I am generally fit (ish) and well, apart from a couple of artificial discs in my back, but since starting this great podcast I have been ill twice. Man flu type symptoms, aching, complete lack of energy and headaches.
Twice now I have had to stop. The first time I got to WK3 R3 then was sick for a week. This time, after starting from WK2 again, I got to WK4 R2 and was really pleased with the 5min runs....then bamb! just been ill for 4 days, man flu, bad stomach, knackered!
I have been trying and succeeding in losing weight for the last year so It's always a low carb diet of chicken, nuts, cheese with lots of water and red wine in the evenings. Also my blood pressure is higher than it's ever been (just over the high point of normal 150/90) but I put that down to a 44 year old body that's never ran before.
I am ready to go at it again, I am determined to finish the whole 9 week podcast...I even bought a running bum bag! although my wife refuses to talk to me whilst I am wearing it!
Should I go back to WK3 R1?, WK1 R1? or carry on where I left off at WK4 R2 ?
Any advice would be very appreciated.
