couch to 5k {one week down, eight to go}

8 May
I mentioned the couch to 5k program that I was starting in a recent post. I started it last Wednesday and finished the first week on Sunday. The program is 3 non consecutive days each week for 9 weeks.
The first week was a brisk five minute warmup walk, alternating 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for 20 minutes, then a 5 minute cool down. Jogging for 60 seconds was pretty easy but I know the program will continue to get harder, which I know is the point. Hopefully this program will help me build up my stamina for a 5k in September.
I will start the second week tomorrow and hopefully it will keep feeling pretty easy.

    Hi! I noticed your blog because I did my 2nd workout of Couch to 5k this morning. I’ve never run before, so even the jogging is a little tough for me, but I’m determined to see this through. Good luck on your program!

      Thank you so much! I’ve only run a little here and there because my husband is a runner. Good for you! Good luck to you also! Keep me updated!!
