This winter has been a shit show, but you don’t need me to tell you that. I’ve significantly let my training go and I’m now paying the price. The biggest drop in my fitness is felt when I’m done with a run. I remember when I first started running, how red my face was when I was finished, and that shit is happening again. It’s fucking embarrassing, but at least I know what’s happening and that a month is too fucking long to take off drinking beer, eating cake and playing video games.
This week I just started. 4 slow, short runs so far, but it’s definitely a start. I hate how far I’ve slid, but I’m trying to focus on building my base back up. I know that I can get back to where I was so that’s not really bothering me. It’s mostly that I’m sore and tired from distances that I was past being sore and tired from years ago. Damn that cake was amazing.
