THANKS for sharing this info!!! This is why getting in just a few days each week can help us all stay on track through the busy holidays. You may still lose a little endurance, but you don't end up back at square one.

HAPPY RUNNING!

Here's a very interesting article with the answer to that:

"Put simply, he found that you gain more weight when you stop exercising than you lose when you subsequently resume the identical exercise program."

"One pattern that emerges is that people who have taken up exercise relatively recently lose their fitness quite quickly; by many measures, they're most of the way back to their sedentary selves within a few weeks. Those who have been exercising for a long time, on the other hand, have structural adaptations like a larger heart and more capillaries to take oxygen to their muscles, which will endure for several months."

If it is to be, it is up to me.

The only thing standing between me and quitting is my next run.
