After six weeks off, which is a much longer blog post in the works, I am now starting my running over again. I FEEL slow and fat and stiff, and already I started to wonder, 'do I really want to put myself through this?' And the answer is 'yes'. The answer is yes because so many times I have gotten out of shape due to summer or an injury and it is ALWAYS hard to start back up. That is the lesson to be learned from starting over on something you previously had success: it always takes work, but you know that the results are worth the effort.
