Today was the big day, the restart of my marathon training program. I put on my running clothes. I used my inhaler. I got the correct cadence in my head for Chi running (180bpm). Then I went outside....and made it to the end of the cul-de-sac before I ran out of breath.
So I am definitely out of shape. I walked/jogged around the block, about 3/4 of a mile. I walked up the big hill, and tried to jog in place whenever I needed a break (every few yards). My cadence was fine, but I know I didn't have the lean right. And I can't believe how out of shape I am:(
But it was a start. And the good news is that my hamstrings didn't hurt. I didn't do them any further damage that I could tell. Admittedly, I didn't do much running, either, but hey, it's a start!
