Charge! (slowly)

I hit the trails again yesterday. I did 3.6 miles with my one of my sons, half of which was uphill (from 340 ft. to 760 ft.). It wasn’t running, but we walked at a pretty good clip, and some sections of the trail that we took were pretty steep, providing the much-needed heartrate increase. The trail was marked very well, and there were lots of walkers, runners, and even a few bikers on the trail while we trod it.

Darn if I didn’t wear myself plumb out. I guess the combination of not having done anything for two months, plus still being on the mend from various and sundry miscreants of the microbial persuasion, sapped what remains of my strength. My legs today are sore.

I view this as a good thing. Progress!

    I hear ya. I had a two month injury hiatus recently, and it was pretty darn depressing getting started all over again. Even so, it came back pretty quickly for me, and I’m confident that it will for you as well. Keep on it!

    Look! See! You don’t suck! Starting somewhere is better than not starting anywhere. I ran last night after a month break(which I have no excuse for). You inspired me and I got off my behind and did it. Last night was great, but I’m guessing tonight won’t feel so good, and tomorrow……ouch.

    Getting out the door is half the battle.
