I don't know what I've been scared of, but something has been stopping me from running. And the longer I went without my running routine, the more fear I had... and I became more and more worried that because I haven't been diligently running, when I finally did, it would be hard and I would get discouraged.

Well, I just got back from a short 4-miler and while I was a little more winded than I should have been, it certainly wasn't anything to be scared of.

Running for me is so much a mental game. If I'm having a rough week (as I have this past week), it effects my confidence running so much.

I won't say I'm completely back on the bandwagon, but I at least have one leg on. Hopefully the other leg will hop on tomorrow.

I have the same fear of running if I've taken any sort of break. I don't understand why! And I find it takes me a few consistent runs for the fear to dissipate. I guess the key is to be afraid but do it anyway. Good luck!

I'm glad you are back!! And I'm glad to hear it wasn't as bad as you thought it would be. The fear of starting all over is what keeps me running. :-) I hope to hear more reports from you. I love your stories!
