The ability to run one mile non-stop isn't something to be taken lightly. Some have never been able to run very far without getting overly winded. But with proper training, you can do this and more! The problem most people have is that they start out running way to hard or fast and cannot keep the pace, so jog as slowly as you need to, especially when starting out.|
You do have to be able to walk before you can run. Once you can comfortably walk for one full hour, then you're ready to start running. This program will work at the gym, outside, on the treadmill, or on any running track. Speed is not important—remember to pace yourself to make it through your jogging intervals without getting too tired.
