Is it safe to run a mile if I haven’t ran one in years or should I gradually lead up to it?

    How old are you? Are you in good condition? How s your current health? Do you currently have an injury?

    It should be safe for most people who are in good health. Depending on how hard you run, you might not be able to run the whole mile without slowing to a walk at times. But, you can get through the whole mile.

    If you plan on starting a running program, to increase safety, you might want to follow the Noakes beginniner s program, or something similar. There is a copy near the bottom of the page at http://www.runner.co.za/2003/01/05/training-for-be... .

    run easy if you need to stop and walk then walk until you feel like running again, that is how you get back into shape.

    you should start out by pacing yourself and working your way up to that mile

    It's not unsafe. You'll figure out if you're capable of it right now, or not. If you can't run the whole way, then don't. You can always work up to it if you need to (if you desire to begin running regularly).

    Go for it. Your body will tell you along the way if it's not a good idea to keep going.
