lol i do 100 km in hour in my ferrari while you are jogging in india
Its ok, run every other day and do some bodyweight hamstrings work as a supplementation to your jogging.
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.
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
U can continue grinding, but u need fortify ur muscle first. Idk which exercises do u need, search about it or go to a gym and talk to someone.
Yes you hit some good times - if you seriously want to get faster start on a program to do so and go sub 20, sounds like you could ez
Don't be a pussy, don't listen to Doctors and People who are more experienced with running than you are. They are just jelous go for 5km in 20min ez pz
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.
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.
