I just did W1D2 and it definitely helps to walk on the off days. It was easier today during the jogging part.

Congrats on starting the challenge! I just finished week 1 today and would like to share what I learned. I felt stronger on the second run with more controlled breathing and higher stamina. However, I took two days of rest before the third run, and I feel that it had a negative impact on me. I will definitely cross train with just walking on the rest days in order to continue to build my stamina. I don't know if that information will help you with your program, but I just wanted to share my mistakes. Good luck to you and your endeavor!

I needed something to kick me into gear (and kick me in my rear) and this was it!

I haven't run since Junior High and the running was a lot easier and more fun than I remember. Sure, I sweat like kingdom come but it was the first time, in a long time, that my body felt alive.

My stats were:
~ 26 mins (added 1-min walk for cool down)
~ 1.46 miles
~ Treadmill walk speed: 3.0
~ Treadmill run speed: 5.0

I would have done this outdoors but it's quite hot here in the Midwest. emoticon

Best of luck to all those starting this program. If I can do it, so can you!

Irish smiles,
Shannon
