Running help please...

OK..I am a 24 yo female. I am in the Air force reserves. I am needing some real help with running. WHile in basic I had a hard time with it but I was doing it all the time. I finally was able to do 1.5 miles in 12:20. WEll, now that I am not doing it all the tiem like in basic I can't seem to do it at all. I feel out of breath very quickly. My heart seems to be beating to fast. And my legs get to the point where I am in pain...Can someone give me some advice please.. THanks

Re: Running help please...

Work up to your goal using intervals. Meaning walk for a couple minutes, run for five, walk for 2, run for five (or however long you can run without killing yourself). By continuously increasing the amount of time that you are running in each session, and whittling away at the walking intervals, you are building your endurance without working too hard. You'll be running for a solid hour before you know it.
Keep your body lean, your blood clean and your mind sharp. -Rollins

Re: Running help please...

Thanks for that advice. I think part of the problem is I focus so much on 1.5 miles and how long it takes to pass a pt test.
