...Working My Way Back into Training

Hi. :) It's me! I'm sure no one ever comes here anymore expecting to read something; I haven't been here in a LONG time! :o Nevertheless - here I am! :D

Along with the lack of posting, there has been a continual lack of running. I know. Darn. :(

I haven't swam since 2 summers ago, or biked at all since last summer; but I started running again in mid January - sporadically.

I was shocked to run only 5 miles and get really sore! And I ran a few 2 mile runs, first! Then I did it a couple more times, only to be sore again and again! I ran just over 7 today, and don't think I will be sore this time, but my heart REALLY FEELS IT, and my time is still slower than it was when I was training.

Here is a copy of my workouts so far this year (oh my, 5 months of workouts fit on this one little page! :o) I'm so ashamed! And I promise it will never happen again! :o

NOTICE- I ran on 9/17/2013, and my pace was 8:30. That was pretty normal at the time. But I stopped training in every way. And since then my pace has moved to 9.5-10 minute miles. When I trained the year before (2012 - when I actually trained and did two triathlons) I couldn't run 10 minute miles if I tried, it was just too easy and too slow. Wow! Now my heart aches at 9.5 minute miles!
 
I wrote the following on today's Daily Mile workout post:
 
7.08 mi
01:07
09:23 pace
Aggg! Hard workout! My heart REALLY felt that!!! And my pace is still WAY slower than it was when I was a regular runner! ***I KNOW... - I shouldn't be surprised. It doesn't make sense to stop running and expect it to be as easy or as fast as I was when I was consistent! Oh well... I just need to keep running! :o

I know I should expect this. After all,

"Use it or loose it!"
Time to get it back!

If I want to be good at something, I need to WORK for it! I need to be CONSISTENT!
I AM GOING TO DO THIS!!!

PS. So far, I have logged only 87 miles on Daily Mile (and I usually log my workouts. :o).
Looking forward to raising that number in a MAJOR way! :D

Corine :D
