No problem. If you and your baby are in good health there is no problem with this kind of exercise program. Of course, make sure you are getting enough water and nutrition. I would advise that you stay away from any extreme diet program. Some runners carb load during training, but I would suggest that you focus your diet on keeping it well rounded with plenty of fruits and vegetables. The other element you need to mind is a proper well fitting sports bra. If you haven't run since you gave birth, you will probably find that your normal sports bra no longer fits. With the increased size and weight of your breasts proper support is even more important that usual. If you have any other concerns address them with your doctor or lactation consultant. Good luck on the race and let the rest of us know your time once the race is over.
