My friend and I started training in October and by mid December we could run 5k fairly comfortably then, due to situations beyond our control, we had to stop training for a bit. We started again this week expecting to be able to run for at least 15 mins but were shocked to discover we had lost almost all the fitness we had built up.
We have had to go back to week 3 of the RW 5K beginners programme and even that is a bit of a struggle.
We had originally planned to do a 10k in May but that seems very unlikely now, will probably powerwalk at best.
Is this common and will we ever get our fitness back?
