Each week we're going to publish a suggested training schedule that should allow novice runners to achieve that distance. Please take care if you're training for a run for the first time and do not push yourself too hard.
Always walk 5 minutes slow and easy to warm up before each session and again to cool down after each session (this is included in the session times):
Session 1 - 38 min. Run 2 minutes. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 7 times.
Session 2 - 31 min. Run 1 minute. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 7 times.
Session 3 - 34 min. Run 2 minutes. Walk 2 minutes. Do this 6 times.
There you have it. Nice and gentle to start with; do try and enjoy it!
