I had to take off a while while I had a cold. I could not breath not to mention jog. So I will start up again in a day or two. I may go back to week 2 since it has been a week and 1/2 since I jogged.

Week 2 possible do over. So I managed to survive week 2 however I never actually got to jogging for 2 minutes. I got to only manage 1.5 minutes at a time. So I think I may extend this program and do week 2 over. Maybe I will call it week 2B. ha ha!

Yesterday was the begining of week two. I survived and have training session two tomorrow. I am hoping that I can make it the full two minutes of jogging. I know that sounds sad that I can't jog for two minutes at 5 MPH. But Boy did it kick my butt yesterday,

So this morning I walk/jogged for the 3rd time in a week. It felt GREAT! I am a little concerned with increasing my tolerance,as I am still having to hold on after the run for a 1/2 minute so I don't fall down. ha ha! Maybe I should do week one over! ha ha. I am going to do this but I may have to make it a 13 or 14 week program instead of 12. ha ha!

Second training session down and I am doing better than expected. Now if I could only get down not holding on to the handles while recovering from running after the running interval. Sadly I am running faster than I have ever run in my life only 5 miles per hour.

Happy to admit I did my first training session today and it was great. I have not pushed myself in a while so it felt awesome! I just hope my feet can keep up. I am not going to do consecutive days as I do not want to strain my feet. I think this will really help me reach my goal this year!

So I was reading the Spark your way to a 10 K article and I was thinking if this training is a 12 week program that would put us into the spring and time for the 5 and 10K. So I was thinking it would be fun to prepare ourselves during the winter months so we look hot in the spring. ha ha The link is below.

or simply search Spark your way to a 10K.

I plan on doing the 10K Walk/Jog Program which in week one walk for 4 minutes at 3.5 MPH or higher and run for 1 minute at 5 MPH doing 7 reps for 35 minutes. I am going to try to do this 3 times a week.

For those wanting to jog the entire 10 K Week One is work out 3 days that week jogging. Day 1 jog 2 miles, Day 2 jog 3 miles, Day 3 jog 2 miles. They do not want you to jog 3 days in a row so break it up during the week. One to two other days they want you to mix up some cross-training like biking, walking, swimming, rollerblading.

So as of today Tuesday January 4, 2010 I will start my week one training.
