And so it begins.....

I just started the 5K my way program today. I'm determined to run a 5K this summer. My community has a ton of them and they are all for good causes.

Week 1, Day 1: The walk was very easy. My stopwatch didn't work right for the first running part, so I think I ran 3 minutes instead of 1. The first 2 minutes were grueling, but the last minute I hit a stride. I almost kept going, but I didn't. I want to follow this program as written to see if it really works.

Tomorrow: Golfing 9 holes for my "Rest or cross-train" day. That counts for cross-training, right?

    Thanks! I downloaded it. Now I'm not sure how to set different intervals...

    Do you have an iPhone or and Android phone? If you do, I would like to suggest the app RunKeeper. Not only will it record you runtime and distance (and map it too) you can set it up to coach you: "Next Interval, 1 minute slow." "Next interval 2 minutes fast" I find it very useful.
