Thanks! I realized I was probably doing it correctly when I thought about the fact that it is noted that the workouts will be from 53 to 70 minutes. Doing 4x instead of 3x would have put me over those ranges.

Whew!

According to my iPhone app, you're doing it correctly.

I just did w5d2 of b210k this morning, but (for whatever reason) it just occurred to me that I might have been reading the program WRONG this whole time!

For example, the program says:

Week 4:
5 minute warmup
Run 18 min/walk 1 min (Repeat 3x)
5 minute cooldown

So, I...
ran 18 min, walk 1,
ran 18, walk 1,
ran 18, walk 1

Was I reading the program wrong? Should I have been running the sequence 4x instead of 3x? Should I have read it as "Run 18 min/walk 1 min PLUS (Repeat 3x)"??

Thanks!
