The first week has been and gone. I guess the program is a little easy, but I’ll keep doing it because I want to be careful and mindful of avoiding injuries. I also like the success I’m having with each run. There’s nothing like the feeling of making a goal and meeting it the first time, and every time afterwards. I did stray from the initial program and instead of running 3 times a week, I ran 5. Each time got easier and on the last one it really felt comfortable. I feel ready to challenge myself further.
This week’s program is: walk fast for 5 minutes then do 6 intervals of running for 90 seconds and walking for 2 minutes. This means that the total running time will increase from 8 minutes to 9 minutes. It doesn’t really seem like a lot, but we’ll see.
