I finished the week 1 run 3 on the Saturday, it was hard but I survived even though hip was crunchy. The unaided walking bit is extra exhausting but I’m getting there. Getting ankle pains though which is concerning.
The following day was Sunday and visiting parents day, so I’m glad I got chance to relax and recover my joints.
Monday still hip sore, I took a weights day, and Tuesday was total recovery day due as we had the #StaffordCountyShow on Wednesday.
Wednesday was amazing but ultimately it bodily broke me, just from standing when I had too, and walking when I had too.
Thursday passed in a lot of pain from the day before. This isn’t fun. But it’s expected.
Friday was the first day we felt we could start our week 2 couch to 5k. The sun was shining and we went to #staffordcastle for a different place to walk. But wow!! That was super difficult. More uneven ground, and uphill. I needed to sit down a lot, rest a lot, and afterwards once home I slept!!
Saturday it was weights day, increased
to 6kg dumbbells which felt so much harder to me. But glad I did it.
Bicep Curl 10reps x2
Shoulder Press 10reps x2
Lateral Raise 10reps x2
Front Pick Up 10reps x2
Bicep Row 10reps x2
Tricep Kickback 10reps x2
Chest Press 10reps x2
Tricep Overhead 10reps x2
So it was a pants week for the couch to 5k wise, but you know, life happens and dysplasia is unpredictable and crippling at times, so I know I can only do it when my body says so. It may be a start of week 3 next week, but I’ll be continuing with week 2 to finish it when I can.
