When as a runner should I enter my first race?

The amount of preparation that you’ll need depends on your fitness levels, your goals and your training history. Of course everybody is different, but if you are new to running you’ll probably need around 8-10 weeks of running 2-3 times a week before you feel ready to tackle a 5k. The longer the distance, the more preparation is required. If you are targeting a half marathon for example it would be prudent to have around 6 months of training under your belt.

I am finding it really difficult to keep running, finding I want to stop during my run. Is this normal and how can I change it?
