Still on the Injury Couch in sick bay... Haven't done any exercise since my last run on 11/01 and i came down with what I hoped would be a simple head cold/cough but has continued to keep me in sick bay. I have at least started to feel human again. I was going to try go for a short walk this Thursday but felt lousy still so stayed in sick bay... but yesterday, Friday I felt not too bad (apart from the grotty chest and cough and decided to get the car out and drive to the library and return some books and then go to the shop.
Well as I got into the car I felt a bit of an ache in my back...and by the time I got in I was reduced to a slow hobble. i think this has been set off by my coughing...though I am no stranger to back issues unfortunately.
It is so frustrating as don't know when I'll get out for a run...I still have week 2 to complete from last week and just feel it's been so long I won't progress from there I might have to revert to week 1. The only plus is that I was off my food and have managed to lose a few pounds and keep them off even though my appetite has returned.
Ironically, we are getting ParkRun here in my town which is great news and I hope it is well supported when it starts next month. I think even my sister and her daughter are coming for the inaugural event too.
I had thought I might do it...my sister says a lot of people do a mix of jogging and walking and take it easy.
If I hadn't been crocked and had been well, do people think that the C25K programme should be done before attempting a ParkRun or would it be ok to do it just walking jogging intermittently like on the programme? (and stopping if struggling)
Stay healthy those that haven't been lurgified yet! And get well soon if you are currently suffering.
