anecdotal evidence from dozens of running mom friends:
- you will start regaining pre-pregnancy speed by 4 months PP, provided you ran through most/all of your pregnancy and restarted as soon as possible.
- post-partum running will suck, but if you train hard through it (tempo runs, track workouts, hills with a decent base mileage), you will get a speed burst that happens between 6-12 months PP.
