Weekly chat 22 -28 May

Hi everybody,

Please feel free to share your runs here and chat about how it's all going,

Sometimes we don't feel like putting a whole post up but just want to share something small, so this is a great place for doing that during the week.

If youre a lurker it is a great place to say a little hi without the pressure of a full post.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy week !

Wow, I didn't want to put this on the C25k but boy do you lose your running muscles fast, even when walking. I have kept my weight steady just 2lb increase but I suspect the weight gain is higher when you take the loss of muscle into consideration. I have wobbly legs😫😫😫😫😳😳😳. Not had those for a couple of years. Hopefully 2 weeks until I start again.

It comes back as fast as it goes I think. I had a tough winter with various bugs and asthma issues, I realise a different scale of issues to you but a few months back into things and I'm running better than ever. So just stick with the plan RFC. You know that keeping to walking and making sure you ease back in carefully is the right thing, it will definitely all come back :)

Yeah, just back from my first run of this week. Stepping Stones successfully completed.😊

I haven’t run much for quite a while because of my frozen shoulder issue, but have been doing lots of walking

Surprisingly my breathing and legs were fine today...stamina intact so to speak, but will try again Wednesday to see if I can do better. It was a hot, sunny run though but I seized the moment...πŸ˜„xx


A frozen shoulder is awful, Jan - I dislocated mine a couple of years ago and now the other one is either freezing or I have an impingement, they're not quite sure which. It's miserable :( Hope yours is better now.


Thanks Annie, mine is over the painful bit, but still too stiff to drive,put on my sports bra unaided etc.

Sorry to hear you have a problem too..hope you're not in a lot of pain with that. It can get you down, especially if not able to sleep.😐xxx

Well, thats run 2 completed. Stepping Stones again. I'm annoyed because even though I ran with a cramp in my right calf for about 3/4 of the run I covered more ground than Monday (just a tad) so thought I must have improved..but my Strava stopped recording so didnt get the stats.😐

But thats 2 30 minute runs now so pleased as a prancing pony..πŸ˜„


Yeehah...that's my third run of the week done and dusted 😊

3 x 30 mins this week. All Stepping Stones. Next week 3 xW9 R3 and a hill!

Pleased I got out there again after a while on the ic.
