    @JoeBlade Any improvement? If not and I know it's not the best time for it - probably one for the GP.

    Shame about my knees, though. That's the hardest bit of it by far.
    Have you tried strength training your legs? Might help with the knees.

    I have similar issues. This may help you.

    First run for a few weeks and considerable weight gain, could just manage 4.5m at a pace of 11.24 including walking a couple of times at the end of the hills (there are always bastard hills on my routes). I've never been a fast runner but Holy Shit. Depressing but good to get back out there.

    Some chap I work with in his 50s that runs marathons told me not to worry about pace when you start back at it. Reckons the quickest way to get fit is longer runs at a slower pace which makes sense to me

    I've done just over 90 miles total since I started back running in mid April and it's not been easy at all. I buy myself a little reward every 50 miles so not far off my second :)

    I'm not too pissed about it, it was still 11.24/mile quicker than sitting on me sofa! :)
