    I am a new runner for the second time. I got injured and had to take 6 months off (plus then it took 2 months to hype myself back into running) so I am starting right from the beginning.

    I don’t follow a training programme. I have had a look at a few and I suppose I make my own rules as I go along. My reason for that is that I am a perfectionist, and if I don’t follow the programme to the letter I beat myself up about it. So I try to run 2-3 times per week doing walk/run intervals, pushing myself a little further or faster each time. It works for me!

      Isn’t it hard to get back after an injury? I am still so nervous of “re-injury” that every ache and pain makes me slow down or take a break. 🙁
