Some of you may recall I broke my tibia & fibula ( 21st Sep 2015) & was told 9-12 months to be walking properly.
Well today will be week 2 day 1 yay. I finally got the nod ( small crack left but healing nicely) so the very next day ( night before was like xmas eve for me) I woke up, pulled on my familiar yet strange running gear, strapped my leg, laced up trainers, felt the cold sloshing water in my water bottle as I pulled the door closed behind me. Walked into the garage, dusted off the treadmill & switched it on, heard the comforting whirr as it booted up, plugged in iPad and heard the amazing voice of My old coach & running companion Laura .......I didn't know if I could walk fast let alone jog but 31 minutes later I had completed 2..4k. The euphoria was overwhelming.
I am hoping by redoing c25k I will be able to rubuild my fitness so I'm back at 45 minutes by August but whatever happens - I'm relishing the running of feeling again. I was by no means fast - 45 mins = 4K for me but I loved that feeling of freedom.
So to all the newbies - every time you complete a session, it's a step closer to freedom and just remember your journey isn't going to to be easy some days but it will be so worth it....
