New to C25K

Dirty-dancing profile image

I just wanted to say hi to the 5K community. I haven’t started yet. I have been unable to run for over a year due to back problems. But recently received a nerve block injection, which means I am able to begin exercising. I wanted to build some muscle strength, doing HIT workouts before running.

Hopefully starting my 5k training very soon..... watch this space.

Happy running everyone 😀🏃🏻‍♀️👍

Wow, that's commitment!

Hi dd, welcome, and wishing all the best for your recovery. I expect you're seeing a physio, but there are some great strength for runners exercises on this website.

Thank you. 😀
