Make sure you have the right shoes. There are different sorts depending on how your foot strikes the floor and you may also want to choose a style that suits the terrain - tarmac or off-road. Good shoes will help you run better and help protect your feet/knees from too many aches and pains.

There are lots of running websites which have plans to stick to for all abilities. They usually advise to start by running for a short period, then walking, then running again etc. A good guide is on the Macmillan Race for Life website - that will get you up to 5km.

There is also a MN Runners thread which appears from time to time.

Good luck.
