I've been struggling!

So not to bore you again I lost my mono after my calf injury😣 for the last three weeks I've only run once a week but after turning 50 on Monday (the very reason why I started to improve my health etc). I've even ignored the notification emais! However I woke up on Tuesday and realised that actually it still isn't too late. So out I went. Went back to week 5 run 1 and surprisingly found it fine so ran an extra 2 mins. So now I'm mentally in back in the zone. Here's to w5r2!

  • Don't suffer on your own, we are here and 50 is nothing. In fact my doctor said 50 was the new forty. So if that's good enough for a GP it's good enough for me. Well done though on picking yourself up and going out. It's really hard to do and so easy to give into the gremlins. But you didn't and you're back - hurrah. Kill that run 2

  • Well done for getting back out there. It can be hard to pick it all up again after time on the ic. (I've had a spell there myself recently and the first few runs are sometimes really tough!) Glad yours went well - and Jancanrun is right about 50 being the new 40! I'm 52 and graduated a couple of years ago - so pleased to have running in my life! Keep it up!🙂

  • Good for you 🙂 Go gently. No pressure

    Enjoy yourself 🙂

  • ...and 67 is the new 47... ha, ha... :)

  • Well done on your determination. This programme is to help us all individually get fitter so it doesn't matter how long we take or how fast/slow we are. You are now back on track and here's to your next run.

  • Very very well done...keep it slow and keep it steady and you will be fine:)

  • Good for you!!

  • Also hit the 50 club this year ...it's only a number I'm just off for week 2 run 1 so fingers crossed will manage it!!

  • Well done...& 50??? So?? You're as young as you feel....I'm 50 next year (gulp) then that's it, no more birthdays for me!!!

  • Haha thanks everyone. To be honest I feel so much younger than 50 and this plan has definatelyhelped!
