it is ok that you lost a lot of fitness. You knew what you got into. Now there is nothing stopping you though from getting it back.
Yeah of course you are even slower now numbnut. What did you think would happen? There is no magic VO2max fairy that comes visiting at night and sprinkels fitness on you. So get your shit together and get that ego to shut up and just take one freaking step after the other!
Like the 10k today. That was a good start. Shuffeling through the park …
round and round you slogged.
Visiting old friends with a new friend on top!
Pretending to admire the fauna to catch a breath.
Pros call hat interval training!
Just keep doing that and you’ll see it will get easier.
