  1. RE: the running/training

    Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.

    In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.

    The distance increased, then the speed.

    Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.

    And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)

    Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

      Thanks for the feedback. I got the 5k walking everydy thing down and now I just need to start jogging parts of it. It feels like an interesting experience so far. (I can only say interesting because I'm not all that positive about it, but Im sure Ill get there.)

      hahaha...I have the same thing about going out. I know that I like walking (and so do my dogs), but getting out the door is more difficult than the walk itself. /sigh
