Back to being a beginner runner... again !

Yep, that's right, I am back to the beginning again. The injuries kept creeping back (I hurt my knee in January and just started running again a few days ago) and keeping me from running so I lost all stamina and I am back to running 1 mile at a time. It's annoying and it made me give up both the half and the full Paris marathon, but at least now I do not have to push myself too hard to get the mileage in. I will run my 1 milers until I feel really comfortable (which is not the case right now, it's tough on my legs and lungs), then increase to 1.5 miles then 2 and slowly build back to where I was. This time I really want to take my sweet time and make sure I don't overtrain. Right now I am struggling during the runs, but I have the memory of how running felt good after a while and that keeps me really motivated !...
