's who like to run with strollers...

A study from Texas A&M found that running with a stroller provided a much more intense workout than running without a stroller and there was no difference in stride length and overall running gait. In other words: Your form is not compromised by pushing the stroller. This is good news for any of us moms that were thinking it was a bad idea to run with the stroller. So get out there and get a really good workout, without having to get a sitter. Just make sure you've got a stroller that can handle it such as a Baby Jogger.

Want to get even more out of your stroller jogs? Hook up a Strollometer to your stroller to see your distance, speed and time.

In case you need a lightweight single jogging stroller with generous legs room, extended canopy and slim shape in folded position, you might want to check this one out: http://jogging-stroller-reviews.net/baby-jogger-fit-reviews/. Just fyi, for a baby's safety, a jogging stroller is best recommended for the LO who already has a stable neck control.

When my son was about 7 months I started taking him on jogs with me. It became a great way for us to explore our new neighborhood together. It brought a whole new level to your workout. Pushing a stroller is not easy! But it is also very rewarding - usually because it is a sure fire way for Daniel to fall asleep! I used to run with head phones, but since running with Daniel, I want to be able to hear him, so I stole my husbands’ cycling speaker (it's this wireless sports speaker, called CyFi, that connects to an iPod so you can listen to music while riding your bike w/o using earphones- which is illegal in most states) and hooked it on to the stroller. This was a moment of brilliance! Music, running and a sleeping son, doesn’t get much better than that. The CYFI is so portable that I now take it everywhere with us, from stroller to crib to car seat. It's great!

I admire women who do this. Running without a stroller is workout enough for me.
