My other fitness goal is to run a half-marathon. I play to run for the first time in weeks on Saturday--a short 2 miles. I gotta work my way back up to my previous mileage without rushing. Otherwise, there will be more heartache.
Today, I did Ripped in 30 Week 1 and it was TOUGH! I am very out of shape muscle-wise and definitely running-wise after my break to nurse my hurt foot. I haven't been diligent with my glucosamine chondroitin either so my ankles were hurting a bit too.
I think I needed a break after being so hardcore most of the year. Now hopefully I'm back on track.
