Our expert says:
It's not too slow, no. You're just starting out, remember, and one of the things that will change the fastest is your fitness levels. So in a month from now, you will be covering those 5km in say 55min, then 50min, and one day you'll look back and be amazed at how much you've improved!
but for now, it's normal to be both tired and out of breath, because you're taking your body to levels it's not used to. You just need to give it time to adapt.
The same goes for weight training - just train at the level you can, and over time, it will improve. Your target should be fitness, not weight, and so don't be discouraged that you've only lost 3kg - what you should be aiming for is improved fitness. If that comes, the rest takes care of itself.
You might also, for variety, try cycling or rowing or stairclimbing, just substitite the 60 minutes that you would have done walking for any of these activities (or a split between them)
