Had to stop C25K with Achilles tendon injury in March 2014. The treatment caused me severe back pain issues so as a result I have gained weight from 74.6kg to my current 79kg.
I'm T2D and need to keep blood sugars under control. This was much easier when I was running 6 to 10K every other day and I loved the effect the running had on my well being.
I currently weigh in at 79kg and I have just started the 5:2 diet plan. Problem with that is I tend to sabbotage myself once I have to make OH meals on fast days. We had a long talk about that issue last night and come to the arrangement that he will fix his own meals on fast days so I can forget him. (AND he will stop buying nice chocolate as a 'Treat'!)
I am able to walk about 3K now but I do get painful cramps in my calf muscle when I try. I can cope with the 'fast exercise' plan and wondered if just riding the bike on a static stand would help.
My motivation is pretty low at the moment but I know I need to do something.
Anyone else out there trying to start running again?
Any tips would be helpful! Orthopaedic surgeon has told me it's not likely I'll ever run again.
