Reluctant runner/walker/jogger

Recommended Posts

I knew W4d2 was going to be a battle this morning, blood pressure reading  high 140/105. So really did not feel like running this morning but glad I did was slow going but I did it.

yay me w4d3 done! I've got to learn to listen playing with my fitbit HR (checking my heart rate)  during my run I must have missed the prompt to walk because here I was trying to keep my heart rate above 100 jogging when I hear the prompt  "start running". Just as well I was in the right frame of mind and kept jogging until the next prompt "start walking". I am pretty pleased with myself maybe I can handle the dreaded 20 min jog next week.

Seems so quick posting my progress feels surreal, am I really on w5d1 did I complete it. My aching muscles tell me I did.

 

It was tough but I kept at it telling myself "I WANT IT!",I NEED IT", "I did it before I can do it again" And I did it

w5d2 done calves muscle very tender need to rethink how I am  warming up. The muscle was already aching from yesterday's walk as I was working on my stride and breathing for today's workout. I gave my calves a good massage last night and again before I started my workout it did help but towards the end I felt it tightening up and needed to nurse it to complete the session. Just finished massaging the calves and feeling much better

Been awhile since I have posted a pulled calf muscle no fun. I was out for a good 2 weeks.

Would've have been back sooner if I wasn't so stubborn and tried to work the 'torn' muscle while it was still healing.

The second week I did no walking at all just did my stretching exercises. On Sunday tried to do W6D1 as soon as I felt the muscle tightening I stopped and just walked. On Monday I did my usual walk and on Tuesday did W6D1, those two weeks off really made it tough, my calf muscle still felt a bit tight but not hurting so carried on and completed it. Wednesday normal walk. Thurs completed day2 still not 100% but I am looking forward to completing week 6 tomorrow. I have learnt that I need to warm up properly so I am doing my stretching exercise in addition to the normal 5min brisk walk. And again when after the cool down period.

Welcome back! Its great that you have learned what your body needs before during and after a work out. Sidelined with an injury is no fun, I know. Good luck finished up week six :)
