I'd like to start jogging/running to help lose a bit of flab. I'm planning to do it on some local trails to keep it interesting, as I bore too easily on paths/roads.
Anyhoo - I can't run for toffee, and never have been. When I've previously tried to do regular running, I've obviously done it all wrong the first or second day out and ended up with legs that are too sore to run again for at least another 5 days. Generally, it's muscular pain down the sides of the front of my shin.
So, any tips for how to sensibly start running without doing more harm than good?
