So today was my first run on the couch to 5k plan since I fell. It was supposed to me run number 5 (AKA W2D2) having missed Wednesday. If I had stuck to the plan, today would have been W2D3 or run number 6. However you count it, the plan for today was walk 1 minute, run 1 minute and repeat 7 times.
Ummm… Not so much. I could run about 45 seconds and I only managed 6 repeats. I had to completely skip run #5.
This is getting really frustrating.
I know I’m not getting the body I had as a teenager back. I know that I am technically in the “overweight” section of the BMI scale at 146lbs on 5’4 frame. And I am OK with all of that. What drives me nuts is that even when I am adding extra activity and trying to improve my stamina it isn’t working.
Is it time for medical help? Maybe a referral to a physio therapist who could plan some workouts for me would make the difference.
