Apart from the above advice, any one get any serious advice? In December I have BPFA, and I'm shite at running. So does anyone have any serious advice? Should I be doing say about 20mins each day, to start with? Or should I rest off a day? Assume your starting with someone who can't run at all. I'm currently doing about 20 mins a day just to get used to running, is this two much to fast? NOTE: yes I know you old buggers all had to do 1.5 miles in under 10 seconds, and on your belly, propeled by only your nob.. and all that, and us modern recruits just can't cut it etc.
