I attempted to run my first 5K on Saturday. It didn't go too bad. I made it in 38:11...which considering I walked 3 times over the course of the 3.1 miles...I don't think that's too shabby. I am going to keep training and would love to try an... Read more

I'm a little disappointed. I was going to increase my intervals from 4 to 6 while running 6min and walking 2, but needed to be up by 5 in order to be back in time. Unfortunately, I only managed to get 4 intervals in. We had an unexpected call... Read more

The transition from 4 minutes to 6 minutes went great! My legs got a little tight so I was glad to have the 2 minute recovery to stretch them out, but I was never out of breath or struggling. I did 4 intervals today...I think I will try 6 inte... Read more

Well, I've not done a blog entry before so we'll see how this goes. This morning was awesome! I bumped up my running from 3 to 4 minutes and decreased walking from 1:30 to 1. The first 4 cycles went fairly well. A little struggle going u... Read more
