I did it, I finally went back to the gym for the first time since the start of December. I’m still not 100% cured of the vertigo so I just took it steady.
I went on Wednesday after work and did 15 minutes run/walk intervals on the treadmill and then 15 minutes on the bike. On Friday, I did some weights for about 15 minutes and then 20 minutes of run/walk intervals then 10 minutes on the bike. I had planned on going Thursday after work but felt too ill.
I’m finding the vertigo worse after the treadmill. It’s when I slow down or stop it’s almost as if I get disorientated it and feel dizzy. Doom.
I also signed up to a half marathon in May. I’m hoping I’ll be better by then so I can run it properly, I have an appointment with the specialist on the 25th so hopefully he can help me manage the vertigo a bit better.
I’m on a health kick now and I want to lose a stone to get back to where I was before I spent a month sat on my arse being dizzy. I’ve started using the hashtag #fityear to talk about my progress on Twitter and invite other people to do the same. You can read more about #fityear here. I’m thinking of doing some weekly challenges and things if people want to get involved!
How’s your week been?
