Not ready to move on

Last night I finished week 4 of the C25K. I was able to do the whole thing without stopping, walking at 2.8mph and running at 3.6mph. However, I did feel like I was going to die the last couple minutes of each run! I think I am going to do another day or two of week 4 before I move on to week 5.

Week five has a different routine for each day. Day one is alternating 5 minutes of running with 3 minutes of walking for a total of 15 minutes. Day two is 8 minutes of running, 5 minutes of walking, and 8 minutes of running. Then day three is 20 minutes of running, no walking! I can't imagine running for 20 minutes straight when I can barely make it to 5!

Tonight I plan to do 30DS and go for a walk because its so nice out! I also have 9 points left for the day because work was so busy I didn't have time to eat. I will try to make a snack before the end of the night but I think I will still end up being a little short today.

  1. 3.6 is walking, not running. Jogging is 4.5-5.0 and running is well over 5 (I run at 5.6mph and walk at 3.5mph).
