I agree.

Start with what you feel comfortable with and gradually increase. The key is to maintain a schedule of running at least every other day. Coming back after more than 3-4 days off will seem like undoing several days of running and starting back over.

Also, listen to your body. If a joint or muscle gives you pain, slow down and let it cool down before continuing. If something begins to hurt immediately after you commence running, go home and don't run for 1-2 days. Many problems will work out themselves if you gradually build up and don't stress a potential weak spot.

I use airmax 2010s and they are great for absorbing road. If you're running on roads, pay attention to how much impact your knees are taking.

удачи!
