Have you decided that this winter will be your season to pound the pavement? Haven’t run since high school? No sweat and worries we’ve got you covered with an easy to follow plan.

Just a small tip to ensure this plan works: Do all walking and running at an intensity level that feels challenging but comfortable to you.
