Boston marathon and my falters

Today I started working out after the new gym after a huge gap of 4 months. There were the in between runs and marathons but nothing consistent. To add to it all the vacation time I binged.  I thought I would do Ok and 4 months wouldn’t have made a difference but boy was I in for a surprise. I felt dizzy and weak after 20 minutes of the circuit, serious enough for the disappointed trainer asking me to finish the workout with a couple of crunches. Don’t know what it was, the no pre workout snack (just a small banana) or the exertion, I felt like sh*@. The disappointment was worse when it hit me, wondering and self doubting my conviction of whether I would ever be healthy. I cursed myself for all the inertia of the past four months .How could I do this , and while I gobbled the breakfast sandwich I told myself , I should say goodbye to running the Boston marathon. Until this video hit me like a bullet train.
