RE: Help running a 16:30 5k
I would do some strides 2-3 times a week, just to keep some speed and get the legs turning over. If you're running mileage you haven't run before your legs are going to be tired so no you're not going to feel quick -- the point is just to get the mileage in so you can do workouts later.
