Last night I ventured to my gym for the first time since before Tough Mudder in early September.
I’ve run outside a few times, but I really want to get back into having the gym as a regular installment in my
daily weekly routine. While driving to the gym, I decided to do 4 miles on the treadmill and try for 5 miles if I was feeling good. I need to get back in shape for my 10K on November 4th.
Um…I didn’t realize that when you don’t really run for a month, you pretty much lose your endurance! Welp, looks like I’ve got a lot of work to do in the next 4.5 weeks.
Starting from week 4, mid-week – ready, go!
I huffed and puffed through a 3.1 mi treadmill run and waddled over to my long-lost friend. (Please ignore my sweaty knees.)
Oh, how I’ve missed you, foam roller.
After I got a good workout in, I promptly ate an entire bag of gummi bears.
I needed to refuel…
Do you ever take breaks from running? How long does it take you to get back into shape?
