I am a beginner runner and I am ambitous. I have started running everyday in preparation for the 10K run at the end of May in the Ottawa National Capital Race Weekend.
I am trying to run it in 50 minutes but many say it is not possible because my pace is to slow.
Is this a realistic goal? If not, what is?
How do I speed up my pace? (at the current pace, I am wiped at the end of my run). It feels like my pace is barely improving.
I am 18 years old, about 5 11 or 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. So I am overweight but I am trying to lose weight as well as train.
Any running tips would be greatly appreciated it.
What do you think of the Nike + system while running?

Thanks for making me do the math .... ( :
You are currently averaging 10:12.54 / mile. This is a "jog". To put things into perspective, a brisk walk is about 12:30.0 /mile. You would like to average 8:03.52 / mile. This is not a realistic goal for such a short period of time.
A goal of 50 min. is going to take some time and some lost pounds. I believe that a realistic goal right now is to break 1 hour.
