Hi there, Sally I agree with you. Week 3 day one was much easier to do this week than the first day of week 2. because it was cool here, doing the extra set to add 5 minutes wasn't too hard at all.
I too am worried about running for 3 minutes but I am also excited about seeing if I can actually do it.

I am going at the pace of the program so I don't burn out. If I find that week four is too hard to keep up to, I will do week 3 again until I am ready.

However............I am determined to make it work and will push myself. They don't call this hard work for nothing LOL.

Good luck to all who are in week 3 right now.

I feel your pain!
Today, my I ran 5 miles and it was the pits! I wanted to stop when I got to 3 miles my legs felt like lead. But I did it and got done!

Just keep plugging away! It's going to take time for your systems to realize what you are doing.
Go back to the previous week again if you need to.

Just don't quit!

This was day 1 of week 3 for me. I struggled on week 2 day 1 and also today. On Saturday I cross train and Sunday is my rest day and Mondays just kick my butt. I do not know if it is the 2 days without running but it seemed harder today then at the end of week 2 and the intervals are the same, so I would think it shouldn't be.

WHEW! Today was Week 3, Day 3 for me, and my second walk/run of the week. Sunday's walk/run seemed a breeze, yesterday's bike ride was grand, and then today was a BEAR!

I didn't give up, in fact, did an extra 8 minutes, but wow, am I whipped..... emoticon

just finished day one of week 3! whoo hooo 2.06 miles in 30 minutes! now the 3.1 miles/5 k does not seem like it will be too difficult distance wise, what does seem difficult will be to do it all running without a walk break! I have a hard time thinking I will be able to do it continuously without my lungs exploding! LOL

I just finished week 3 day 1 and it wasn't too hard, but I did notice that my shins, left ankle, and left arch were aching a bit during the walk/run (especially the walk portion). I made sure to put a little more time in stretching when I got home.

What I am really proud of is that I did 2 miles in 30 minutes! Woohoo!

I did Week 3 Day 1 yesterday and it was not too much harder than Week 2. I was also glad the running interval didn't increase, just the time overall. I wasn't even sore today! Seems hard to believe I'll be doing more than 2 minutes at a time, but I guess next week, I will be. Gotta finish this week first though!

Finished Week 3 Day 1. I was amazed that I did it. I was so glad that the interval didn't change this week (3 min walk to 2 min jog), only the total minutes. I was soooo glad to be able to walk again after each 2 minute jog. emoticon
