Basically, you need to start running for 20 minutes a day 3 times a week. I run 10k in 40 minutes and 5k in 21 minutes. So start at 20 minutes for 3 times a week and increase the duration by 5 minutes each week till you hit 40 minutes of running. However, you shouldn't just continuously run, interval training is good so like run 1k rest for 3 minutes x 5 reps which is a good start. Then when becomes easier start o increase distance and reps. Breathe through your nose. Use your arms in a swinging motion at...

I'm speaking from personal experience....... About four years back I couldn't run 100 meters....,. Today I run 5 km in about 37 minutes....... More than distance, speed...... Regularity towards exercise is what helps........ Listen to your body...... There are days my body refuses to walk 10 steps....I laze around ...... Happy running

Thanks, Mark and Sri.
And How about moving the arms

For me, it depends on what goal you want to set, for beginners try to start with 10 min runs n then each week increase 10 mins.. after you get to about the 50 min mark, I always start adding in distance instead of time..

As for moving your arms, I was always told, keep them relax and loose.. try to move them up and down, not flailing around your body as if you were being chased

If you're completely new, start with 2min walking, 1 min slow running... repeat this for 20-30 minutes. Listen to your body. Rest one day and go on, slowly increasing the running part.

Make sure to start slow - most run too fast in the beginning. Run slow and increase time of running until you are able to run without a break for 30-45 minutes. Then you can increase speed.

Take time to rest. Just run every 2nd day and if your muscles are hurting, wait one more day. Your body gives all the answers you need.
