Need Jogging Help
 | 
India otgps 
I jogged for 5 kilometers in 25 minutes today. Wasn't that tired after it and after resting for about 3 minutes, bicycled for bout 20 kms at average 23km/h (For 10 km, I had about 13 kg extra weight because bought groceries) I always used to think this time was fuck ugly slow and so for the past 21 days, I've been running 5km twice in 3 days. That's 2 days running, 1 day rest then 2 days running, 1 day rest and so on. My best time during this was 22 minutes 48 seconds. Yesterday, I was on a forum where people were praising a man (like telling him good job. Well done dude) for doing a 29 min 5km run. When I told them my time and intensity, they told me to back off and slow down my routine. I also had some knee pains in this cold so I went to doctor and he also told me I need to slow down. I ask HLTV, is 5km in 25 min okay or should I grind more? Also, should I run every other day instead of twice in 3 days? TLDR: How good is 5km in 25 minutes and can I be fit by running it every other day?

Its ok, run every other day and do some bodyweight hamstrings work as a supplementation to your jogging.

Jogging works front of your leg muscles aka Quadriceps, to make sure you won't injure yourself in the future you should supplement that with exercising your back leg muscles aka Hamstrings. I recommended you bodyweight work, because i don't see point of buying weights just to hit that muscle when you jogg only. Just check on youtube "Bodyweight Hamstring exercises" pick 1 exercise and do 4 sets of 10 reps 3x week.

2019-01-22 21:54
i think that pace is fine, but if you really wanna improve that time, start running 8km than 10km instead of 5km. your 5km time will improve really fast. Also a 5km run in 20 min is somewhat easily achievable if you are something like 20-25 years old. Now if you run 5km in 16 min, then im gonna be impressed. Oh yeah, start doing some push ups, pull ups, squats and plank exercises, thats all you need to be fit while runninng.

I started running on 11th november. Trying to make 10km by march 1st. Long term goal 10km 30 minutes
2019-01-22 21:51
10km 30 minutes can get you to national level competition man, get a coach because the road to that goal without coah will surely get you injured many times.

I can't afford a coach right now so I am going back to college so I can enroll in the college athletic program.
2019-01-22 22:00
anything under 20min I'd consider 'good' pace 25 is pretty slow, but normal for a 'fit' novice either way, if it's hurting your knees then you're better off doing something that won't stress the knee joint as much cycling is a good alternative

Its too cold to cycle here right now. About 2-3 degree wind chill temperatures and my nose just freezes up so I started jogging. Only 2 months in right now. I can cycle at about 31kmph for an hour but my cycle is not that good and straight handlebars

-25 and its still easy biking

Straight. I go as good as I can for 400m then a bit slower for 50m then again fast for 400m then a bit slow for 50m. Continue till 5 km. Speed for fast 400m is like 12km/h. Speed for slower 50m is like 6km/h
2019-01-22 21:59
ah ok, i ve been running for 3 months now, i kinda improved but my condition still sucks, i have strong legs but it doesnt help much i think, i run in fking snow, -5/-10*C i do atleast 3km everyday, waiting for better weather

Thanks man. You have no idea how much I needed this positivity in my day today. Its beenraining for past 2 days so I couldn't run and that shit hurts when you trying to achieve something
2019-01-22 21:57
You can still run in the rain, just note it so those are personal best times in wet conditions so it's no longer a pressure and an opportunity instead

Your number one problem is comparing your times to others. You aren't running in the Olympics, so you don't need to give a damn about what a "good" 5km time is. If you want to improve, the only time you need to worry about is yourself. Sure as you get fitter and maybe more competitive, you may wish to see what other speeds people are doing, but not at the beginning. Have a look at aerobic and anaerobic respiration, there's a yt channel called vo2maxproductions and they have a lot of good vids. You're clearly a novice runner, so want to be doing most of your training at an easy and comfortable pace to build your aerobic base. This also helps prevent injuries, as you're not over training them. You can't go out and push yourself doing speed training everyday and expect your body to be fine. You can train as many days as you want, you just need to listen to your body. If something feels off, don't push your luck. Rather rest and do cross training that doesn't cause discomfort. Speaking of which, if you want to run faster, it's not just about going out and running. You want to have a strong core, good balance and correct posture, so hit the gym and work on your whole body. TLDR Don't compare times with others, focus on self improvement, don't train hard everyday and strengthen your whole body. Good luck, I suggest using an app like Strava or something similar with which you can monitor and track your progress.

I like how you think man. Gyms are a scam in india so I will avoid them but I will take rest of what you said to the heart. I don't use open mouth to breathe ever and have a good breathing cycle going on so I think I am kind of OK on breathing front. Brother I uninstalled everything google a while back and I don't use GPS anymore. I run without phone and use a stopwatch for time. Never gonna use an app or anything

Yes, doing it frequently will make you fit af. It's also true that you should take it step by step, your overweight puts a serious pressure on your knees thus you gotta change your routine. Cracking records ain't a good idea in your case, that's why you should have listened to those people on the forum - it's better to do it slowly in 30 or even 35 minutes, but save your knees health(which will be very hard to fix when you're older) It doesn't mean you should stop jogging, but it'll be better to save your legs by focusing on Callisthenics, which can eventually help you lose weight. Situps and burpees are great exercises to start with, as they don't require any training but yet are very effective. Go jogging in a split(like 5 days of running and 2 days of rest) and run slowly, you can do callisthenics the same day. Whenever you feel discomfort with your knees slow down, try to run less the next day or take a rest. Lose as much weight as you can to feel comfortable and then you can go full jogging again. Overall it's a good combo for a healthy person; running every morning in a park is much better than doing it in the gym, it's also more fun than doing usual burnout exercises and it surely helps you get shredded no matter what gym/callisthenics routine you have.

That's the problem. I don't run in the morning. I wake up at 12 in the afternoon and run at about 7pm in the evening Rest, I'll sure look into what calisthenics is and try it

Well doing it later is not a problem. Just early in the morning parks are empty(except people running ofc), so it's kinda nice and more comfortable, when in the evening it's usually crowded. In the morning you also may not be hungry(so drink water and you're good to go, have breakfast after), which gives you an opportunity to burn your fat more effectively (of course if you feel like starving then it may even be dangerous).

Brother I live among retired people and in the morning, park is full of old zombies with their oversized hats and laughs while holding their walking sticks. Literally 50-60 old people in the park every morning. By 7pm, most even have their lights out so there's literally only me and like 8 other dudes who dance practice in the middle of the ground. I eat at about 8pm and then am up till 4am so when I wake up, I am hungry as shit

Oh well, diet is also important :/ I know it's hard but you should consider changing your way of life. You can look up healthy diets to burn fat on the internet, but it's mandatory to have normal gaps between eating. 8 hours is a hell of a gap, it'd be so much healthier and better if you ate some protein food at 10 pm (without carbs, like cottage cheese) and went to bed, let's say, at 1 AM. So when you wake up you won't be that hungry(it also depends on how much of protein you consume though) and that means you'll burn your fat much more effectively; it's also better to have breakfast full of complex carbs after you're done with your morning routine(like a porridge meal).

The Doctor is trying to save my knees. HLTV is trying to keep me motivated. So if HLTV agrees with the doctor, then I follow the doctor. Otherwise, what doesn't kills you makes you stronger
