    It depends on what your goals are and the pace and time at which you run.  If your goal is weight loss, running as fast as you can for 30 seconds followed by 1 minute walking/slow jogging and repeating for 15-20 minutes would help you reach that goal.  If your goal is to be able to run long distances, then the only way to train for that is slowly build up the distance you can run each day.  For instance: day one: jog a half of a mile, day two jog a mile, day 3 jog a mile and a half, day 4 jog a mile, day 5 jog a mile and a half, day 6 jog a 2 miles.  Follow that progression, and assuming your nutrition is good, you'll be up to half marathon distances within 3 months.  Also, I always recommend that people use some sort of resistance training, either with bands or dumbbells, in order to preserve muscle mass.

    Hermfry covers it all pretty well so I would just add that running also gets you from one place to another, faster. LOL. Blessings, JR

    Running enhances your body in different ways.

    Endurance running, naturally, increases your stamina and forces you to learn to breathe in a batter manner. It also helps to tone the muscles in your arms and legs, as well as other places on your body. It's a full cardio workout.

    Sprinting does very much the same but also enhances your speed capabilities and your form.

    Running has many physical benefits as have been outlined here, but it also has many mental benefits as well.   It helps to build confidence, co-ordination, stress relief, and endorphin release puts you in a great mood for the rest of the day. So all in all, it can really help to balance out and improve in many areas of your life. Cheers
