Thank you for your responses! The 5k was this weekend and I finished in just under 35 minutes, which I'm really happy with. I did walk some but held out till after the 2 mile mark because it's harder for me to go back to jogging after I begin walking. I've signed up for another 5k this fall, so I hope to keep up the motivation and maybe improve some by then.
I am on week 7 of the training and I have made a lot of progress. I am happy with how far I've come, but I can still only jog 2 miles or so before feeling very tired (and mostly HOT). I signed up for my very first 5k before starting C25K and it's in a couple of weeks. Should I just do it and jog as much as possible? Should I plan to alternate walking and running, or just jog until I need to walk? It is harder for me to start back jogging after a walk break than it is to just keep jogging very slowly. Any tips or advice?
