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.
Tonight’s run was very good! I hadn’t ran in two days – I had planned on doing W3D2 yesterday, but we got busy doing stuff and it totally slipped my mind, and by the time I remembered about it, it was already dark. I was dreading it today, to be quite honest! I had been following a fairly strict diet, but for the past 2 days I completely ignored my dieting rules for Mexican food and pizza. Those are definitely my weaknesses. But I’m back on the Weight Watchers bandwagon now and am enjoying a nice big salad as I type this.
Anyway, I was dreading today’s run, partly because I haven’t been eating right and partly because that second 3-minute run was a killer last time, and I just knew there was no way I would be able to complete it tonight, either. But I did! I totally did both 3-minute runs and both 90-second runs, just as the program is laid out! I was super excited about it and very proud of myself. (Toot toot!)
Can’t wait for Week 3 Day 3!
