comment Improve breathing and increase lung capacity
@Informaficker there's 2 or 3 ones done for cyclists based on IMT devices. I wouldn't dismiss it outright without trying it as we're not talking about Olympic performance improvements here. However interval training is by far the most effective way of increasing vo2 max and your lungs for running (which my original answer didn't have), I would suggest the device as an interesting addition rather than an alternative.

@Informaficker they're talking about simulating altitude training with a different device though (a mask you wear while you train).

comment How many carbs before a run?
A runner who competes regularly from 10km to the marathon requires an above average intake of carbohydrates of the right sort. There are two types:- a) low glycemic b) high glycemic. The first are preferentially stored as glycogen the second get into the blood-stream quickly and are good to take 3 hours before training and within 30 minutes of completing training. It is a bad thing to rely on high glycemic foods 48 hours before a marathon. Concentrate on low glycemic carbs.

This isn't absolute rubbish - take a look at serpentine.org.uk/pages/advice_frank01.html by someone who knows a bit about running (Frank Horwill) and @Nathan if you're still interested. Complex carbs are generally low GI/GL foods

comment Realistic best time for 5k?
What's the top speed you can run at on a treadmill? Smartcoach gives you a good idea of what you can achieve runnersworld.co.uk/racing/runners-world-smartcoach/3057.html based on what you're comfortable running at
