Take it easy!
Don't run too far just yet. Keep doing 500 meter runs this week, unless you feel you have it in you to run farther. If you haven't been running before, your body, heart and muscles may need some time to adjust. So if you're not used to working out all that much, don't dorry about distances or how far other people are running. So far, your only competition is your old self. Take it little by little. The goal here is to get you running 5k effortlessly within 6 months. There's no rush, though I'm sure many of you will reach that goal way before that, perhaps even by Christmas.
