    I run 5k once a week (most weeks), always off-road. My last run (moderately rough field, approx 300ft elevation) was 27:22. I consider myself of above-average fitness although I'm very much a novice runner. I don't run at "race-pace" though (i.e. I'm not completely spent when I've finished) because I'm not experienced enough yet to pace myself properly if I try to run as fast as I can.

    My current goal is to get under 25mins which I think I might be able to achieve on a flatter/smoother field - there is a suitable sports field near where I live so I'm planning to give that a go early on Saturday morning (I'll let you know how I get on!). In my (limited) experience though pacing & technique is as important as fitness if you want to improve your time.

    I am currently running a very slow pace at a 6 min per km pace (10.8mins per mile) Last run 10 days ago was 36mins for 6kms pretty flat run over grass, sand tracks and pavement, some slight hill work. Goal is to get to a 5 min/km. Doing lots of high intensity intervals to try and get there.

    I consider myself unfit.... Or a least that's how I feel. Trying to run once per week in prep for a short coarse adventure race.

    Hope that helps. Cheers FBF

    my last timed race was right around 28 minutes, for half road/half trail, decent hills and in the rain. i usually run about an 8 minute mile for my regular runs, but i'm sort of hoping to be able to do a sub 20 5k by this fall.

    5K - 22:30
    10K - around 48 min

    I've stopped running 1.5 month ago (the weather became too hot, a running partner too sloppy and smoking ), switched to bodyweight exercises.

    Been running since May 1st. Started out running 2 miles twice a week. Got it down to 15 minutes. For the past month, and until Winter, I'm doing it a little different.

    Once per week: Light jog/fast walk first 1/2 mile. Run a full mile (6-7 minutes). Walk/sprint last 1/2 mile. This takes about 20-25 minutes and feels like a much better workout than just running.

    i've just started running again. I did 3 miles this morning in 27 mins, I'm not built like a runner and I'm about 25lbs above target weight. I'm happy with that

    Just out of curiosity, what's your running plan? I would guess it's not some 'stock' running plan from the popular running websites and magazine, especially considering your stunning time for 5K.

    That's more like it. I run it anywhere from 18:14 to 21:00. That was last year when I ran it 2-3 times a week. This summer will be 1 time a week according to primal. We ll see what that's like.
