More time out

It's been a bit under 5 weeks since starting over with running. I'd like to say it's been going well. Certainly sticking to the plan has been the easy part. I've been very good at following a strict walk/easy run plan. However, considering just how easy the plan is, it's not been going well. Today I had full on muscle symptoms like I'd never taken any time off. To be honest it's fair to say the last 2 weeks have been pointing to a lack of recovery. However, with today's session there was no doubt :-/. So that means 8 weeks was not enough. Fair to say that means no more running for 2013. I'll probably double the break and give it a full 16 weeks. Sadly it could also mean I'll soon be saying 'I was a runner once'. C'est la vie, there is nothing more I can do at this point. Back to slow gentle cycling and the waiting game. Enjoy your running as much as you can, you just never know ...........
