Hi. You can't just start running. Need to prepare your body for that. Warm up exercise should be done. You'll need to strengthen your leg n calf muscle.

Hi, I recommend you to change your running shoes every 3 months to provide shock absorption to your joints. You need to strengthen your knee muscles with gym program mainly concentrate on quadriceps, hamstring and calf muscles which is very important for running. Before and after running try to do stretches. Its very important to prevent muscle injuries.
