First Run and the "End the off season test".
Went to my local trail for a 30 minute easy run today. I'm slowly coming back into structure after being off since October 7th. My body has definitely become use to being a worthless sack of $h*t who annoys his wife. With work being very slow, I pretty much stay in the same position all day long. Once I hear the garage door open, i sprint to my computer and ohhh and ahh about how much work I have done :) It's not that bad, but still pretty bad.
One might wonder, when do I know when to come back into structure after my break? Great question and I have the answer. I call it, "The Test".
For the fellas, take off your shirt and go stand in front of a mirror. There are two steps to this test.
Step 1: If looking into the mirror and you clearly have man boobs, you are in need of training now! Not only do you find yourself repulsive, so does your wife. Now, if man boobs are not visible, head to step 2.
Step 2: Follow house of pain's lyrics and jump around. If your breasts also jump around, it is time to ditch your food of choice (white chocolate and licorice of all-sorts) and start slowly adding training back into the daily routine.
I was at step 2 and started adding one of the three disciplines into my daily routine.
