So I went to the cardiologist last Thursday and have a stress test coming up, gotta get my cholesterol checked and wear a halter monitor for 2 days. Then I'll meet with the doctor again for the results in early April. He said I could go on the treadmill but if I felt pain I should stop. So I got on the treadmill the next day (Fri) and walked. I want to finish what I started! And I don't want to lose momentum and have to start all over. I walked again on Sunday. Then Tuesday I did 2 miles and ran some of it. And again tonight I ran and walked to get to 2 miles. I'm no longer following the C25K program. I was only 2 workouts away anyway so just doing my own thing as I prep for the 5K in SIXTEEN days! I will finish it, even if I can't run the whole thing.
I haven't had pain in a few days and I'm not pushing myself at all. Just in case it was muscular, I don't want to injure myself again. And either way, I need to see a cardiologist because of family history so it's ok that I had to go thru this, as annoying as it is because it's worth the peace of mind.
I'm going to try to run outside this weekend! Wish me luck!!
