There is no reason to "start over," instead put yourself in a holding pattern. Just hang with some shorter walks to keep you moving and when you are ready to move to longer times/distances you will be ready without the need to start over. It's ok to take more than the 5 weeks for the program. Just track your shorter walks on your fitness page only and when you are back on track with the program then track on the training log.

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.
- Helen Keller

Don't look at life as "you have to," view it as "you get to." It puts the fun back in things.

Good for you to be moving. It is important to walk and move after surgery, but it is also important to listen to your body and move as your body dictates. It might be good to take several shorter walks rather than one long one. If you are tired or painful, listen to your body and shorten your walk. You can walk again later.

Keep going.
