I have enjoyed jogging on and off for some years now. I love the rhythmic (almost meditative) movement that comes with running and the freedom to let the mind roam.
'Couch to 5K' programmes aim to ease a complete novice into running - up to a level required to run 5 kilometers (or approx. 3 miles). That's equivalent to about 30 minutes of steady running.
There are many
'couch to 5K' programmes available on the Internet. Just google it.
I particularly like this one designed by the NHS. Apart from its staggered running programme (including downloads for mp3) it offers a lot of advice and support.
