Sorry if there's already a thread dicussing this sort of thing.
Ive very recently started running 5k (12.5 laps of an athletics track), probably doing it about 3-5 times a week.
My first time was 33.04, (bear in mind im 28yrs old, probably bout 2 stone overweight). Ive now manged to get my times down to around 29.00 consistantly..
Is that any good?
I dont know if im doing things correctly, im just basically pushing myself every time, to get better, giving myself reasonable goals. And it seems to be working as im very rarely out of breathe. The only thing that i HATE is my legs ache! and they feel extremely heavy. This is the only thing stopping me from probably knocking a few minutes off that time.
How could i prevent this, is it footwear? over-running?
