Signed up for the Business Run competition in April. Lots of companies competing in a 5k run. It's in April. On one hand, I can't wait, but on the other, I haven't even started training.

5 km is perfectly doable in 2 months m8, just be sure to

1: have good/get good shoes and don't fuck up your knees (like i did)
2: have a proper run scedule up to 6 km (instead of 5)
3: practice your dabbing in front of the ladies when you cross the finish line

Thanks for the advice (point 2 I completely missed)!

As far as training goes, just need to break through the fatigue, so to say. Let's say after 2 km I get tired and have to stop. If I stop, the progress is slow. But if I push through it and run more (you always can), then the progress is faster.

try slowing down instead of full stopping. as in, slow your pass/tempo but try to keep (awkwardly slow) running if you can.

Going back to the gym regularly is just incredible, in terms of how good it makes you feel. Connecting your mind back into your skeleton, muscles and awakening it every day is a complete game changer for energy and mental health. And of course watching it transform is very satisfying (not that I have any great muscles). It changes your life.

Its been about 1.5 years since I went, but so glad im back. I wanted to start months before, but when you are out of the loop the idea feels so unappealing, I literally had 0 motivation to go, even though I wanted to go so badly and get strong again. After 2 weeks of going every morning I had no problem with going, after 4-6 weeks I look forward to it and now after 2+ months it is one of the highlights of my day. All you have to do is get the first 2/3 weeks out the way. Even if you train for just 20 mins casually that's fine. Its the habit of turning up that builds (quickly) and then its easy.

Yoo my first week back after a long pause since September or so. Can't say it feels great since I am numb from getting up so early, but it does feel nice to do something great for yourself. I am not even enjoying the grind as I usually do, I'm just doing it. Once I get my sleeping habits in order, it will surely be better.

The protein though... My stomach doesn't seem to like it.
