Tips for jogging with a stroller?

Hello

Found a great deal for a used jogging stroller (double) and could not resist

We are no big joggers but like to keep in shape and I thought that when we get our second child, this will be a must or we will never go due to lack of time...

Now... any tips on how to get started etc?

Anything we must know?

Thanks for advice!

K

Re: Tips for jogging with a stroller?

I jog with a TFK 16 inch wheel single stroller, or the Chariot bike trailer with a jogging attachment front wheel, when there are 2 kids sitting in it.

Take water bottles for the kids (1 each), and snacks for them, if they can hold them themselves already.

Dont expect to do too much. Be happy with being allowed a "bit of freedom" for half an hour, rather than going for a whole hour and be heading back with 2 screaming, grumpy kids. No fun.

Make sure the kids are securely strapped in (5 point harness) - just in case the pram tips over on uneven ground...actually, I'd be inclined to recommend that you put the kids in crash helmets...

I'm not really kidding...a colleague of mine worked with a permanently brain-injured child who was tipped out of their pram in infancy...

Also don't go out with a new baby too early, they need to have good neck strength even on flat ground.
