As my new 'dog walking' trainers have a running tag, and as a couple of my friends are graduates of this programme I have decided to give it a go. It's been years since I have properly run so am a little anxious. I've previously suffered plantar fascitis and struggled with knee pain so am hoping I don't have any recurrence. Any tips to avoid this would be great

Welcome to the forum and well done on getting started.

If you had problems in the past then I would suggest that you invest in some proper running shoes fitted after a gait analysis done at a specialist running shop sooner rather than later.
Enjoy your journey.
