Well...W1 was pretty easy, but today I did W2, D1 and I have to say it isn't at all easy now. Just as I expected, it requires more from me to do it. I managed, but wonder how the rest of the week will go. Just thought you might be interested that it definitely doesn't stay easy! LOL! (Not for me, anyway!)

I did the first training day yesterday. I found it easy to get through the one minute sessions. But I have been exercising regularly for a few months, and overall I have more endurance now. But after each jog I was out of breath and heart rate was up. My body definately wasn't used to running. I did the training while walking at my local state park. After I finished the training part I walked a little bit then decided to run for as long as I could comfortably and see how long I could go. I ran 1 min 45 seconds total. After I went back to a walk I was breathing so hard and had a stitch in my side. I am so looking forward to being able to increase my endurance for running. I like how the program starts out. It gives enough recovery time to be ready to run again. I am excited to progress. I was to be able to run a full 5k by my 30th birthday Nov 22.

I remember my first week. No, it wasn't easy! I cried and swore after 30 seconds that I'd never run again....look at me now....training for marathon #6 in November :)

It wasn't that easy for me! haha! I think in general walking/running on treadmill is easier - I also was on some small hills which always seemed to hit when I was on the running part.

Yes...it seemed pretty simple to me, too. But, I'm sticking with the plan since I, too, have never been a runner and I'm thinking W2 will begin to be a little more challenging for me. I'm doing mine outside unless there is bad weather and will start W2 on Friday. I still question whether this will be possible in 8 weeks (with 7 left)!

Well, I did W1D1 yesterday, and it almost seemed to easy. I was on the treadmill, and I walked at 3.7 and jogged at a 5. I stopped after the 20 minutes, but I felt like I could have done at least another 2 reps. I am going to do D2 tonight, since I started late in the week. Did anyone else find the first week to be fairly simple? I've never been a runner, so I don't want to do a more advanced program. Just checking to see if anyone else had a similar experience.
