Week 2 of week 2!

grumpyoldgirl profile image

Was just about to jump in the shower this morning when I thought, I can get in a run first, and shower when I get home. So that's what I did! I'm repeating week 2 this week because I'm recovering from a broken ankle and I'm going to take it slowly, but everything felt fine. Did my warm down stretches when I got home, finally had my shower, and coffee. Fab!

Thanks Sola, I'm having to be self-disciplined which does not come naturally, but so far so good🤞

Seems like a very sensible and effective way to go given your injury.I'll be interested to hear how you go as you recover. Best wishes ☺️

Thank you, I'll keep posting. It helps to keep me on track, having to account for myself😁

Well done for taking it easy and going steady. I will be starting from week 1 again as I too have an injury which is dragging on. Just waiting for it to heal then back to scratch.

Sorry to hear you're stuck on the IC, hope you won't be there too long🤞

Thanks, damaged achilles and painful when walking at the mo. Will be a few weeks till I get the running shoes on again.

Well done Grumps, glad you are still on it. I'm still some way off restarting, just trying to build up walking distance at the moment but slowly slowly catch the monkey.
