Not really completed ...

Dear team members,
First of all I want to congratulate all of you with completing the Kenzai run and the achievements you have made.
Well done!

Second I need to apologise for not having posted anything for almost 4 weeks. Sorry!
I mentioned in my last post having trouble with the tendons in both my legs and stopped doing any exercise.
When I arrived home 2 weeks ago I did see my family doctor who send me to a sports doctor specialised in trouble with the musculoskeletal system. His conclusions were clear: overload of both achilles tendons

His slotion was quite clear as well: loose 30 kg of weight!
Off course I knew that already, that is why I joined Kenzai. He did not give me exercises for the Achilles' as he said he was afraid in my current condition it would only make it worse. Activities I should be doing is swimming, cycling and perhaps cross-trainer.

So far started a bit of cycling which seems OK. The Achilles' still hurt when I walk and sometimes wake we up in the middle of the night. It is going to be a long and slow recovery and I am focussing on my diet (again).

Take care all, we may meet again in another Kenzai program.
Menno

Thanks for checking back in with us Menno. I know the leg issues were not what you were hoping for this program. It's a good idea to follow the doctor's advice and being careful with what exercises to choose for your body right now. Some moderate, no-impact exercising like swimming, stationary cycling and elliptical are good ideas to keep yourself being active.

Give some thought on what you would like to do next so you can work towards your diet and fitness goals you have for yourself. There are many programs beginning in May. Maybe a 4-week Reboot program. You don't need to do all the exercises of the program. But simply find the low/no-impact cardio options that work for you, and any easy strength work. Being in a program with teammates for 4 weeks, and committing to the diet and active participation with your teammates could really help continue things on for yourself towards the body mass loss goal to help your legs and overall health. Give it some thought and let us know if you have any questions. We here to help you succeed.

Thanks for giving the run program a try. Maybe down the road you can give it another shot when the legs are more up for it. COMPLETE (for now)!
