Back on track

As some of you may know, we had a bit of a scare when my husband and running buddy developed chest pains on runs in week 5. Well I'm pleased to report that the ECG didn't find anything bad and he's been doing WK5R1 runs with me for the last couple of weeks (until we can have a CAT scan) and there's been no more pains.

But that put me in a bit of a quandary as I want to be supportive but also wanted to carry on with the programme. With his encouragement I'm carrying on and completed WK6 run 2 tonight and loved it!

So for now I'll be doing the run with hubby, the next run in the programme and Parkrun on a weekly basis. Yes it will take me longer to graduate, but it's a journey not a destination - right? xx

  • Delighted to hear that, Mr & Mrs Biscuit.

    It doesn't matter how long it takes, you're doing it :)

  • Glad to hear both of you are back in the game X

    It's good that you enjoy is as well so it doesn't really matter if it takes you longer to graduate

  • You are so right. Great news that your husband is okay - hope you enjoy your runs together!

  • Hey biscuit, missed seeing you on here, glad to see you are back. Sounds like a great regime you have come up with between you... You will both finish this any which way, I am sure, onwards and upwards! πŸ˜€

  • Glad to hear it's not serious, must have been a real worry. Best of luck to you both, you'll both get there and it will be all the sweeter πŸ‘πŸ»

  • Well done both! I was wondering how it all turned out :)

    It is great that he is feeling better and that you are both able to run :) Lots of luck with it as you go... slow and steady :)

    It is a journey, and a great one, however long it takes :)

  • Thanks for your lovely replies everyone, what a great way to start my day! This is a fab forum πŸ’•πŸ˜Š

  • Good news on the ECG. Hoping all goes well for the CAT scan also.

  • Absolutely, take the journey at your own pace, the end result will be the same. The important thing is to take it at the right pace and I think it's lovely that you can do it together. Good luck for the CAT scan, keep in touch!

  • That's a great plan and gives you an all round work out. A nice steady run with hubby will give you the opportunity to gradually strengthen your muscles and stop you doing too much too soon, you'll still enjoy the progress and structure the program gives, and have the weekly Parkrun challenge. Best of luck to you both, I hope all goes well.

  • Thanks for the update Biscuit. Great news that your husband is back running now.

  • That's really great to hear Biscuit - so glad Hubby and you have worked out a great plan to keep going . Well done to both of you - wishing all will go well with the CT scanπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
