Thanks so much for the input. It is good to hear it comes back quick. I was hoping so. I missed some runs during the holidays and wound up back to run/walking last two weeks. Then I got sick the first week of January and haven't been strong enough to run yet. I'm not patient with illness unfortuntely. My husband keeps reassuring me I'll be back to running again soon! I will try to be more appreciative of my running health this go round! : )

When I got back to running after I had my son, I started with shorter distances and walked a lot. You'll be surprised how quickly you get back into it, but don't worry about how slow you are, that can get depressing. Just concentrate on either time or distance (say running 3 miles, or running for 30 minutes).

I think it's more mentally hard to come back after being laid off. You feel like you should be running more/faster. Give yourself at LEAST the amount of time you were off to get back up to par. If you've been off for a month, it'll probably take you about a month to regain that fitness (give or take). And just remember that you run because you LOVE IT!

I wish I knew the answer to help you. I am facing the since question. I have not ran since the first of Dec. I have found it hard to get started back even through I miss it so much.

Where do you start after you've been pretty sick. I am no longer sick but very weak. I was running three miles three times a week and know I will not be able to do that anytime soon. Where do you back up to when you feel like you can start moving again?
