Hi there, 

I'm 38, from Portugal, and entered 2017 focusing on making some changes to my life.

I hated running because I always felt I lack the endurance to run. Now I look back and I see that I was missing the experience, some guidance and discipline to work out properly.

I have been reading a lot about running and I started running/walking since New Year. I have been losing some weight and right now I'm able to run/walk 5k within 40min. I haven't tried to do a 5k non-stop and I do my workout in the woods, which means mostly rough ground and different elevations.

What should I do next? Should I continue to increase my running time and distance or do I start to work on speed and a better time for a 5k?

Thank you all! :)

It depends what is your goal. You can go for 10K distance (more endurance) or increase your agility for the 5K distance.

I would suggest to complete c25K starting may be from week 4 or 5.


To be honest, right now my main goal is to find the strengh to keep going. That's one of the reasons I searched for a running forum and decided to sign in through the app.

I am happy to see the results so far.

I will follow your advice and go through the app to complete the 5k non-stop and then maybe start training to improve my time.

Thank you Torus_ot!
