If I may be so bold, as I was once in your position and now have dealings with a fair number of beginners.

Most people when starting off running, even walk-running, start off way to fast, without realising it. they are also scared of running on anything that isn't tarmac.

If you're starting back, find a gentle off-road surface, which will slow you down and be easier on the legs. And keep the pace down to something really gentle.

Thanks DeeGee :) I know that previously I was running on just concrete and was probably going too fast - I'm physically fairly fit so it didn't feel hard, although I certainly paid for it!

I'm now just running on soft grass surface and am trying to go at a real plod, until my legs acclimatise.

Got something to say?
