Following my two week penance given by my doc and having taken all my meds for my asthma, I finally got back to running last week. As the cold air is still a trigger I am back to the good old treadmill.
I decided to re-do wk 7 to give my lungs and legs the chance to strengthen. It has been the same as always, hard but possible. A bit of cement legs and exploding lungs here and there lol. On the upside I am now on the same week as my other half, who started after me so we will graduate together......how lovely!
I mentioned in my other post that I have agreed to train for the cardiff half marathon. If all goes well and I stay injury free and on schedule I know I can do it. Meanwhile.....back at the ranch I am getting ready for a 10k in March. Whilst I cannot start the physical prep until graduation, I have certainly begun the mental side of things as I think aside from turning up and running 3 days a week and keeping moving things along (same as c25k), the hardest thing will be the mental barrier. I am already beginning to feel more confident in myself as I am not worried about time and am happy to put in the effort so I figure I can do it!
Wk 8 here I come
Wishing you all success
