Wk1r1 & I won't lie found it tougher than anticipated

Who would have thought it , 9 wks abstinence I Know but I had a shock , I have lost quite a bit of my fitness . I had about 3k fast walk before it with dog then left him at home ( coz he's a pest weeing all the time & sniffing ) lol . Did the old stretches & I was off . Lovely day for it I may add . Anyway I thought I don't really need to start at the beginning again , but oh yes Ido ! Anyway I completed it , not as easy as I thought it would be , the ankle not so much as a twinge out of it I'm glad to say , but the buttocks ached a bit , but it was exactly like that before when I started c25k . Anyway folks I'm back & this time I'm not rushing it , I'm having 2 rest days for yoga & cycling & it's onwards & upwards .

  • The muscle memory will return I am sure, but you know as well as any of us, that it is best to not push too hard. Time will get you back there, Rockette. Good luck. Keep running,keep smiling.

  • Well done - take it easy. You have done it before and that fitness will quickly come back :-)

  • Yes the first few runs back in after injury time out are hard, go easy on yourself Rockette and it will come back gradually. Glad the ankle didn't protest, that's a good sign.

  • Excellent that you are back after a break- take it easy x

  • Great that the ankle held out matey. Big sighs of relief all round. Softly, softly catchy monkey! You'll get there. I'm just so glad you're still going!

  • Good to hear you made it back safely. I bet you were a bit tentative at first though.

    I bet you can't wait to do it again.

  • Glad you back Remember slow and steady - you know Laura is right. I think it takes more guts to get back out there after injury so well done you Take care

  • I bet in two or three weeks you will be in a very different place but however long it takes to get back up to speed.... you're back :)

  • Well done you! Knowing you've already done this will be such a help. Have fun!

  • Well done; good to see you back.

  • Welcome back. Your body will adjust much quicker. You are doing the sensible thing, and that will pay off :) but you are back and running again - which is amazing!

  • Thanks everyone for all your support

  • Well done for coming back and good luck. ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ
