I really miss doing the C25K program & even more so I miss the group...the social aspect of it. I don't know many people here in Roanoke & haven't met but a couple of people since moving here in late 2008. Like I said, I know a couple of people, but have no friends here. So it was great getting to know a couple of others at the group workouts, so I really miss that now. That went out the window. On the other side of it, I have gained 6 pounds back and my blood pressure has gone back up too! At the doctors last week it was like 159/97. Not good! I have an appointment at the orthopedic this Tuesday. I'll probably be out of running at least another 4-8 weeks, so it'll be probably be around February before I could even try again. So I figure I'll download the app & try to start my own C25K program in the spring. That way I can go at my own pace & repeat weeks if I need to. Plus it'll be getting warmer then too. The toughest part will be motivation and accountability without the mentors/coaches & the group to push me. I'm just so worried that my body can't handle running and that my ankle will get injured again or maybe next time it will be my knee, hip or legs...I'm just nervous about the injuries now. It seems my body won't cooperate. Hopefully when the spring get's here I'll be good to go and I pray I will have the will and motivation to persevere.
