Replaced the sneakers and the work shoes. The feet are feeling improvement already. Coldness kept me indoors for my mid-week run and work knocked me off schedule a bit, but we got all the runs in.
Started the week very bummed out because I lost more stamina/speed than expected from two months off. I kept having to stop and walk a bit even on the short runs. Was seriously depressing me and concerning me. I can’t do 3 miles now, how will I do 26 in 15 weeks !@#$!!
But we had a turn for the positive this week. I bowed to reality and slowed down a little at the start. My main problem has been trying to start at my old speed as if I had no time off. Then I’d get winded and have to walk and once that cycle starts, it’s hard to break. Finally on my mid-week run I just knocked the treadmill down to 7.5mph in stead of 8mph to start (I normally increment speed a litte as I go). All of a sudden, I could complete. I did my 4 on the treadmill non-stop. Once I did my four, I did my next 3 non-stop. Outdoors on Sunday 6-er, I only took one brief unscheduled walk towards the end.
I feel much more positive now. I started last year slower than this and I worked up to faster. I’ve gotten past the mental blockage now.

Wow! Was all bummed this morning thinking I was going to be registering an up-week because I had hit some recent new lows mid-week. Gave them up in the 2nd half (work! work! work!) but I guess I hung on to some. Cheered me right up! I am still very behind of reading/commenting on posts (I have a ton starred still to revisiting). Light vaguely visible at end of tunnel.
I’d say off to the road, but I already did my run this morning. It’s cold! 22F! There’s some motivation to keep going once you start!

Don’t do something for 2 months and it gets harder! Who knew! Was kind of a bummer – I’ve definitely lost stamina and speed. And I’m going to have to replace the sneakers now – pavement running is definitely not for these guys anymore. Knee pain from Thursday’s rock wall climbing did not help.
But, we have begun!
