After fracturing my elbow and spraining my wrist, I've now been told I can start running again, but not for another week! I have so missed it and every day I look up to the hills and feel they are calling me to get back up there.
I must admit to breaking into an extremely slow jog yesterday when I was out walking the dog, I just couldn't help it, and it only lasted a minute. I just wanted to make sure I could still do it!
So where should I start again? I will have been off running for nearly 4 weeks. I was thinking about week 5 of c25k, then there will be no pressure (I hope). I'm sure I should be able to manage it, and anyway, Laura will be there to hold my hand. I can't believe that on the day I fell I had done 8.5 km and was well into B210K. I was at the very top of the hills and on a complete high (literally and mentally), and then went and tripped to fall flat on my face.
Sometimes I've found myself wondering if it's worth the risk of starting again, and I've had several comments from people saying things like "well, what do you expect when you go running?" However, even though I know I will be nervous to start with, I'm sure going to do it!
I've been enjoying reading about everyone's progress, it's so motivating, comforting and sometimes very funny. And at least the sun's out and I have a good excuse for lazing about in the garden! (Or on the couch!!)
