Until about 4 years ago I used to run, well jog really, approx 5K most days before work and 10K at the weekends. I then got a puppy thinking she could/would come with me but that was not successful, (she got too distracted). So the time I used to spend running was then given over to dog-walking and I let the running slip into non-existance.
However, I now have a little more time on my hands andI am overweight. I am dieting to combat the weight gain but also want to get running again as it not only helps with the calorie burn and general toning but the daily runs gave me such a psychological 'lift' that I'm sure it would keep me on track (if you'll pardon the pun!)
Having decided to run again I want the most effective method back to fitness and this is where you come in. I know I'll need to walk/run and build up but which do you consider the most beneficial until I can do the whole thing without walking : A) Going out for a set time or Going out for a set distance.
