I did it!

Week 3 Day 1 C25K! I did it, the whole thing, without stopping once. Week 3 is 90 seconds of running, 90 seconds walking, 3 minutes running, 3 minutes walking, and repeat. I usually walk at 2.8 mph and run at 4.1mph. Since I knew this week would be a struggle I did all my walking at 2.8mph and the 90 second runs at 4.1 mph like usual (and even added an extra 90 second run during the cool down), but I slowed down to running at 3.6 mph for the 3 minute runs. My goal right now is running without stopping, I will work on speed later. 3.6 mph seems slow but its still running for my short stride. I am just so proud I ran 3 minutes without stopping, TWICE! Go me :)


  1. That's awesome! It doesn't matter how fast you run, as long as you're doing it. Like you said, you can work on speed later. I'm a couple weeks behind you, it seems spring has spurred a lot of people into doing C25K!

  2. Thanks! It does seem like a lot of people in the blog world are picking up C25K lately, its nice to be able to chat with others during the process
