I am new to this group. I starting exercising for weight loss 6 weeks ago. I
really enjoy the treadmill and push myself pretty hard. I exercise 5x week
at 3 miles a pop. I am up to 3 miles in 42 minutes now (this includes warm
up, fast walking and bursts of running at 1/4 mile a piece). How long should
I wait to do the first 5k? I am really enjoying the running and get this
"runner's high" I heard about almost every day. I want to set my first goal
on the 5k but am not sure what the level of fitness these people have there.
I don't want to be the last one to cross the finish line if you know what I
mean. Do any of you remember the first days? How long should I wait? I
planned on waiting until I could do 3 miles in 30 minutes. Is that too soon?
