Today is my birthday yep that's a special day, but today was a VERY special day for me.
Today I ran/walked 3.86Km in 35 minutes. Its the first time I've been able to run in nearly 7 months. Having been crippled by PF I've hopefully at long last found a cure and succeeded in conquering the pain that has plagued me all this time. Now the hard work begins to get back up to speed and distance, but its no race, I've all the time in the world
Thanks to all my friends on here and Facebook Group who have helped and supported me through this very frustrating time on the injury bench. Thank you for putting up with my posts on rowing which has helped keep me reasonably fit, your comments have encouraged me to keep going. I will not stop rowing even now I'm hopefully back out running as I firmly believe its a very good cross training exercise along with cycling and swimming , a mixture I'm convinced is the best way to prevent injury.
I haven't the heart to do C25K all over again, it would be the 4th time so I have decided to just do some simple intervals of running/walking, today was 3 minutes run, 1 minute walk for 35 minutes and it seemed to work OK, my fitness is still there its just a question of building up the leg strength and stamina again.
Happy running everyone, good luck to those just starting out. Its just over 4 years now since I first set out to do week 1 run 1, I've had a lot of fun, some pain and illness throughout the 4 years but its in my blood this running malarkey I hope you enjoy it as much as I have and still do.
