I am trying to run 5 km in 20 minutes. At my first run I did 4150 metres and 4200 at my second. Yes, I am no athlete!! (Though, I still hold the high jump record at my gymnasium: 1,75 meter...)
I run 20 minutes everytime. It may not be best practice in reaching 5 km, but it is simple and motivating. No matter how much pain the running brings me, I always know it will only last 20 minutes.
