I can't believe I'm so gutted about this but I am. Me and my sister have been following the programme and loving every minute of it. We got up to Week 8, Run 1 and ran for 28 minutes (woohoo!!) but have since both been struck down with tonsillitis and advised by our doctors that we shouldn't run for 2 weeks. I can tell I've definitely got the running bug because I'm actually feeling very down in the dumps about it!
I'm now worried that we'll have lost the fitness we developed when we run again, and don't know where we should start from. Do people think we should just go out and run and see how long we can go for, then build from there? Or would going back to intervals be the best plan? I'm really hoping we can get back up to speed (well, snail's pace but running nevertheless!) as soon as possible. We should have been starting our week 9 tomorrow and I'm beginning to look with envy at the lovely graduate badges people are displaying, which now seems so far away again
Any advice would be gratefully received.
