I've never done any runs before. It's in September. I don't really run currently but I do aerobics and a lot of walking. Has anyone done a run before? How should I start training? Should I jog for say 1 minute, fast walk 3 minutes and keep doing that for a while to build up my ability in the beginning? Cheers

Yes, that's a good start. Do more running each time, until you can run 30min. Should take 4-6 weeks. Then you can increase speed and time step by step. If you need more help, just ask me:)
