I just finished 5.87 K - it was my first 5K! It took me 69 minutes. I ran almost all they way - had to walk a couple of hills, probably about 5 or 6 minutes of walking at the most.
I could not follow the training plan. There was way too much starting and stopping and looking at my watch. The more I stop and walk, the harder it is to start running again. I wanted to take a walking break after 15 minutes, but I pushed through and it was actually 40 minutes into the run before I just could not make it up a hill without walking.
Now I can work on getting faster.
