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.

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.
