For anyone that is tempted to start running I would say just go for it, but start much slowly than you ever could imagine!

Now when I think back, I tried to run too fast and too long too early.

Training plan something like this would have been much better to start with, but I was too impatient.

Mix running and walking (I still mix, allthough I can run longer time straight, because it’s better exercise that way). Walking parts should be brisk enough.

Easy Walk-Run Training Plan

Try to have 3-4 around 30 minutes walk-runs every week

Week 1: 2 minutes running/4 minutes walking
Week 2: 3 minutes running/3 minutes walking
Week 3: 4 minutes running/2 minutes walking
Week 4: 5 minutes running/3 minutes walking
Week 5: 7 minutes running/3 minutes walking
Week 6: 8 minutes running/2 minutes walking
Week 7: 9 minutes running/1 minute walking
Week 8: 13 minutes running/2 minutes walking
Week 9: 14 minutes running/1 minute walking

Now you can run 30 minutes without stopping! Great!
