i recently started running again too
my suggestion is to run atleast two miles if possible , as slow as necessary but not walking.
Do that about 10 work out days (take time to get unsore also)
Then run for 30 minutes slow, which should be about 3 miles.
Do that about 15 days . Things will start to be a bit easier after this many workouts.
once you can run all 30 minutes without dying , start trying to speed it up
go back to two miles but run faster like 7 min miles.
I've been doing that for awhile now and I think i might finally be able to keep a whole decent pace for 30 minutes now.
The most important thing when you first start running again is to get into that pace/ rythem your body likes. Some days it won't be as obvious.
You'll know youre in the zone when you can run say part of your jog without even thinking about it like youre walking. The trick is to not think about it!
tommorow is my hill day. Im just gonna turn up the treadmill to ten degrees and keep going until i die. man i used to hate hill days in cross country....death seems easier
