 A Few Minutes Each Week

Each session should take about 20 or 30 minutes, three times a week that includes a warm up and stretching routine at the beginning and then stretching and light jogging at the end.

Be sure to space out these three days throughout the week to give yourself a chance to rest and recover between efforts.

Don't worry about how fast you're going. Focus on gradually increasing the time or distance you run.

Run for time or run for distance

Measure your runs by time or by distance. Either one works just as well, choose the option that seems easiest for you to keep track of.

 If you go with the distance option and you are not using a track to measure the distances, just estimate. It's not important to have the distances absolutely exact.

Change the scenery

At least once a week, find a new, interesting place to run. Check out a local park or neighborhood with sidewalks to do your runs.  Try running on different surfaces, sidewalks, grass, soft trails, or sand.
