It is amazing how quickly you revert back when you quit working out. Although, I am finding myself wanting to push myself and get back to where I was before I gave up on fitness, I also keep reminding myself to take it slow so I don't hurt myself or overdo and burn out. I just walked a half mile (was up to two miles before I quite on myself) and felt like I could do more, but stopped myself. Still in the first week and want to work back into it slowly so I don't end up hurting my hip like I did the first go round (sciatic nerve issues). I know that I can work up to more, but need to take it slow. I am an all or nothing personality, so taking it easy is quite a task for me. I plan on doing a half mile for the rest of the week and then stepping up to 3/4 of a mile. Does this sound like a solid plan or am I still pushing too fast??
