Beginner Runner help!
Hi, I'm new to running started in august with C25k and did 4 weeks then joined an online running group which I like much more. C25K was great bc it helped me gain resistance. Now I'm running 4 times a week (starting to run 5 times a week, next week) and 45 minutes each time. I started running to lose weight. I am 214 lb 5 ft 6 in female. I really enjoy running but my problem is that I am really slowww. Like when I hear people say that they run slow at 12-15 min pace, I wish I was there, that to me is a great pace. Right Now I'm at 19 minute mile pace. Now that's really slow. I want to run a 5K in december the 13th to be specific but I don't know if Il be ready. My goal is to finish in 45 minutes or less which means I need to reduce my mile to 14-15 minutes. And I want to run the whole thing. How can I do this? Do I even have a chance? How long does it take to to increase speed? Help please!
