@GrannyPantiesRock:  I say yes!  If you can do a two 11-minute miles without really training, then I think you could definitely train towards a 9 minute 40 second mile!  (30 minutes divided by 3.1 miles.)  You do have a whole 3 months, and it’s really helpful to have a goal like this to work towards.

Go girl!

Based on your 22 minute 2miles I think you could totally do a 5k in under 30 by october with dilligent training 🙂 BTW, for your 1st time, your time is AWESOME!! (I’m not a very fast runner)

If I were you I wouldn’t run more than 4 times a week if you haven’t been running regularly already. It’s really hard on the joints & you don’t want to get a stress injury from going too hard too soon. Other than that, it sounds like you’ve got it figured out! Good luck!!!

@GrannyPantiesRock:  totally! I trained for 2 months for my 5k and did it in 30:08…and that was going from not really running at all. I think 3 months is totally enough time to get you to a 5k in 30 minutes or less!

Absolutely! I find my training pace is always slower than my race pace because of the extra adreneline. With diligent training and already impressive results, I think you’ve got this in the bag! Keep us updated!

You got this girl, I am around the same training pace and I have most definitely ran 30 minute 5k’s.  Keep us in the loop!

You definitely can! Keep up the training and be careful not to get injured!
