Hi. I started this wonderful programme in a bid to get fit in my mid-50s after a life of no exercise, fags till 3 years ago and lots of lovely red wine. Health anxiety suddenly floored my 18 months ago and I have fought it tooth and nail - with running being my final right hook [I hoped]. Weeks 1-7 flew by and whilst I can't say I LOVED them, I did feel a sense of pride and felt better physically. But today panic attack symptoms came back out of the blue at the end of a 28-minuter. I was convinced I was having a heart attack and have convinced myself I now have weakness down my left side.
Really gutted as I thought I was putting all this daft anxiety stuff behind me. Anybody else struggle against this type of thing? Any advice for next run [as I will now be anxious that this will happen again...]
