5k isnt very far so ur looking for speed? Hit some hills and trails and run em hard. Makes flat ground a cake walk. Also to build speed stamina and strength run faster longer harder. Im more of a long haul guy myself but the same rules apply. U have to put in the miles , speed , or whatever it is ur looking for to get wat u want out of it.

Build up yourself to be able to run lots of miles (speeds not too important). Speed will come after you can run long distances first. Also throw in some explosion days.

What is explosion day? I'm a newbie in running

Like run some sprints on a track, 200s, 300s, 400s, 800s. Or some sprints on a hill. Also try to run on grass as much as possible.

Exactly.

One way Skimble can help is by working plyometric workouts into your routine.  These will help with both speed and endurance (especially if you run hills).

Ouch lol ! Just have fun and run ! The rest will follow in time! If ur a rookie u dont need all that stuff. Finding ur groove is all that matters at this point.

Haha Erik, I totally agree with u! i think u should just have fun with it for awhile before u take it so seriously.
03 Apr
Mol glad somebody agrees! No all that other stuff is good info and would b great and if he's into it then by all means get after it! I guess I just take a more simple approach.
03 Apr
Simplicity is best! Agree with u again, dang! I tried that at first but he needed more info.haha
