Nervous

Starting out again after 7yrs off, stopped after I ran the GNR ?. I still have the trainers, can I still use them or buy new??. My shift patterns are different everyday does it really matter what time of day I run and how long after I eat should I run. I've forgotten everything I learned and it's all new again. Are there any good apps to help. Thanks for reading.

trainers should be fine as long as they were not completely worn out when you stopped, doesn't matter what time of day you run, i leave 2 hours after eating as i get a stitch otherwise but everyone is different, best advice follow a couch to 5k plan do it slowly and properly to avoid injury
good luck

old trainers should be OK for the time being.
whatever time of the day suits you (and makes you feel good)! Some of us are morning/pre-breakfast runners, some do it in the evenings, some during work lunch breaks.. like Alison mentioned, I also give myself at least 2h but it's usually way more. I have my lunch at around 1pm and go running at 6pm-ish, not having eaten anything in between, perhaps some snack only

Well, yes, it's Running v2.0 now in 2017 but I can assure you it hasn't changed much from Running v1.2 when you left. Just put on your shoes and off you go.. and enjoy

Depends what your goals are? Preparing for some race eventually? Some people use C25K

Good luck! and welcome back to the world of running..

Go out and have fun, I have different shifts although its dayshift week/backshift week the times vary and I just run whenever suits. Try to save my long runs for days off though.

Enjoy and take it easy

Ran at 9pm covered in reflective bands and my partner who started with me had a head torch as we live in a very rural area but well worth it as I'm more awake at night but work 14hr shifts

Wow, 14 hrs! I would never be able to cope with that. Good to hear your run went ok; do you have nice routes through trees/away from roads or do you prefer to be on a reliable tarmac surface at night?

Regarding the number of rest days, I would say try one day and see if it is enough- if you find subsequent sessions are harder rather than easier, you could add an extra rest day. Having said that, I think one day off is pretty standard and should allow you to recover whilst getting your body used to regular running (as long as you are getting a good night/day's sleep in between runs).
