Comparing you yourself to other runners, especially those through years the experience, is a good way to acquire discouraged. Ns pretty lot stopped to compare myself to others earlier this year and also now I'm see improvements. I had plateaued for quite a while.

A "competitive" time is relative. Room you competing against D1 college runners that specialize in the 5K? Or a few dozen weekend warriors at the church carnival 5K?

I don't understand that there's a "healthy" time. You're gaining out there and putting in 5K ~ above a seemingly continuous basis. That alone is healthy.

How do you feel after her runs? are you seeing development over the long term? are you searching for improvement? as soon as you finish, carry out you feel like you've got an ext in the tank?

Run her run. Not my run, not some other guy's run, your run. What type of times room running?

3 miles ~ 5K. In mine opinion, if you have the right to run this street in much less than 30 minutes, you're law well. Very competitive times, though, often tend to it is in sub-15 minutes.

That said, it all counts on what paper definition you're gyeongju in and what her body is like. Because that some, running a 20-minute 5K is a breeze, while because that others (like me), achieve sub-30 minutes is a challenge.

Run your operation dude. You have the right to go v this world comparing you yourself to rather or you deserve to be the best you have the right to be. I'd introduce not offering a crap & just focus on improving.

Are you acquiring healthier? Faster? Enjoying running more? Those room the concerns to ask.

That is a great answer.

OP, you desire to recognize what's satisfying? run some route of yours...use one of those operation trackers or just a notebook to record it. Forget around that run for a couple of weeks by running other fun and interesting routes. Now, go back and operation it again.

Whoa. Improvement! That's fun.

(For guys) Under 14 minutes you're among the better runners in the world. Under 16 minutes your probably one that the far better runners in your regional area. Under 18 minutes and also you're around as good as middle-of-the-pack high schooler, or someone who runs a lot however not competitively. Under 20 minutes and also you're faster than most people, yet just an OK runner. Something over prefer 23 minutes in a race and you're still in decent shape, yet nothing come write home about.

If you're talking about training, and also not racing, I would say anything under 8 minutes per mile would be healthy. Over the you're gaining into "easy pace" for just around everyone and also should be able to run rather a methods at the pace.
