After a four-month hiatus, I’ve returned to my local gym and not a moment too soon. Talk about being out of shape–well, I do a lot of walking here, a couple of miles a day–but back on the running machine and step master again I had to start out slow (with plenty of stretching before and after) to avoid injury. And Yoga–lots of Yoga has helped a lot.
Last year at this time I was running 10 kilometers in an hour. Today I got back up to 4 kilometers or 2.4 miles in 30 minutes. That’s still pretty good for a 52-year-old but I do want to get back up to 10 kilometers again.
I also need to get my weight back down again. Put on a few extra pounds this year, but as was the case the other times I worked out, in a few weeks I was able to lose all the weight I put on.
