It’s a few years now (2012) since we did any serious running, but we plan to build up to at least 5km (3 miles approx) through the autumn. We are following a plan called c25km (couch to 5km), starting with just 1 minute runs, followed by same time walking. It builds up sharply though!
It’s been a while since we last did any real running (2012 when we ran a full 10km race). I like to think we could still manage to run a modest distance, so starting the training very slowly – aim is to build up to 5km over the space of a month or so, and see where we go from there. It’s good to get out in a morning!
