Ha, did not see this post before I posted mine.

Why would they create a program designed to make a person give up and "do their own thing" instead? Or is this huge jump not that hard for others?

I am frustrated.

It's also ok to adjust the timing too!
Do it how it works for you.
Don't worry about rushing the process just to finish.

As soon as I finished week 1 I knew I wouldn't be able to run for 2 minutes straight. But I had already increased the number of intervals and length during week 1 so I knew I could do a bit more. My solution was to run 1.5 minute intervals for 4 or 5 times for a week. I'm now doing week 2 proper and it's a tough go but I'm doing it.

Not a thing at all wrong with repeating weeks!! I've had to repeat weeks in Marathon trainings so a 16 week training program becomes a 18 to 20 week training. Even seasoned runners do repeats :)

CATBEFIT - That's what I'm going to do tomorrow morning. I may have to repeat week 2/3 but oh well. The goal is to become a runner, and repeating weeks isn't a big deal. emoticon emoticon

I couldn't do it either. I decided I would do a week of a mid-range option -- with a 90 second jog and a 2-1/2 minute walk, for the intervals. When I am comfortable with that, I will move to the two minute jog.

I've decided that I need to be comfortable (ie able to breathe) doing the program -- and since it is "Your Way" I will modify it to make it work for me -- even if it takes more weeks.

YES!! you do /and or will feel it. Go for the BIG push and if not then do the decrease and work your way up again. You'll work it out. You will!!

Try decreasing your run time to 1 and a half minutes and see if that helps with the transition.

Is anyone having trouble going from week 1 to 2? The increase of running time from 1 to 2 minutes seems to be harder than I expected. I ran the full 2 mi the first interval, then I couldn't finish the rest. This is just day 1 of week 2 for me, so maybe it gets better, but anyone else have this problem?
