I started serious exercise some years ago after being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and diverticulitus in the same week- control for both is diet and exercise, so I lost some 35 kilos and started going to a free, local council-run program called "Fitness in the Park. https://www.liveclarence.com.au/about/healthy/moving-well/fitness-in-the-park/ After a few years I started running to supplement fitness in the park- now I mainly do middle-distance running, supplemented by fitness in the park. My main distances are 5 and 10k, with the occasional half-marathon to stop me getting complacent.
Three years ago my step-daughter introduced me to ParkRun, https://www.parkrun.com.au/, a worldwide, free, timed, non-competitive, weekly 5k run/walk/jog.
Note that some of the times are around an hour- these are when I volunteer as Tailwalker, whose job is to carry a first aid kit, act as a "sweeper"and take care of any injuries or other problems on the run.
