When I started, I started with the mindset that my body would tell me what was enough as long as I was honest with myself. I didn't time myself, but rather ran until I couldn't anymore, walked to catch my breath and once I caught up with myself, ran again. I did this in cycles, not worrying about my speed, until I realized that I was suddenly running double that which I started. After I was able to run some distance, I played around with my technique and tried to speed things up a bit. Right now, I'm alternating with walking, running and sprinting and am finding myself becoming faster overall and decreasing my walking time almost without conscious effort. Anyway, that's a thought for you to chew on. Maybe try intervals for speed?

FWIW, RunnersWorld.com is an AWESOME resource and has tons of information for you...
