Getting Back Out There

Since I have not been able to run the past few days due to weather, I know I will have to take it slow. To make it even worse, I have not even been able to get any walks in this week because it has rained the entire day.  My plan is to get out today and do a 3 mile run and then on Saturday do a 4 mile run. I will take off Sunday do to scheduling.   It is important to go slow.  My legs feel rusty.  It is cold out; it will take longer for them to warm up. I do not want to get injured.   Also the ground may be wet. I do not want to slip.

Then starting the following week, I will most likely do a combo of 4 and 5 mile runs Monday through Thursday.  My goals for the month are still achievable.  While I have only run 4 days for a total of 16 miles this month, with a lot of effort, I can still reach 85 miles over 20 day.  This is important; the 10k I am running in is in early march.    The few day layoffs has hurt more mentally rather than physically.  

What is your plan after a layoff?
