Sounds like you have a great plan getting back to running..
I had to take a few years off after surgery and it is like starting
over.. But taking it slow really is good.. You can do it!!

Sorry to hear of the big C diagnosis, hope they got it all. Start slow, work your way back up. My wife has had knee problems and is starting again...but has tried too hard to regain her former fitness too quickly and is finding it to be unpleasant. Take your time. Life is a journey, not a race. Find joy in the journey.

Hello everyone. I am not new to running, but I find myself having to start at the beginning. I was actually training for my second half marathon last September when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I used the run/walk method when training and love running that way. I tried to continue running through chemo, but I found it was too hard on me. I did power walk on most days during treatment and stayed active to combat the fatigue. I finished chemo about three weeks ago and I have tried to pick up my running plan and it's a struggle. I have decided to start at the beginning again. Working with a beginner plan until I get stronger. Hoping to run some races in the spring.

Debbie
