Well its week 2 and while yes I have dropped back on my mileage and speed work - I have had no pain!
I am doing strength Pilates every second day and will now try to do them every day. I am so pleased to have walked with no pain for my last few walks.
I did catch some kind of a stomach bug this week and it has made walking a tad difficult. I did go out on Thursday and walk 8km with Paul and Kay. Very slow and steady pace but there were two emergency loo stops.
Today I was starting to feel a little better. No more flying dashes to a toilet or curled up with stomach cramps. So I decided to head out and do 5km. I felt good and kept to a steady pace. I was not pushing hard and was pleased to see that after my first warm up km the rest were pretty much 6min kms.
Before I left for my walk I had changed the battery in my heart strap and when I finished and saw that my heart was 251 beats per minute ... I knew I had fritzed my strap. So I googled it when I got home and found that you are meant to wait for a minute between battery change. Well there you go.....it works now :) Yay
Total time 30.15
