Hi everyone. I’ve been using the app for awhile but finally decided to join in the forums.
When I got the app, it was a halfhearted idea to improve my fitness.
I hated running. It was like torture and I felt like I was dying after jogging 30 seconds.
I gave up, tried again, gave up and then something unexpected happened.. I got to 50 seconds before dying lol and then a minute so I thought I would see what happens if I stay consistent.
I got to week 4 and I could actually jog 3mins and I felt stronger and proud of myself and found that I was enjoying running (now that shocked me. I totally didn’t expect that to happen).
Shortly after all this, I somehow sprained my ankle. I really have no clue how I did it but it wasn’t running and I couldn’t run for months. And it was the medial side of the ankle not the lateral which is more common and quicker to heal
Its been 6 months and I still get twinges but I had to start back at week 2 and I’ve made it back to week 4.
I am 52 in NC. Mom of a college student.
