Well I finally stopped thinking about it and got out and did it. This step was hard enough after a 2 year lay off. The even harder bit now is maintaining it??!!
I did some running at School and then the next 20+ years have been a hit and miss affair - mainly miss. My longest stint has been about 2/3 months although there have been many lengthy gaps (years!) in between. A mixture of injuries over the last 12 years and the decision to stop altogether, 2 years ago bring me up to date.
I packed up owing to injury and stayed away "because I'm injured". I've decided to give it another go and see what happens?
Okay for those still awake that was the abridged version of my running life and now I'm here for advice
I've bought the trainers (full price and not the 'on sale' - there's a first) and I've applied to a running club (another first). Yesterday I did a 20 minute jog with 10 minutes of walking either side and am looking forward to my next run.
I've looked at the beginners guide(s) and yet I can't quite find one that applies to me. I don't want to do speed sessions (for now anyway) and I feel I should be able to do more running than walking. Should I just do a 20 minute run(sprinkled with walking) 2-3 times a week for the next few months - see how I go and if I'm still going, look for change?
Comments will be much appreciated
