I graduated last week, still running very slowly and often finding it hard but so pleased with myself to have stuck with it. Repeated week 9 and the last run was the first that actually felt easier while as was doing it as opposed to giving me a great feeling after! On Wednesday night I came down with the worst food poisoning bout I can remember. Still in dressing gown and feeling weak but just starting eating again. I know there is no point in thinking about running for a bit (in fact right at this point I feel I might never walk again, never mind run!) but has anyone experienced anything similar? Any idea as to how long I might need to recover? I suppose I have worked so hard to get here I am frightened of going backwards!
Getting back post food poisoning?: I graduated... - Couch to 5K
I’ve had that vomiting thing. My husband brought it back from work but he was fine
Two days in bed without wanting to eat. It didn’t take me long to recover though
If your food poisoning is due to something more serious it can take much longer
Just relax and get well soon your running will be waiting for you when you are better 😊😊
Thanks buddy! It's the thought of finding that I am back to square one that bothers me but I don't suppose it will be that bad! Fingers crossed!
Not exactly this bug but I went down with sore throat and a chest cold a day after graduating. Dared to run the first time today. You are not alone!
I have pretty much decided to wait a week or so before I try to get back to running, depending on how I feel. Still feeling rubbish so it's hard to imagine feeling OK again if you know what I mean! Thanks for replying. It's good to know that I'm not alone in getting a bit of a setback, and in getting back to it!!
You have to build your reserves back up but you can’t get cracking with that til you feel like eating Bovril drinks are restorative, with dry toast maybe 🙂
Good news 😃👍🏃♀️
