Warning Signs To Slow Down


    • Some muscle soreness the day after starting a new exercise may be expected, but joint and muscle aches or sharp pain are a sign to slow down.
    • Excessive physical activity can use up your muscle stores of energy leaving you feeling fatigued and drained of energy for daily life.
    • Post-partum vaginal flow or discharge (lochia) is normal with average duration of about a month. Whilst this varies widely between women, any increase in your rate of flow, change of colour to pink or red or starts after stopping maybe a sign you are exercising too hard. Check with your doctor. 
    • Low volume dark coloured urine may indicate you are not drinking enough during and after exercise.


    • You should listen to your body and not push yourself too hard.
    • If you are not feeling up to exercising one day, then rest or settle for a lighter activity. It may be necessary important to slow down – but don’t give up regular activity.
    • Make sure you drink water before, during and after exercise and eat regularly to prevent fatigue
