Keep building up slowly. You have a strong level of fitness so will be back soon.

I'm working on it! Thanks.....but patience is not something I'm good at.

With that being said tomorrow is going to be a beautiful day and probably the first time the Cowtown Marathon has had good weather. Around 40F at the start of the race, sunny, and no wind. A couple of years ago I stood at the start while they gave directions on what to do when the tornado sirens went off.
SOOOOOO, I can't stay home. grrrrrr and I know I'm not ready to even run the half without needing to sleep the rest of the day. BUTTT I can't stay home so I'm not. We have a guy in our club and this will be his 100th marathon and a lot of us have signed up to run a few miles with him. I have mile 14-17.
THIS STILL STINKS

Ok, I really have to stop ending up on page two!

Monday-4 mile run easy, core workout
Tuesday- air was too cold and trying to follow at least part of doc rules
Wednesday-45 mins. trainer, pushed to get heart rate up
Thursday-5 mile run easy. Felt good but took it slow


Sorry for the dark picture but you got to love a man who runs a marathon on Saturday and then flies out that day to New Orleans for his 101 marathon the next day.!Image

Awesome, you're back! Hope you're getting healthy now.

two marathons in two days sounds like not a lot of fun, eh?

gms, your return to running sounds similar to mine. I'm still stuck on the treadmill due to low energy, difficulty breathing and rain with strong winds outside all week. I'm hoping to get back outside for my Tuesday run. Hope your health continues to improve. Good luck with training next week...looks like you're on your way back. :)

Well done GMS, keep building up slowly. Listen to your body and don't overdo it!

thanks! My logging habit has gone down hill too. I need to work on that.

Saturday-6 mile jog, last mile still felt good enough to pick up the pace to about a tempo run

Sunday-off and slept in. I HATE TIME CHANGES especially this one

Monday-1hr easy swim, just didn't seem able to relax, upper body wayyyyy to tight

Tuesday- grrr raining. 45 mins on treadmill but 10 min. tempo pace. Only tripped on the stupid thing twice today.

Wednesday- I GOT TO RIDE MY BIKE. I love the wheel set....Aeolus 6.5, but it is going to take some getting used to the aerobar. My back is a little tight now.

Hey hey! You're back! How have you been? Pic? Yes I need to post a pic of my new wet suit :lol: :lol: Or is it my new shoes??? Pics are on the camera at home and lately I'm never there. Too bad my phone won't upload here.

Monday-1 hr run easy with a few hill repeats :D no pain in the lungs anymore Yipeeeee
Tuesday-1 hr swim-staying out of masters for awhile. Between current job, future job, kids, and mainly now being out of shape, I don't want to be in anyone's way. Seems easier for now to swim on my own.
Wednesday-1 hr bike ride-all flat, med. pace/20 min run...really just chasing kids around the track
Thursday-45 min swim. dropping my hip again when I breath grrrrr
Friday-1 hr bike ride

How about a 30 (or 100! ugh) day running challenge where we try to run as much as possible and aim for everyday (easy for you!). We could/should open it up to all on the running forum and track any who join? Hows that sound? Any other ideas?
