When starting a running program, start your first few runs at a casual pace. Set a goal of twenty minutes your first time out.  Don't worry about distance - just keep moving.  Alternate periods of running with walking breaks.  Don't run really fast and then crawl like a snail during your walking.  Try to keep an even effort.

And don't think that walking is cheating.   Walking breaks actually allow you to increase the duration of your workout.  Longer workouts burn more calories and increase your body's physiological response to the workout.  You will soon be able to run non-stop soon enough.  Be Patient!!!

Start with three times a week to start and make the first ones easy.  Running too hard to fast and doing it too often can only bring on an injury and a burn out.
Do it on a gradient.


Feel that walking is a better gradient for you.  Well walking 6000 steps or more a day is the way to better health.  Walking 10000 steps keeps you slim.

There are pedometers by which you can measure how far you walk each day.   If you just make sure you keep it up to the same amount each day and keep increasing that amount, you will enjoy a new level of fitness.   You might even make a grid and find out what your average is each week and then strive to get more each week. We like the LifeStyles DigiwalkerTested by Consumer's Union for accuracy.

The Complete Book of Isometrics: The Anywhere, Anytime Fitness Book

Millions of people can't seem to find the time to exercise. Now they can with The Complete Book of Isometrics. Fitness expert Erin O'Driscoll has compiled the best isometric exercises that can be done in the office, at home watching TV, flying in an airplane, or even driving a car—no equipment required.

Rather than using expensive machines or lugging around a set of dumbbells, you use common objects and your own body's resistance to work out the muscles. Isometric exercises are especially helpful to people recovering from injuries that limit range of motion. A special chapter shows how even people with disabilities can use isometrics to build muscle tone and strength.

Using the secret of resistance, isometrics are the basis for yoga, Pilates, and all the core stabilization techniques that are so popular today. Now, learn the original, simple, and effective way to a complete workout without moving a muscle. 150 photos.
