1- Know how to run correctly
Most of you think that running is easy by putting on your shoes and hitting the road. Then, you should think of it again. Without knowing the basic of running, you can injure yourself and get more difficulties to achieve your long distance run goal.

2- Set the time
Before setting the time goal, you need to understand your current capability in running. Keep a watch with you while running to see how long you can maintain
.- Now you are ready to set the time. If you can run for 15 minutes, then your goal should be 30 minutes. If you can run for 30 minutes, then your possible goal should be 45 minutes. Do not force your body too hard to achieve high goal in such a short time. Your body need time to adjust and improve
- Keep on walking even though you are extremely exhausted and your feet start to hurt. You can then feel that your endurance is getting much better for a couple of days.
3- Ignore the speed
You can run at your own speed and focus on running a longer distance. Running fast is not a good choice for everyone. It tires you faster and makes you want to give up. My advice is that helping your body get used to running long distance first then you can think about speed later on
4- Supply energy
What did you eat and drink before running? If you are too full or drink a lot of water, you cannot run efficiently.
5- Follow the schedule but do not push yourself too hard
You should follow your running schedule to improve your endurance. In your schedule, please make some time for your body recovery, forming muscles and strengthening them. Do not run every day. You should rest 1 or 2 days per week
6- Walk as needed
When your body gives you a warning that it can not run anymore, you can slow down and walk. Keep on walking until you feel that you can run again. Especially for new runners, by switching running and walking, you can reach your long distance goal.
Then gradually you can increase the time of running and cutting the time of walking every time you hit the road.
Try to sprint 2-3 times every 6-week
Please remember that I can only advice you the right method to run. The person who actually run is you. You can not see the result if you give up. Keep on fighting
