doctors are always going to err on the side of being conservative when giving advice for PP exercise.
You can do what you feel like, as long as it doesn't cause bleeding to restart or hurt your incision.
I know someone who restarted running less than a week after a c-section..but she's also run a 50K while pregnant so obviously not everyone can do this..but I am telling you this to say that you do NOT need to sit on your butt for 6-8 weeks if you feel up to it either.
