Yeah, that is wrong and I didn't even notice it because I just use the program as it is printed on the team page/ calendar / tracker dealio.

All we do for week 3 is add an extra set of walk 3/ jog 2 for a total of 6 times in 30 minutes.

I don't think pace matters.

I noticed that too--a mistake in the email for this week. Guess we have to find Coach Nicole somewhere... ;)

I have one more day for week 3. I am doing well. Yesterday on each of my 2 minute jogging intervals, I increased the speed by .2 per mile each segment. It felt great! Looking to do the same finishing out week 3!

You'd have to ask one of the spark coaches to modify it. They write the programs. I'm only the team leader here to help if I can.

Thanks Suezette!

I am clear, but should (I guess I mean could) the team email for Week 3 be modified to eliminate future confusion?

Do NOT concentrate on running faster. All you are working on right now is endurance (being able to run). The body needs to adapt to the running first before you start to even consider speed.
Go with a pace that is comfortable, even if that pace is as fast as a walk.

My team email stated:

"This week, you'll add 5 more minutes to your training sessions, picking up the pace so that you run one minute longer (per interval) than last week."

Week 2 had 2 minutes of jogging and so does Week 3. By saying that I would run "one minute longer (per interval)", I expected to walk 2 and jog 3.

Instead, the program added an extra interval, increasing the workout duration from 25 minutes to 30 minutes.

Am I supposed to increase from 25 to 30 minutes AND run faster on the jog session?

Am I confused or is the email incorrect?
