Training plan to run 1 mile

I want to start off slow and work my way up to running a 5k. I would like to first get comfortable with 1 mile. Anybody have a training plan for this? I am currently running 1 lap on the treadmill and walking one lap , twice to get to 1 mile. Thanks!

I don't know of any specific plans for one mile, but it sounds like you are on the right track! As you feel more comfortable/confident, you can increase your running time.

I second the C25K program! I only thought I'd run if somebody/thing was chasing me, but C25K makes it easy.

With the coaching of a friend I ran 1 mile today without stopping on 4.5 mph! So exciting!

Isn't it the greatest feeling ever?!! When I started running in August, I was gasping for air at 1/4 mile. I, too, used the C25K trainer app and followed it. Since that day, I have built up my endurance and I have run as far as 6 1/4 miles without stopping. I've run (2) 5K's (with 8 more on the agenda for this year) and I am hoping to participate in the F&W 1/2 Marathon in November. I had *NEVER* run before August so I feel like an example of what can happen if you put your mind to it and keep going. Even a short and slow run is better than not going out at all.

Just remember that road running and treadmill running are two different beasts.

But congrats on the mile! You will get there. My long days are up to 8 miles currently. I still can't believe that I am running that much just over an hour

Congrats to all of you who had started running! The hardest part is running that first mile. In the begining I also could not run an entire mile without stopping and now I can run an entire 5K distance without stopping.

I would suggest using the Jef Galloway method. Jeff is the official trainer for the Run Disney events and he suggests a Walk-Run-Walk-Run method. This may mean walking 2 minutes then running 1 minute walking two minutes, running 1 minute. Or vice verse, Run 2 min, walk 1 min, Run 2 min, etc. As you are just starting out, you can make the time anything you'd like.

Good luck!
