Where to start after 10 days or so off due to illness

Recommended Posts

Last Thursday I completed Week 3 day 2. On Friday I got very sick due to one of my arthritis medications. I lost 6 pounds over the weekend. Could not eat, drink or hold down food or water for about 72 hours. Ended up in the ER on an IV and a whole mess of other things I won’t go deeper into. That was a week ago and although I’m on the mend I would imagine it will be about another 3 days before I am able to exercise again. Should I start up at Week 3 Day 3 like normal and see how I do? Or since there is a good chance I lost strength and stamina I was starting to build up should I go back in to week 2 maybe not the start of week 2 but maybe day 2 or 3 and work my way back up? I don’t won’t to regress but I don’t want to over do it either.

 

Thanks in advance

I would recommend starting week 3 all over again. Restart the week after taking some time off. Start with Week 3 day 1 and see how you handle that. If you feel like it is going to be too much for you, just go back to week 2. But honestly, you know your body better than anyone. Just do what feels right for you.

I started back at it today. After much thought I decided to start where I left off. My thought was I don’t miss a beat and keep going on the road I was on, or it’s a disaster and I have to go way back but there is only one way to find out. 

 

Well i knocked it out of the park this morning. This was my best effort to date on C25K. For the first time I said to my self I can do this. I don’t know if it was determination, dumb luck or I have really come this far. I feel good about my progress for once.
