Well - Saturday saw my return to running. I hooked up with Cal Coast and ran a little 6 miler. All systems appear to be good!
I was surprised at how much conditioning I've lost. Four miles would have been a perfect distance. Six miles was a little long though. I wanted to take it easy (and will continue to do so for the next few weeks), but by mile 5 I was just shuffling along. But, the real pain came a few hours later. Sore legs, sore back. Ugh - pain when I move. It felt good!
I'm now going to start a Higdon Intermediate 12 week conditioning cycle. We'll see where this all leads!
