I started training today... I ran in my basement, so I'm not exactly sure how far I ran, but I did do 8 intervals, total of 8 min walking and 24 min jogging. I'm guessing it was around 3 miles, maybe a little less. It's snowing outside and I don't have a treadmill at home, so it's difficult to tell exactly how far I went, which is a little frustrating since in the past the most I ever ran/walked was 1.5 miles. I'm feeling great, a little tired. Also, I need to work on getting rid of the side stitch and cramping that goes on halfway through my routine.

D1 today. Coming from the 5k walk/jog program, the 1min recovery was tough. Also I noticed I can't run very fast unless I want my heart rate to go through the roof. HR recovery was good though. I'm still sore from my last Group Power session; won't have that issue for D2 so it'll be all good.

Just did my first run and it felt pretty good. I noticed a little pain in my knee, but since I don't regularly run I had expected something like that (I do a lot of biking). My race isn't until August, but it's a triathlon, so I'm giving myself a lot of extra time and hoping that by the time August comes around I will be in great shape!

I did w1d1 yesterday. Instead of 7 intervals I did 6 in 32 minutes. I think my counting was a bit off. I did 2 miles, just over and I was more than a little surprised I did it at all. I feel like I would have rather started between the 8 week program and this, but there is no in between so I'm gonna make this work. Besides, my first actual race is June 25 and that's like 6 weeks. I think I may just need that little extra time.

Just finished my first run... Man that was AWFUL! I'm going to stick to it, but it was much more of a challenge than I expected.

A part of me wants to drop down to the 8 week plan, but I finished Day 1, so I know that I'm at least capable of this.

Don't be discouraged. Running a treadmill is very different than running outside. Since you are used to the treadmill, you are right to ease into outdoor running. Your muscles and bones need time to adjust.

I think if you stick with the program diligently, you will have no problem with your 5k in 6 weeks. And if you do for some reason.... well, there is always another 5k you can sign up for!

I did W1D1 today, but not very successfully. I had done all my training in the 8 week Rookie Running program on the treadmill, and I could tell when I went on Saturday to run my race. Outside was a lot harder!

So I decided to do this program outside as much as possible. Am I too easy on myself when I'm outside? I don't know, but I only did 26 minutes, and probably ran about 2/3 of that instead of 3/4, the way the program calls for. I'm such a wimp!!

I can use the excuse that I'm still sore from my 5K on Saturday, but I really want to run the whole 5K next time. I have another race scheduled for 6 weeks. Can I be ready to run the whole thing in that time?? Color me discouraged....

I wasn't prepared for my run this morning, so I did not know what the intervals were supposed to be. I just did the best I could remember, which I thought was walk 1min, run 4min, and did 5 intervals for a total of 25 minutes of intervals, as well as 5 min warm up and 5 min cool down making the workout a total of 35 minutes and 2.26 miles. I count that as done, because with the extra minute on the run intervals, it was just as challenging. I will do Day 2 properly!

I would like to start training to walk 5K again, try to get my time under 62 minutes this time.

W1D1 yesterday. 3.1 miles in 46.10 minutes. Did 1 min walks and 3 min runs. I did more intervals than the plan suggested but I have been walking 3-4 miles pretty consistently so the distance was not an issue. Legs felt a little tired toward the end, but overallI felt pretty good throughout. Not sore today, yeah! Excited to be pushing myself to the next level!

You will find yourself getting more and more distance in that 40 minutes. Gradual improvement is the way to go. I started with only 35 minutes. Bit by bit we are reaching our goals!

It was a little struggle. Wanted to quit a few times, but remind myself that you need to do this. You have a goal to meet. Unfortunately I ran out of time, had a meeting to attend. I ran 40 minutes, and only done 2.25 miles. Monday is another will do better,with patience and time. emoticon emoticon
