So I tried running the 5k again tonight - first time since that last post in January. I think I did fairly well - 49 minutes with no cramps (which means I probably could have pushed harder - but I'm a wimp). My goal has been to get that down to 45 minutes within 1-2 months, 30 minutes in 3 months. Tonight I shaved 10 minutes off my original time. Four more minutes and I'll have reached my first goal! I'd say that's excellent progress.
