This 6-Week beginner running one mile program is designed as a pre-requisite to the Beginner: 5K program. Running is a great way to lose weight, improve cardiovascular health, and gain muscular endurance. However, running is also a high impact activity which can be hard on your body, especially if you try to do too much too soon.

It is best to start out slow and build your way up in a running program at a pace that allows you to reach your goal distance and time without injuring yourself. The beginner running one mile program does just this and will help you to train yourself to be able to run a full mile without having to stop and walk. It will begin with small spurts of running followed by walking and build you up to running longer distances until you are up to a full mile.

Upon beginning beginner running one mile program you should be able to walk non-stop for 20-30 minutes at a time. Your focus during this program will be to jog the full distances designated each day, not worrying about your speed. A very slow jog is all you need to be able to do to get started.

Once you are able to achieve the one-mile distance at a slow jog, you will be able to concentrate a bit more on building your speed. For this program though, the primary goal is achieving the one-mile distance without walking.
