First ever 5km



First of all im training for a Duathlon in October, never done anything like this before (apart from the odd cycling sportive) so complete newbie. (5km run, 30km cycle, 5km run)


After only one weeks training I ran a 5km on the treadmill today in 18.42. 


Thoughts? Good start i think?

    Thats a brilliant time for a first effort.

    It may be worth running one on a measured course on the road or at a parkrun just to double check that the treadmill is accurate.
  • don't think you've got much to worry about if you can smash a sub 19 on your first effort.


    Kudos sir image

  • there's a local parkrun each saturday so i will do that possibly next week just to see. For now i will start a proper programme. Any advice on what i should be doing?

    Not a bad time thanks, but i was dying at the end, plus then i have to follow that with a 30k cycle and another 5k run....eeek
