Starting from the middle

Now that I’m back in the full swing of exercising it feels great.  My active heart rate is starting to drop, I feel my self getting stronger and soon enough, the pounds will start dropping. But it took a huge ego check to get back on the right path again.

Two months ago after getting medical clearance to exercise again I resumed my normal workout. I hadn’t taken into account that I had a three month lull so when I worked out, it wasn’t as fulfilling as I remember. Matter of fact, it was discouraging.  I wasn’t perfoming where I thoughtt I should be.

Before the injury, I was running a 8 minute mile on the treadmill for 3 miles. I was a great accomplishment on my part. When I returned I knew there would be some loss but I thought I could just keep the same pace and force my body to catch up to the old routine but my body wasn’t having that. I fell well short of my goals.

After a couple weeks I decided to step down my efforts. I immediately noticed an improvement. It was then I realized my error. Now, I’m taking things a little easier than before. I know I will get back to where I was eventually. I just have to work at it.
