Back to Basics

I've made it a goal to get back into running, but it's been a little defeating to see that my endurance is 12% of what it used to be. I found myself jumping back into 3 milers expecting them to be easy, but after 2 miles I'm beat. After thinking about it, I remembered that when I was seriously into running back in 2013, all I did were 1 mile runs 3-4 times a week, and after a couple of months it turned into running 5 miles without stopping.

Keeping that in mind, I set out after work on Friday with just a short run in mind. I just did a short 1.2 mile jog, and even though I was only out for about 15 minutes, it still felt SO good to be back outside and running. I think taking it easy and building my base back up will help me to actually enjoy running again instead of feeling like it's a chore :)

Saturday was my first day off of work/school in awhile, so I had a great workout planned, but my body/mind were totally exhausted so it was a much needed rest day. Instead of working out, I spent time with my family, watched Twilight, and went out for a froyo date with the boy :)

Toasted marshmallow, chocolate, strawberries, candy bits, and hot fudge is what dreams are made of ;)

How do you come back to running after taking awhile off? 
I could use some more tips ;)

What's your favorite froyo combination?!
