Decided to stick to a stable routine, start small and be consistent rather than do too much too soon and then get injured/too sore.Did my first run in years yesterday night.
Ran 3.2km in just above 21:30
It felt alright, definitely not as knackered as I thought I'd be. I made an effort to warm up properly before taking off and most importantly did 5 minutes of stretching afterwards.
Looking forward to improving my level of fitness
I wish it was this easy. They're almost equally important to me ("almost" meaning the powerlifting is more important than the running ) so I kinda want to do bothEasy, forget the gym and go for another run instead.
Ha ha judging by the amount of pain, the gain must have been remarkableNo pain.... no gain !
Fingers crossed for that. I worked pretty hard to break 500lbs on deadlift.For a couple of years the only exercise that I did was lifting weights, then I started running, but there was no way I could give 100% to both of them, squats had to drop back but I could still keep up the deadlifts.

Anyway yes, I know it's impossible to give 100% to both, especially with other life commitments getting in the way of training. I just started juggling with 4 activities (powerlifting and triathlon) so I guess I just have to experiment and learn from mistakes until I get to the point where I can get decent progress in all of them. It's going to be a busy year
