A late one today.
Monday’s always are. The children have their swimming lesson so I get an hour in the gym.
Until recently this has involved a pyramid bike HIIT session and core strengthening exercises.
Today is different.
I’ve had a Physio appointment where I’ve had the go ahead to begin low impact running on the treadmill.
I know this is going to be tough, weird and highlight just how much fitness I’ve lost.
But I don’t care. I’m going to do this.
I’ve not run since August. And my feet are itchy. So I’m going in on week 1 of Couch 2 5k – 5min walk, then 10 sets of 1min run/walk intervals followed by 5mins walk to cool down.
Guess what. I was wrong. I ran. And it was comfortable and happy and wonderful.
I covered 1.96km and felt I could have done more than 1min intervals and gone faster – but the instruction was low impact and build slowly so I will.
