Have you ever taken an extended break from running, then when you start back up, you feel like a total novice? I have finally started to get back into a running groove, but it has felt like I am running for the first time. I don't have a training plan in place. I do have several race possibilities circled on the calendar, but none for sure. In the meantime, I have decided to try daily running again. I have run every day for 2 solid weeks now, and am still slow and fat, but getting a little less slow. Now I need to work on getting a little less fat. Hopefully soon I'll start feeling less like a novice runner.
