I went to podrunner intervals and downloaded week 1 of Gateway 2 8K. This evening I did week 1, day 1. I think I am going to like this!
Week 1 consists of three intervals of 7 minutes of running following by 1 minute of walking. Being as slow as I am, it was really a challenge to keep pace with the beat of the music during the 7 minute runs. I couldn't do it for the whole 7 minutes, but I did as much as I could, pushing myself to keep up with the beat.
Even with the 5 minute warm up and cool down at the beginning and end, I did my 5k route the fastest I've ever done it! Even faster than on Saturday when I jogged the whole thing.
Maybe there's hope for me yet!
