This is my story. I'm training for my next race and beyond and would like to go from the back of the pack to somewhat middle of the pack.

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.
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.
