Thanks Camlo. It seems OK if a little achey (I fractured it close to the shoulder).
I've just done my 2nd run since restarting and I really enjoyed it. I had to go way back into the 5K programme but I think the fitness is coming back faster than first time round.
Out of curiosity, does anyone know of what Fairwater Runners and Griffithstown Harriers (both Cwmbran) are like? They seem like they cater for beginners but I was just wondering if anyone knows of them.
I'm originally from Merthyr Tydfil but I now live in Cwmbran. I completed the Couch to 5k programme and had started a 10k programme but had to take 4 weeks off due to a broken arm. I started running again today and I'm trying to build up my distance again. I'm thinking I'll probably join one of my local running clubs soon.
Just thought I'd update everyone. I've been doing some core exercises but unfortunately didn't get round to treadmill work (a combination of being unable to join a gym with a broken arm and lack of motivation). Thankfully the orthopaedic surgeons have cleared me to run so I'm going to go on my first post-injury run tomorrow. I'm curious as to how much fitness I will have lost. I thought I might just jump a few weeks back in my training programme and see how it goes. Anyone have any tips (and thank you for all of your advice before)?
