Run before you walk NO NO!

DON'T START AN EXERCISE PROGRAM AT A LEVEL THAT IS TOO ADVANCED!

If you want to run, consider walking and cycling first. Both will build your aerobic base without the impact and stress of running, you can gradually incorporate running in and increase the amount. Slowly build your aerobic base, if you're monitoring heart rate stay at 65%-70% of your maximum heart rate* while increasing and let your body learn to work harder without increasing heart rate. (Easy wasy to estimate your maximum heart rate is 220-age).
