well it is 3 weeks after my gallbladder surgery and after being given the all clear to run by my surgeon 4 days ago i have finally plucked up the courage to hit the gym. Only really allowed to run as still no lifting ( or sit ups etc) for another 3 weeks. Quite pleased with the degree of fitness that i had maintained ( for those of you who dont know i started couch to 5k in january and graduated on time 9 weeks later doing a full 5k) so tonight i did a 5min walk warm up, 10 minute run, 5 min walk, 5min run including a 30 second speed session at end and then 5 min call down. quite chuffed that i managed 4.4km in that time. had slight stitch at end of the 10 min run but it settled on walking and didnt reappear. Legs feel fine, but HR took quite a while to recover. will see how i feel in the morning but race for life in June looks back on
