0 tot 5 km in 10 weeks
0 tot 5 km in 12 weeks

Thank's Wouter. Please don't worry about translating, they're mostly self-explanatory and for the rest there's BabelFish. But thank you so much for the offer. (I'm also not planning to stick to any one protocol too rigidly.) One question though, if my understand is correct then the 7 week program is run-walk-run-walk, but the distance is not constant? So on any given week one might very well run more than 5 kms? Or is the distance constant: 5 K?
Today I did 5k: 4 minutes run: 1 minute walk. No soreness.
Does the interjected walking actually help the joints ease into running or is it just to help with maintaining endurance?
