@estherdragonbat I didn’t know you were running now! That’s a great time for a first 5k, it took me a year to get that fast!

Thank you for all of these comments. Particularly, the slow speed and full exhale advice. I just downloaded c25k. Any advice on how to space the 3 days of week 1? I walk a lot, never run.

Bottom line - it works.
I'm one of those people who simply can't run, never have been able to.
I did the C25K program a few years back and at the end, I was running 5K. Believe me, if I can do it, anybody can!
I actually kept it up for a while afterwards as well. I had visions of me bounding gracefully through woodlands in the early morning mist, nodding to the rabbits and squirrels as I floated effortlessly past.
Reality was, I never progressed through the gasping-to-stay-alive in a wringing ball of sweat and pain stage and it never got any easier or any closer to being fun so I went back to cycling for my cardio.
But, yes, it works!
