I am a new runner. I have peaked at running 1.5miles in 30min. 3 times a week. I due elliptical after my run and 2 other dyas during the week for 20-30min. I want to do a 5K in June this year. I walk 1/4 mile then run 1.5 miles then slow down with a 1/4 walk. I struggle with breathing and try to focus on regular breathing. I was wheezing initially, but since I started using an inhaler 1/2 hr prior to the run I feel better. How can I prepare for the 5K. I seem stuck at time trying to add that extra lap. Please help!!!
I think most people on this forum have used C25K to get their start. Honestly, I find it the best and most painless way to reach a 5K goal. I had already began running when I found C25K and I joined at the two week mark because that was about where I was at. If you had already started running find what week you are doing now and put yourself in that week. I seriously recommend finding a thread of runners like yourself who are doing the same week. The motivation and support you get is fantastic.
