So this is what is feels like to not have worked out for 6 months.

I went on the same walk today that I have gone on many many times.  Please, tell me why it was so hard!?  Yes, I do live around hills, but earlier this year I could almost run up the whole thing.  Today?  I could barely get myself to walk up it.  Starting back at ground -5 is in no way shape or size what I would call my idea of fun.

I had big plans for my work out today too.  I was going to do this new running app that I bought, and be right back to where I was.  Yeesh!  Not at this rate!  I've revised my work out strategy and I am just going to ease myself into it with just walking this week, and then next week I can start doing interval running.

The funny thing is that as I was doing this walk (that's right, only walking!  Well, maybe one day I'll get a photo of the hill I have to climb!) I thought about how before I thought I was sooOOoo out of shape.  I would kill to be back to where I was!

The good news though?  Thanks to losing 10 pounds, I fit into my work out clothes!  Holllaaaa!  No excuses for this girl!

I'm linking up today with Tell Me About it Tuesday!

  2. Yay for being back in your workout clothes!! I do interval running now, and it destroys me a bit. I wish you luck in keeping with and exceeding your workout goals. :)

  3. It is so hard to work out after a break! I usually just stick to the elliptical since running just immediately gives me a side stitch, but I feel so much slower and out of breath after a month off! You really have to just forget that it was ever easier and reset your baseline so that stop feeling crummy about it!
