I have been running again for about a month now. Got on a 19 week schedule to the Dallas White Rock Marathon on December 4 2011. So far I have not missed a single run, but I know that will change eventually.
The runs have not been easy. I believe I am paying the price of allowing myself to get so out of shape over the last couple years. It is just not fun to run yet, I keep waiting for the time to come, but I am usually stiff, and don’t get “rolling” until mile 4 or 5.
This week is going to be a true test, I have a 9 miler this Saturday. Last Saturday I died on a 5 mile run. It was so difficult just to finish it. Today it is 3 miles, hoping I can bounce back and begin to feel like a runner again.
