Yesterday was week 2 day 1 and I thought walk 3 minutes run 2 no problem. I got on the treadmill at lunch did 3 minutes started to run 2 minutes when 2 minutes went by still feeling it so I kept running for 10 minutes straight. I couldn't believe I did it. 3 more minutes walking at 3.6 mph the ran again for 2 minutes and kept up that pace for 25 minutes. I felt great, then did 15 minutes of weight training. Today I'll just do weight training and some yoga.

I did Week 2 first training session today. I wasn't sure I could do it all, but I DID! While I was struggling to finish the 3rd 2 minute run interval, I figured out that it should be harder...Week 2 has 2 1/2 times more running than Week 1 did, so it would be ok if I couldn't finish it all, then the stubborn streak kicked in and I did finish it. It should get easier for the next 2 training sessions this week, I guess. It sounds so pitiful that it's so hard to run (or jog really) for 2 minutes, but I will look at it like it's way better than I could do a few months ago, and be proud of progress, no matter how pitiful it sounds. emoticon emoticon

Way to go ladies on your week 2 training. I just completed my first day of week 2 this morning. Wasn't sure I'd get through the 2 minutes run intervals but managed today. One day at a time.

It surprised me, too! Both Tuesday and today, I was dying for that last interval! It's just going to get easier though. emoticon

It surprised me how much longer 2 minutes are compared to the 1 minutes from week 1! I mistakenly only did the walk/jog intervals 4 times instead of 5 and thought I was just going to die! It made me completely dread doing it the full 5 times, but my "actual" day 1 of week 2 went by much smoother :)

I started week two today! It is so much harder than week 1! I'm glad we do this interval ratio for two weeks.

I did my 3rd run today. I had a lot more energy today and the run felt much easier today. I even ran an extra minute on my last interval. I'm feeling pretty good about moving on to week three, but it's going to be a really busy week so I might have to get creative to find time to do all three runs next week.

Thanks guys! I did my 2nd run this week. It was tough again, but got through it. I think my 3rd run will be on friday. Hopefully it will feel a little easier.

I didn't think I was going to be able to run the 2 minute intervals, but I did. I think the key was that I kept telling myself I could do it, and trying to push out the negative thoughts.

I'm going to sign up for a race in February today. it's 4 miles so I'm not sure if I will be able to run the whole thing, but I'm optimistic that I will be able to run at least half of it by then if I stick with this program.
