So, almost 2 years to the (29 November 2015) after breaking my femur whilst running at the end of week 4, (see previous posts if you’re interested in just how someone can manage to break the biggest bone in the human body while jogging, very slowly!)
2 operations and after a year of serious attention from a brilliant sports therapist and recently a personal trainer later, my leg finally feels like it might be ready to start c25k again...My mind however, is another thing, along with most of the friends and family I’ve spoken to, who think I’m crazy to try it again. I just feel like I really need to do it to prove to myself a) that I can and b) to get some closure on a horrible couple of years, that started with ‘popping out’ for a Sunday morning run.
So lying in bed this morning writing this having downloaded the app and trying to convince myself to just go and try it, actually feeling sick with nerves I thought the best thing I can do is post on here and hopefully get some moral support. Plus I’ll feel like I’ll have to get the courage to do it if I post it on here it somehow makes it more of a commitment. I am having to run on my own as my daughter, can not bring herself to run with me after her last experience of a run with Mum and I don’t blame her for that! Maybe when I have completed the programme she’ll have more confidence to join me occasionally.
My original goal was to complete the programme in time to do the 2015 Boxing Day Park run in Swindon. My goal now is to complete the Swindon Park Run at some stage but I’m not putting a time limit on it this time.
Sorry for long post, needed to get this off my chest.
