Getting your running legs back takes longer when you’re 46 instead of 15 maybe. Also, while I was making some progress the first couple of weeks, I slacked off last week.
I just didn’t get out on the practice field and run laps.
I’ll get back to it this week, which probably won’t help much for Saturday’s run, but this is all a process. I get that.
My time is limited.
I now have just six months to get myself up to running 14 miles and capable of leaping over fire or fighting dinosaurs or whatever it is they’re putting out there for the Spartan Race.
I haven’t looked too deeply. Why spoil the surprise?
In the meantime, I’ve subscribed to an email newsletter that’s supposed to provide me with workout tips and things to help me prepare.
I haven’t actually opened in any of these emails, but it’s a process, right? One step at a time.
