Q. i want to run a 5k. how should i train?

A. first of all- congratulations! way to go! pick a target and stick to it!
now, it really depends on your abilities now. start running 1k. see how long it takes you. then try it again 3-4 times see that your time is getting better. then do a 1.5k, do that 3-4 times too. then 1.750 and from now on every 2-3 runs go up in 250 m. but you should run no more no less then 3 times a week. don't forget stretching after and warm up. good luck!!
