Ran my first 5K in 51:00. Pace of 16:30. I'm old. I'm slow. I lost 80 pounds over the past year so I'm a healthy weight but for all of that, I still don't seem to be able to run easily. I wonder if I'll ever get any faster! Been running since January. I guess 6 months of running doesn't cancel out 40 years of being out of shape. But has anybody been this slow and gotten faster, and if so, how long did it take? How did you do it? Thanks!
