Well tomorrow is D Day, having my gallbladder out so will be out of action for a couple of weeks. Think I am really going to miss my 'me' time when I normally go running. It is only 40 minutes 3 times a week but has definitely helped my sanity the last 3 months. Living with 3 small children ( 9,6,3) and a husband with clinical depression and then add in the need to lose weight and working 2 days per week in a stressful job and life is not always fun. However my venture into getting fit has been a lifesaver and just to have those few minutes when I shut the door, leave hubby to the chaos/ putting to bed etc and take a deep breath and go for it, makes a real difference. The natural endorphins really make you energised for the next 24 hours. So my plan is to get walking next week while off on sick leave and the kids back to school, gentle at first and then hopefully will be able to run again by week 3. Thinking i will need to start midway through ( i graduated about 4 weeks ago) but may be able to ramp it up quicker having been running 12k a week for the last 4 weeks.
Anyone else had a significant break (>2 weeks) due to ill health and got any advice re getting back to it.
