Tonight I decided to move on to Week 3. I spent 5 days on Week 2 and I was getting fairly comfortable with the 90 second runs. Here is the Week 3 schedule:
Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then do two repetitions of the following:
- Jog 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
- Walk 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
- Jog 400 yards (or 3 minutes)
- Walk 400 yards (or 3 minutes)
- five-minute cool-down.
I feel pretty good about tonight’s exercise. I did NOT finish the last 3-minute run – I probably did about 90 seconds of it. But I’m okay with that. :) I will do my next run on Thursday, and I will try my BEST to complete the last 3-minute run. My legs are still adjusting to running with all this weight and I’m still kind of sore! But I’m working towards a huge goal and that is all that matters!
