So I do a lot of running and what I can say is picking it up after a break is the most difficult, but you'll be shocked at how quickly your body adapts to things. My main advice: Take your time - Your respetory fitness will advance faster than your physical fitness, and it can be very easy to push yourself too far and injure yourself (I've done that recently even after doing it regularly for 10 years). Get some decent shoes - Footwear is so important and if you do start picking up serious mileage, decent trainers go a long way. Go to a proper shoe fitting and get ones that work for you. In my case, I run best with Adidas Ultra Boosts but my boyfriend loves On Run shoes. I wore his this weekend and hated them. It's crazy the impact they have. A good playlist goes a long way - Put together one for yourself and use that to get in the zone. Don't forget to stretch - Stretching is boring and I hate it, but it's vital to stopping muscle cramps and improving recovery. A foam roller is great too and they're pretty affordable. Anti-Blister Socks - Blisters are awful and some people (like me) get them more than others. Anti-blister socks make the world of difference, I've gone from having near permanent ones to none from the change. Runderwear have some great ones that aren't too pricey. Track your progress - Strava, Nike etc. all have apps that you can use and it's a helpful way to understand pace, distance and keep a total of how you're doing. I've used the nike one for years and love it. They also have challenges built in e.g. run x distance this month. So that's a helpful way of keeping yourself motivated! Hope it all goes well!!
