The Couch to 5K program is what most people in my area use....

Okay, so I have a little over a month to train for my first 5k ever! I am not on track or any sort of sports. I'm actually not athletic at all so I can use all the help I can get!

Ever since my horrible mile time freshman year, I've committed to getting a better mile time.

In high school my mile times were:
Freshman: Pre-test 12:12 Post-test 10:50
Sophomore: Post-test 9:53
Junior: N/A
Senior: Pre-test 8:33

I'm 18 and a senior right now. I'm planning to jog after school (probably every other day if I can) a little less than a mile each day. I've been working on pacing myself. Is there anything I should do to train or certain time/length I should run for? (I also have P.E. class at school, but I'm not counting that as training for the 5k)
