I found a new park to run in and it is great. It is actually the same park that I run in a lot but a different section. I ran on both Saturday and Sunday. The run on Saturday was great, not far but it felt good. It felt so good that I went back on Sunday and planned on running a trail that I saw through the woods. This turned out to be a mistake. I started running and this thing went straight downhill. My knees are still hurting 3 days later from the pounding they took running for nearly a mile downhill through the woods. Because of the pain I did not run the last couple o fdays but I did go for a swim on Monday and a bike ride last night. I'm just as far out of shape on the bike and in the pool as I am running but it felt nice to start and the bike made my knees stop hurting.
How hard! It's been about 7 months since I did any kind of exercise. I've gained 20+ pounds and feel like crap. I keep saying tomorrow I'll start but it comes and goes. This past weekend I ran for the first time, a short 1 mile run and I had to push myself to make it a mile. For the next 3 days I hurt! How do you get back up and get going? HELP
I'm just an average middle age guy that is trying to get his life back. One day I looked up and didn't recognize myself; I was fat, bald, and attached to the couch. I have a wife, son, and dog who I love and they love me. I will turn my life around starting with my health.
