Back in the game .... at Week 1 again!

Took a couple of weeks to rest dodgy right leg - well, as much as I could with a toddler and a job at the top of a very steep hill!

My leg is feeling much better, but I decided to start from scratch and build up to where I had got to before (the lofty heights of W2R1!!)

Two sessions in and the pain is much slighter. I have invested in a foam roller (the Grid, with all the massage points). Between some good stratches, massage using the roller, then a banana and a hot shower, the calf cramps really ease.

One more rerun to do in Week 1, then back to the 90 second bursts of Week 2. Yippeee!!

Well done for getting back to C25k. That shows real determination. Fingers crossed for your fitness!


Thanks very much for that! I was starting to enjoy it, so I really want to get going properly again.
