>Running 101>Recommended training progs for the new and horribly unfit?
Outside is another story though - concrete pavements are a killer!
Hi everyone, I'm new to the board and new to running. Have spent my entire life convincing myself I'm rubbish at all things physical, but have recently discovered a love for running and am determined to work on it!! Problem is I don't really know where to start without doing myself an injury. I weigh 124lbs, and so far can run 20mins at a comfortable speed on the treadmill. Outside is another story though - concrete pavements are a killer! Can any of you more experienced types recommend a sensible starter programme for someone who intends to get serious about the sport?
I love researching programs for running and different ways of measuring progress.
• running for 1 hour is more beneficial than running twice for 30 mins (it has to do with metabolizing and training your muscles for endurance)

The Logic of Long Distance
JK, you forgot the part about how you have to skip out on the Tom King Half Marathon because it's flat and fast and only run hilly, freezing, wooded courses like the Monkey and Frostbite. You missed a good shot at a PR today.
