Level 1 Novice

You’re new to running. You’ve never run before (or it’s been a long, long time) and/or you haven’t finished a race. But, you can run for at least 15 minutes on regular runs and up to 30 minutes for a long run. You’ll run 3 days per week in Level 1 plans and can use the Run/Walk method if continuous running seems too daunting.
