  • running with IC

    I can't run right now but eventually I'd like to...has anyone with IC had success in getting back into a rigorous workout routine? I'm determined to beat this! If a man with no legs (I think?!) can climb Mt. Everest, I can run a marathon with this bladder, right?

    Some people with ic can get back to a normal routine while others can't because it throws them into a flare. It is a different scenario for each icer.I wish you alot of luck hugs.

      As long as my IC isn't flaring I can maintain a fairly vigorous workout routine. I believe I could take up running despite IC as well if only my knees would allow for that. As Roseanne Roseannadanna says, "It's always something!"
      "The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have."

        I ran about 25 miles a week before I developed IC. Unfortunately I have not been able to resume running. Of all of the things I had to give up, I miss running the most!

          I can't either. It will cause a flare for me. I will feel a sensation of having to go to the bathroom all of the time. It is not worth it for me to run. I can do some elliptical and arm work outs but that is pretty much it for now anyway!

            thank you all for your messages! Right now any exercise (including the recumbent bike) produces a flare...but my bladder is uber damaged...the pics from my cysto showed red cracks everywhere so I think I'll not work out for a few months and just eat well and maybe some plan is run a marathon in 2012...give myself a year to heal! thoughts?

              I hope you can do it! I went cross country skiing today, no good. What marathon are you going to run? My mom and brothers have run many marathons. I stuck mostly to 5-10 K.
