I typically get between 5.5 - 6 miles in an hour. My heart rate is near the top end of my workout zone the entire time. So I'm pushing it pretty hard. I've thought with all the darkness about going for 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the evening instead of the 1 hour.

Hi,

When I first started my marathon training this year without a heart rate monitor I did 8km / 4.97miles. I couldn't run more than 6/7 minutes without having to walk and to be frank it was more like extended interval training that went something like - jog, sprint, jog, sprint, which eventually turned into a walk, jog, walk, jog emoticon

Now I'm using MiCoach which teaches you to work within heart rate zones I've slowed down to 7.2km in one hour, however I run it all and in the week after I ran for 1hour 50 minutes c13km as my weekly long run. I was very emoticon

Although I'm on a marathon training programme, I would certainly recommend a heart rate zone based running programme for newbies like me.

I can get about 5 miles done in 57-65 min, depending on how much my body tells me to walk instead of run on any given day.

Thanks everyone! I'm concerned that I won't be able to get out for more than an hour at a time, so I was just curious as to how far I would be able to go on a typical day. Thank you!

when I do my C25 on the road I do about 2 miles in 30 minutes (or 4 miles in an hour?) on the treadmill though it's 3 miles in one hour....I may try to bump that up today. LOL

Great question! It took me about 40 minutes to run 3.2 miles, so I think I could make it to about 5. Just posting the question makes me want to try!!!

I've been running for three years and am not fast and probably never will be. I'm also totally okay with that. When I started running, I did a 5k in about 50 minutes. Now I can comfortably run 6 miles per hour, and on race days, I can do almost 7. So once you gain strength and endurance, your pace will pick up significantly, even if you never get "fast." Just stick with it! That's the most important thing. :)

My 5K training program is usually between 50 and 55 minutes each time. It's building me up to be able to run about 3 miles (5K, obvs) in that time frame. However, I know once I reach that and can do it consistently that I'm going to want to add distance. Without being a speed runner (alas, I'm built for comfort, not speed, and I don't expect that to change significantly once I hit goal weight), how far could I reasonably get in an hour? What's a decent expectation towards which to work?

Thanks!
Mina
