I think you need to go at a comfortable pace for you. Yesterday I completed Day 1, Week 1 (I started last week, but wound up with shin splints that knocked me out of finishing, so I started over yesterday with better shoes), and was actually WHEEZING at the end of each run portion (How do the contestants on Biggest Loser not DIE from their workouts?).
You shouldn't be punishing yourself, but instead, building endurance slowly. Do what feels right and you'll be doing great!

hello i noticed a blog of yours saying u finished ur first wk. i got a ?. I too am doing the running/jogging i just started mon an my ? is how fast should i be going since i decided to walk on my cross training days i read somewhere it should be at a cardiovascular pace but im still not sure
I started last Monday and it took me almost 40 minutes to go 2 miles. And if that isn't depressing enough, I am so out of condition that I also managed a nice dose of shin splints. My legs feel pretty good today, so I intend to head out tomorrow.
