I am interested in the intervals introduced in this program but am starting off with a 5K distance from the get-go.
I am terrible about self-discipline, so what I am doing is making it part of my commute to work. We have a workout facility with showers in my office building, so my plan is that on my off-day I pack and bring shower stuff, clothing, etc. so that on my running day, I only bring my keys, phone, and metro pass. There is a metro stop 3.1 miles from my office, so I just get off there (3 stops earlier than normal) and walk/jog until I get to work. My eventual goal is to jog all the way from home to work, which is 5 miles.
I am following the program's guidelines on intervals of jogging, it's just that the overall workout is longer. Just finished Week 1 Day 1 and it took me 50 minutes.
Has anyone else started off with a 5K distance from the beginning?
