well I was able to get out there today for a run/walk. Did an easy 3, pushing my heart rate to 185 then letting it recover to below 135. The challenge wasn't the 185, but the 135. So out of shape but it feels good to be in this much pain. I'm looking forward to getting back in shape...not for anyone else but myself. This truly is rock bottom for me with regards to my health. The good news is there's no physical pain. 5 years ago I start training for my first half marathon. Here we go again.
