So having started out last Thursday on WK1 I then had too many days off due to family committments and illnesses so decided to rerun WK1R1 today. Last week I managed. Just.
Today I really struggled and had to stop halfway through the second run interval as my ankle seized up. I walked the rest of way and just about managed to do the last run at the end. Really hoping my ankle is ok for Saturday as I don't want to go as long as last time and want to start properly with the programme. Feeling pants at the moment and worried that my old and decrepit body is not up to task.
I understand it does get easier but as I'm struggling to set a decent pace just walking I'm wondering if I'll ever be able to run more than 60 seconds at a time. It doesn't seem to be a general fitness issue (yes I get out of breath but I can do it) - more my ankles (or the front of my ankles/feet) and my inability to lift my feet more than 2 inches from the hard ground!
