    I have just joined the gym with the intention of getting into running. I started off today doing 5k which I done via walking mainly with some running thrown in. Do any more experienced runners have any hints or tips to get the most out of it???

    Download a couch to 5k app and stick with it. It really does work x

    I've just started running (I can only run about 5k, I'm no expert) but my main tip is to go slowly. Run at half the speed you want to go in an ideal world. I can go further and get less tired if I take it easy, and the more you run the faster you'll get with time.

    see if you have a parkrun event near you, they are 5k's and have plenty of run/walkers

    I'd love to run outside but I have pins & a plate on my ankle & they don't agree with it!!! I read about an app... Zombies! Run which sounds fun... C25K bored me a bit!!! The zombies on is you listen to your music then your interupted by a zombie attack & you have to run away from them!!!
