Hi, Sharyn,James, Matthew, Ann, Gayle and Steve and anyone else I may have forgotten from the August beginners.
Yeah, I restarted as you suggested James, at week 5 on Monday. I thought (silly me) it would be a breeeze! Instead of that it was real hard! My son James (has Sports Science degree) said I needed to start at the beginning, so off I went again yesterday morning with week 1. It was lovely to repeat the course! Laura encouraging all the way, and by run 6 I was into it. The last two runs were up a gradient-oh I do punish myself! No problems with the breathing this time, but a lot of aches in the calves, who have been dormant for the past 6m. The knee was just fine.
I really need to get back into my running because on 23rd June myself and the family (Lisa excluded as due to give birth that week) are running 5k in the Race for Life in my husband Richard's memory. Richard died on 12th March from Cholangiocarcinoma (cancer of the biliary tree)-an up until now, untreatable cancer. Unfortunately he was referred to professor Wassan at Hammersmith Hospital too late. The charity was selected as one of two for the donations. if you wish to support this research the link is bit.ly/YvSTeC
I do hope that no one is offended by me putting the link down, but this guy is really tackling this cancer head on. The research is completely charity reliant, and having read all the documentary evidence of the beginnings of successes in this quarter I want to give as much support as I can so that others don't suffer.
Richard, fortunately, went down fast and didn't live to suffer the pain in the end stages of this dreadful disease, and I thank God every day for carrying out my request.
I'm good! I've allowed everything that needs to happen to happen, and I know there is more to come, but I also know that Richard is in a better place right now and watching over me.
Thank you guys for all the support I was given during the time we were fighting this monster.
Keep on Running
