I've had to stop running due to an injury that wasn't related to running. When I stopped I was able to do a 3 mile run on a track in 19 minutes and 5 seconds. This was in late July. I'm getting back into it now, and I did a 24 minute 3 mile run.
Will it take as long as I had to train initially to get back to where I was and also can I return to my former weekly mileage at a slower pace or do I need to build back up again?
