Have you checked out the SparkPeople official 5k ROOKIE running program? It's longer and starts out slower. I started there and it worked really well for me until my knee got stronger.

Now I am able to run 5k non-stop (without walking). I did modify the program also, I only did 2 runs per week and took a lot longer to finish.

Enjoy! It works!

After week one was completed, I had some pain in my knees. Decided to take a week off to let them rest. In the mean time, I got new shoes, I will stay off the sidewalk and I need to DECREASE my distance. According to several of my running friends (one of which is an expert for more than 30 years), the interval that was suggested here is too fast for me. I am scaling it down. BUT....I will keeping moving forward :)
