You must take precautions to protect each other from getting hurt.running with stroller to get fitter

Jogging with a baby stroller

It’s well worth it to start jogging and sticking with it. It can increase your fitness level in no time. After a short period of time you will start to feel the benefits of your hard work. You might lose a few pounds but the best of all is that you have made a decision and stuck with it. The hardest part is showing up but once you start you will enjoy running more and more.

I remember the first time I started jogging with my son in his stroller. What a nightmare. When I finally returned home I was so stressed out I thought I was going to have a heart attack. The stroller was all over the place, my son was bouncing in and out of the stroller and the whole ordeal was a stressful nightmare. Over time as I got better at jogging and dealing with a stroller things got better. We invested in a jogging stroller with inflatable tires, which made the whole journey a million times easier, and a hell of a lot more fun.

After a while we started taking the dog with us. Owning a black lab he needs exercise so I decided to try multitasking walking the dog and jogging at the same time. Once everybody knew the routine it worked out great.
