>Try getting a heart rate monitor.  I loaned mine to my wife

when she started running a couple of weeks ago.  When she first
started she could not run continuously; she had to stop after a
very short distance.  With the heart rate monitor she was able to
get on the right track and she now runs about 3.5 miles at a time
at 10min. pace.

To start figure the minimum and maximum beats per minute for your training
zone.  Run until you exceed the maximum rate and then walk until you fall
below the minimum.  After a short while you will find yourself able to run
without leaving your zone.
