That’s very inspiring. My first 5k was 38 mins too. I am down to 30 now but even 25 looks like a distant dream for me.

I’m not going to pretend to be a doctor, so it might be a good idea to go see one if it’s seriously inhibiting you. Though, on very strenuous runs, especially up hills, my calves will get extremely tight, almost to the point that I think they’re going to tear. I’ve come to realize this in particular, is all part of the process of gaining more muscle in my legs.

I’m doing my first ever 5K tonight (if weather cooperates..storming here this afternoon). It’s a “pi/pie” run at a local food festival. It’s an un-timed event, which for me, is perfect for a first 5K. My goal is to 1) have fun and 2) to finish, even if it means that I still have to walk a bit. For a first 5K, I have to tell myself there’s no shame in walking if needed, because I will have future 5ks where I WILL be able to run the whole thing.

That’s great progress! Keep working at it.

Sorry I took 5 days to reply. But, honestly? I just run 6 days a week. Mondays and Wednesdays I go run about 5-8 miles (what ever I feel up for). On Tuesdays, I work on speed, doing 800 meters at a time, I’ll usually run about six of these, each one being faster than the last. I do the same thing on Thursdays, though, doing about four 1200 meter repeats. On Fridays, I relax, with a 30 minute run through trails in the woods. And on Saturdays, I wake up early and run 10-12 miles. :3

Yes. You can do this, but you might want to take it easy in the middle days. I suggest a longer run the first day your back, shorter easier runs in the middle, and a longer run the day before you take a few days off. Lifting weights is a great idea on the days you aren’t running.

Hey man great video. I’m currently doing the c25k program and loving it. My question is this: I work 3 12-hr shifts a week at a hospital and I don’t like running on work days so I’ve been doing my running on my days off back to back to back and using work days to just lift weights and do push-ups etc. do you think running 3-4 days in a row is as good as running every other day?

Your in Wisconsin cool

Will there be security at 5Ks from now on?
By CandleAndSoapAddict, October 18, 2013 @ 5:06 am
Great vid with very helpful tips. I’m interested in doing a 5k myself but have been told repeatedly that no matter how much I train it will not be an easy task because of my built. I am 5′4″ of average weight 140 but I am very top heavy. Because of my endowments would you say that running as a form of exercise would do me more harm in terms of my back and shoulders along with my knees than good in the end?
