I feel like I am picking up from rock bottom. Overweight, over 50, out of shape. I still think of myself as a runner - but realistically it has been 10 year since I ran seriously, and 2 - 3 years and 30 pounds since I felt fit enough to enjoy running. What I can do now feels so pathetic and uncomfortable compared to how I remember it. I am plagued by thoughts of what I "should" be doing and I am not there. Any words of wisdom? Am I better off switching to a different exercise (swimming, biking, eliptical) where weight and age won't affect me as much? Who has successfully gotten back to running after weight gain? What helped?
