If you are just starting you should jog one minute then walk at a good pace for 4 minutes, then keep repeating. The next time you go, jog for 90 seconds then walk 3.5 minutes and repeat. Keep increasing the time you run by 30 seconds every time you go until you can run continually. If at any point you can't increase by 30 seconds then just increase it the next time. Once you can run for an hour then try to increase speed.
you should check my profile and email me bud! I'm a chronic runner I run 2-3 hours a day and NO you can't start out going hard! You need to learn HOW to run first and start running maybe a mile a day until you wish to go farther...And slow and steady wins the race bud
Run the way You feel like running. Don't get bogged up on what ppl tell you. You do what pleases you. If you want to run fast do it. You'll feel it tomorrow and so what? I used to read running magazine to books and most will not apply to you as I have. Run in your own pace, fast or slow it don't matter. Listen to your feeling not what all these so called runner tries to tell you.
