Now, where was I? Oh yes, I got to the start of week 9 and then had to stop to have my gall bladder removed 6 weeks ago.
Today I finally got myself out there to restart the programme from the beginning. I've decided to do this from the beginning to help avoid injury and it just feels better to build myself up again slowly.
I didn't feel like going but it feels great to have kick started myself again. It was definitely was easier 2nd time around! And yet the idea I will be running for 20 mins in 6 weeks time feels just as unlikely as before, lol. But I know better, I know to just trust the programme and do what Laura says.
Yesterday I booked myself a one hour session with a Personal Trainer to learn proper stretches for post running and some upper body exercise. I got away with not stretching previously but I knew it was a very risky strategy that I needed to put right. Now I now what I am doing, I'm going to be merrily stretching properly after every run, I promise.
