How fast can you walk

I would venture that when walking for the purpose of exercising, that I can walk around 3 miles per hour. Mainly because my walks that I take (from where I live down the road to a local park and around the trail there and back to my house is just over 3.1 miles) normally take just over an hour. I really enjoy my walks. I haven’t been in walking in a while. When I get home in a few hours, I am going to go for a walk, I have missed it. I have been thinking about starting to throw a little running in the mix. We will see though, I am not much of a runner.

I pose a question to you readers: have any of you ran or participated in a 5K run? I would like to participate in one, but am not sure about prepping for a run. Since I know I can walk that distance I figure with a little training (endurance please) I should be able to do it.

Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions . . . would be greatly appreciated.

I have a couple of apps, meant to help with training. I will turn to those for help for now.
