Went for my first run in a few years last night, felt really good. I've tried to get into running probably half a dozen times over the last few years, but I thinking I'm going out way too hard and too far, then I end up being sore for days and not really seeing any improvement because I'm too beat up to train regularly.
So, what are some good plans for a beginner to ramp up training? 5-6km seems like a pretty good distance for me to start. Maybe one of those "X minutes running, X minutes walk, repeat" plans would force me to slow down and not burn out. Or better by distance?
I really hate clock-watching while I exercise though, can running watches like the Ambit or Forerunner be set up to beep at you every X minutes?
Thanks for any tips/links
