Getting back to running…

So I need a plan for my return to running, but it’s still hitting 104 here. Yuck! I might have to start with some undesirable dreadmill jogs to get back into it.

My weight is now down to the 111 range. So that’s a total of 12lbs lost to date. Basically the biggest concern about the return to running is my ability to keep my weight up. It takes everything I have to stay at the weight I’m at today. Doesn’t sound like a lot of food on paper, but it’s taking constant effort to be where I am. But I need to get back at it because my leg muscles are dwindling sadly away; this exercise hiatus can’t be good for my health.

So my B12 was high, my iron was good and my prealumin (indicative of long-term protein stores) was low. So I just need to incorporate more protein into my diet. I had cut out the protein shake a while back because it was tearing up my gut a little. I’ll have to try again and see how it goes.

And other than that, I’ll need to go buy pants one size smaller. Now my old ones are too loose. So that’s all my random thoughts for today.
