Back to running

Finally I am back running after laying off for 4+ months. I actually started running last week. For now, my running consists of mostly walking and just increasing my speed every couple of minutes. I am also sticking to the treadmill so I run on an even surface. After my run last week, I did feel some pain and so for now, I have decided I will run once or twice a week. Mostly it will be walking with a wee bit of running but at this point, I am willing to take just about anything.

I didn’t realize how much I miss running. It felt so good to be back on my feet. The other thing I realized was that I was apparently in pretty good shape (by my previous standards.) I had a really tough time running even a minute at a time and I remember I was running close to 40 miles a week last year. Sucks. Why cant the body retain all the stamina improvements achieved over the last couple of years? It does retain the fat doesn’t it – stupid thing.

The one thing that running does provide is a lot of time to think. I can’t read a book while running, so it is either music or thinking. Maybe this will lead to a lot more posts :).
