So... I'm hoping that you will all hold me accountable for what I am about to write, the idea is that because I have told you all that I am back on the programme tomorrow morning then it will happen....
I did my last run on Tuesday 24th July, it was week 4 run 1 and it was tough, my intention was to run on the Thursday as we were going away on the Friday but my body just hadnt recovered (did I mention how tough Tuesday's run was???)
So the next week was spent on holiday and my next intention was to run on Saturday 4th August but I woke up with a terrible pain in my left calf, a call to NHS direct, telephone conversation to the on call gp and next thing I know I'm waiting at a&e with suspected blood clot..... Thankfully it wasn't that and the doc also gave me the go ahead to continue with the running even while the pain is still there (apparently exercise will help)
So.... Here's the plan, I'm back in work tomorrow but I intend to go to the gym first thing, run and shower, still haven't decided whether to repeat a week 3 run or attempt week 4, maybe I'll toss a coin unless any of you have some advice?
I shall report my success tomorrow!
