What is general aerobic pace?

Is a 5 minute pace good?

A noncompetitive, relatively in-shape runner usually completes one mile in about 9 to 10 minutes, on average. If you’re new to running, you might run one mile in closer to 12 to 15 minutes as you build up endurance. Elite marathon runners average a mile in around 4 to 5 minutes.

How do I know my 10K pace?

Project Your Pace for Longer Distances

  1. The first is by punching your baseline pace into an online pace calculator.
  2. The second way to calculate your running pace for long distances is to simply add 20-30 seconds onto your 5K pace time to find your 10K pace, and another 20-30 seconds for your half-marathon pace.

What is a good pace for a 5K?
