Have just completed the 1st 30 min run in week 9 and am really pleased with myself that I have achieved the goal of running for 30 minutes but am less pleased that I am only covering about 3.8 km ie no where near the 5k I need to be able to run in 3 weeks time for the Sports Relief 3 miles. Am I an exceptionally slow runner or is 5K in 30 mins a bit ambitious for a female, 5ft 2, 47 year old, novice runner? At my current speed it will take me about 39 mins to run 5K. Does any one know of any podcasts I can down load to help me keep running for about 40 mins? Thank you.
