I am a complete beginner at running but I want to get better at it because I want to run an ultramarathon in a few years. I have been taking part in weekly local 5km parkruns for about 4 weeks now and have been averaging a time of 30 minutes. My Personal Best was 29 minutes 28 seconds.
Here are the numbers:
AverageTime: 30 minutes
Body fat %: About 35%
Not a smoker, not a drinker, *I only drink water and nothing else*. However, I love sugary and fatty foods and eat plenty of it....I am very unhealthy.
Taking the above figures into account, is my 30minute 5km time good?
Are there any beginner tips you would give me? How should I improve my 5km running time?
