Here’s the thing about starting something over from square one.
You can feel discouraged, overwhelmed and angry.
It can seem frustrating and unfair.
You can waste plenty of time comparing your current situation to your past and wishing you could magically go back.
BUT. You can always look at it as a chance to start fresh… set goals… work hard… and become better than ever.
I’ve still got a long way to go until I’m running anywhere near as far or as fast as I used to, but I’m surprising myself every day with what I’m capable of doing.
I’m progressing much more rapidly than my running program recommends, but it feels right for me and I’m not hurting myself.
Today I did four intervals of walking 0.25 and running 0.5 and my ankle felt stronger the longer I ran.
My endurance is still lacking, but that will come back over time.
I’m feeling more like the runner — and person — I used to be.
I can’t wait until I feel completely solid and and can start training for a 4:00 marathon.
I’m kinda liking this square one.
