I've done various stints at running but never taken it up permanently. I want to get fit now though and can't justify the cost of a gym at the moment.
I've previously completed the London Marathon in 2005 and again in 2010, albeit in very slow times (circa 6hrs) but each time I've dropped out of running and allowed all of my hard work to come to nothing.
This time I want to turn running into a habit rather than it being just about reaching one particular finish line.
I'm currently about 1.5 - 2st overweight, so losing weight is definitely one of my goals.
I'm going to bite the bullet and go buy some new running shoes this afternoon. What training program do you recommend starting with? (I haven't done any proper exercise for over 4 years, but I do a fair bit of walking)
