I'm so proud of myself, having just completed week 8 run 3 and have managed to cover 6.4km with the run and the two walks. It is also only my second run outside (have done all my runs on a treadmill at the gym). However my dilemma is that on Wednesday I have to go into hospital to have some reconstruction work done following a mastectomy I had in the spring. This will mean that I will have to have some time off running/exercise (possibly 6 to 8 weeks). Will this put me right back where I was when I started the Couch to 5k back in July?
