I didn't complete the last day of week 4 but I'm moving on to week 5. I feel bad a missed a day. I'm confident though that I can move on without a hitch. This week really showed me that I can do anything I put my mind to. I want this and I'm doing it. I get better and better each week that I do it. Wishing everyone the very best and good luck this upcoming week!!!!
I can't believe I finished week 4 and I feel great. I have always dreaded running and now I look forward to it. The first two weeks I ran 3 times a week and now I fit it in extra runs. I make time for it. Looking forward to starting week 5! I'm so excited.
Week 4 is done!!! It was hard but doable. I seem to be able to recover ok. My legs are sore today though. My week 5 is going to be crazy. My daughter is getting married on Sat. so my week is going to be busy. I plan on doing day 1 Mon day 2 Tues and day 3 either Wed or Thurs depending how I feel. I am glad it is just adding 5 more min because I think I can do that.

Week 4 was a killer for me; boy did I struggle. I can tell I made progress but I don't think I did well enough to really move to the next wee. I'm thinking I should do it over; but I'm not sure. I know that I don't really have to move on if I don't think I'm ready; I was just hoping to be able to follow the program on track. I guess the positive is before I couldn't run 30 seconds straight and now I've far surpassed that. so who knows; I'm still thinking about it!

I do one walking lap around the track to warm up before I start timing intervals. It really helps. I also do one walking lap (takes about 10 minutes) after all the intervals are done to cool down. It's my victory lap, lol. Then stretches.
And I think I might start doing some kind of warm up beforehand - maybe just walking for a few more minutes before running. That was one good thing about the Couch to 5k program - it always has you warm up with a 5 minute walk.
I'm starting to do 3 minute runs! I was only doing 2.5 but towards the end I just ran and didn't stop when time was up. Cindi
