I had just completed two 25 minute walks before I went on holiday. I suffered a burn on my leg which, I think, resulted in water retention. My legs were like tree trunks and granny ankles was an understatement. Somehow I managed to gain 10lb and a huge blister - just above my ankle. By today (Friday), after two days rest, my legs were much better so I thought I would go and see how far I could run. Holy crap, did I struggle!
It was different this time though. When i first started c25k my breathing was fine as i frequently took my dog for brisk walks, it was my muscles in my calves that I struggled with but today it was my breathing. I could only mange a couple of minutes and spent most of my route walking. Now my ankle is swollen again. I don't know whether to rest and go back a couple of weeks or start again. I am so disappointed as I really felt like a runner before my holiday! Any advice would be welcome.
