Ground zero! Good for you.

For the next while, just run.

Get to know your limitations and capabilities by feel.

Run as far as you are comfortable with at a steady pace, see how your body adjusts/reacts - learn from what happens to it.

Add mileage on by feel, add pace by feel...if you are careful with your progression in increasing mileage and pace, you may not need to take days off...but when you come to that decision, remember you recover better by running easy than by resting.

-Hills are your friends.
-Run as strong as you can, as much as you can handle and fit into your life.
-IF and when you plan to race, don't race full out until you have done a long building period and several weeks of faster work.
