Hi I am aware that when we take a break we lose our fitness levels. After the Dundee half I didnt run for 4 weeks. The first time out I could tell I had lost something but now it seems to be coming back better and a lot quicker. It seems to me that although we lose fitness, the fitter we are then the easier it is to get it back again again. Maybe the body remembers the training from before and so adapts quicker than when we first started. Does this sound about right.
