After completing my 20 min run on Saturday and feeling brilliant on Sunday I decided to do an hour on the Wii on my rest day. Seems this exercise lark has become addictive! I didn't really warm up properly and when my thighs started cramping I should have stopped but I was determined to push myself and did another 45 mins! What was I thinking? Seems I got a touch of the cockiness danzargo had already warned me about.
I woke up yesterday in total agony, my back, arms and legs totally seized. I had a hot bath last night which eased it a bit but couldn't do my run as I could barely walk. I'm still hobbling around today and not sure if I'll be able to start week 6 tonight either.
(Squeamish reader warning). On top of that I went to the doctors last night to get an abnormal mole on my thigh checked out and I've been told I'm going to have to have it cut out. This will mean stitches in my leg. I've never had to have anything like this done before and being a bit of a wimp I'm terrified! Just worked it out and this is going to coincide with week 9 of the plan. The doctor has advised I won't be able to do anything strenuous that might affect the stitches and the healing so in the week I'm supposed to be finishing the plan and getting the lovely graduate badge, I'm going to have to stop running.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this where they've had to stop the plan and restart? I'm worried I might have to go back a few weeks and it will be like starting from scratch when I've come so far.
