If you are unfit, taking up running can be a scary proposition.
But, studies show that regular running can help reduce the risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes and stroke, make you feel good about yourself, and control your weight.
If you are looking for motivation to get fit, why not try the Couch to 5K plan which aims to get you up and running 5k in just 9 weeks!
Its aim is to get you off the couch and gradually get you up to running 5K or more for 30 minutes.
