I am 53 and am thinking of running again.. I ran a few years ago for about a month but i ended up hurting my Achillies and i then stopped. When i started i started with approx 3k and i thing it was too much too soon. Can anyone give me tips on what is the best time length or distance to start with ... Any First time tips to help would be greatly appreciated. Im thinking about 3 times a week just for about 20 minutes a time. Is this wise... My aim is to loose about a stone and a half. If it helps i am 5"4' and currently 11 st 9 ilbs and the aim is a flat tummy and 10.5 stone..
Cheers for the tips every one..
