Back to the beginning. It felt good to be out there again!

Finally off the sidelines after my 4 weeks ankle injury. So I decided to test it out with week 1 of the podcasts just to see.

I am not pain free yet, but managed it yiphee!

It was amazing how quickly the 1 minute was over, when I first started the programme I used to puff my way through that minute wishing it to end. Realised we all come a long way after 9 weeks.

I remain cautious about the ankle, still taking anti-inflammatory meds. But moving onto week 2 on Monday, so fingers crossed

Well done, take your time. There is no rush, slow and steady and you will definitely benefit in the long term.


Good to have you back burstcouch. Take it easy, I hope all goes well for you and most of all enjoy. :)


Hi good that your ankle held up, I think that it is one of the learning lessons about running that you sometimes have to go backwards again but can go forward again more easily. Hope so anyway. I have had a virus and am going out for the first time this pm. Going to try week 6 run 2 but will default to week 1 if its too tough! Keep that ankle up if you can.


thanks for the comments guys, walked 6km today and it was fine, a few twinges of pain.
