Well done for starting, you won’t regret it. Do remember to leave a rest day between runs though.

Congratulations on starting!

Remember about rest days between your runs - they are as important as runs or even more.

Happy running journey!

Also started yesterday and so wanted to have another go today, but following all advice about rest days.

So here's to tomorrow and Sunday 😃

Well done for starting. I would echo the advice you have already received, make sure you have rest days. It's easy to become elated and want to do it again soon but hold back, let your muscles rest and recover or as Old Floss says, it's the sure way to the injury couch. Be sure to let us know how you get on :)
