    So, having been told to pack a sleeping bag and be prepared to sleep over at work tonight (?!?

The importance thing to do as a beginner is not to want to do too much too soon, or you will soon find it too hard and then you'll give up. Try and set yourself a target of how many runs a week you can do (3 is good for a 10k), then pencil those sessions in your diary so that you have no excuse to miss them... When I started running in 2011 and did my first 10k 3 month later, I was following the Nike 10k program, and I was don g all my runs on a treadmill at home while my little girl was asleep. I had a focus and my first race went very well. I have never stopped since and now I'm training for my first marathon. Good luck!' added 19th Jan 2013
