When is a good time to start working out?

I'm dying to start training for this 5k that I want to run next year, and I'm just wondering when is a good time to start working out? I had my son 3 weeks ago.​

    Yeah the general time frame is 6 weeks but we often start feeling well before then. However, if we start to push it we can start to bleed a new and lengthen the healing process. Better to wait for the doctor's go-ahead than risk a set back. You can always call your doctor's office and tell them how you are feeling and what you want to do, they may move up your 6 week appointment, who knows. It never hurts to ask. Glad to hear you are doing well! I've been thinking about you!
