Hi all , long time no chat .
well here goes , as some of you know I was diagnosed with Bowel cancer back in September . I had the tumour removed in late October and spent November recovering and today I had my last appointment for dressing changes. the histology came back not so good however , showing that it has spread to my lymph nodes.,Luckily the ones nearest the tumour , so not too much of a worry , just a couple of courses of chemo.
Just as well that I had completed c25k this year and kept up the 30 minute runs , actually achieving 4k about 33 minutes regularly . This improvement in my fitness is , I am sure what got me recovered from a major op so quickly . needless to say , running has not been a option for me the last couple of months and wont be until after the new year at least. I will be back and starting the c25k app all over again , as any of the stamina and fitness I gained has been severely depleted. I can't wait to start to start pounding the pavements again with my wide load coming thru t-shirt, but my knees will probably beg to differ .I miss it a lot , never thought id say that , its good for my head but there you go , I am a runner now and guess I always will be .
just thought id let those people who have supported me the 1st time through app [you know who you are] I will be back soon , albeit week 1 again . will keep you informed , but if not before xmas , you all have a good one
