I've been running for years. Even so, I have spells where I take a break for a variety of reasons. During that time I lose endurance and have to start rebuilding. One of my favorite techniques is to set up a running distance that I can't quite accomplish. Say, a 2 mile course. I'll run as far as I can then walk the rest. Then each time I go out I push it a little harder until I can run the whole distance. Once that's under the belt, I'll set a new longer course.
Thank you and it's great to be back and i am focused more than ever now. Time off was time well spent, now i am going to go the final journey.

I am excited about running, already i feel very good at doing my limited amount. I just need to take it slow and let my knees adjust this time. Hoping by January i can start to push the limits a bit.

I will keep posting and let everyone feel my pain and triumphs along the way
