Hi, I walked on day 2 , 1/4 mile slip by day 4 I was walking 1mile a day , day seven 2 miles , by day 10 I could walk 6miles at 15 min mile pace, therefore maintaining fitness, it was my double hernia recovery test stopped me running otherwise would have started jogging in week 3 or 4 and slowly built back up. My hernia still pulls 8 weeks on but can run with no problem gallbladder wise and ran 19 min 5km yesterday , be sensible but doubt be afraid to try light jog if walking feels good after 2 weeks
I have date for my op, 20/12 and wondering how long I'll be out of action for, hoping 6 weeks and no more before start jogging.
Ran 10km last week in 41m 04 secs but struggled with stomach cramps in km 7 and 8 , pleased with time but a missed opportunity as should have been my first ever sub 40 min, it would have meant a lot just before the op
Cracking splits johnas, thanks for sharing your training plan too. I can only dream of 35 mins , my first aim is to try and equal or improve my time of my last 10km 4 years ago (41m30secs) , planned attempt ulverston 10km run on December 2nd.
Thanks Lou and johnas. Johnas what splits did you run? From memory,I'm normally the one being chased down. I think I will change tactics.
Lou, good luck with your cross country, I've not done one for 22 years maybe a target to do one next year when fit again
Hope all is going well shelagh, keep the posts on your progress coming, I have a vested interest.
I'm 37, 6ft in good shape 11st9llbs and running 10km in training in about 42 mins and sub 20min (just) for 5km
However I am waiting for double hernia op and removal of gallbladder in one go, told should be key hole surgery. I'm worried how long I will be laid up for and unable to run.
Don't have date for op but told that should be between end of nov and mid December. It can't come soon enough although I have decided to do a 10km race on December 2nd if not had op, hoping to beat my previous time in last 10km which was 4years ago and 41m30, I'd love to do a sub 40min but will have to be a post op target and challenge I think
Continue your fast progress but don't over do it. Keep me updated
