Well I've taken on a bit of a challenge to do a 10k for charity I doubt I'd be able to run the whole way but I reckon I can walk / run it at least.
Not completely a couch potato as I play squash once a week, (hence not a stranger to short sprints round the court). However not so great at distance running never appealed to me at school and secondary PE hardly taught you how to improve or teach you techniques.
So far been walking at a brisk pace 5km in a time of around 40 - 45 mins. Just need to get out there and put some jogging km in the legs and found this C25K through internet search which looks like a sensible, steady and progressive plan.
So here goes, wish me luck
