Who's in this week and where are you?

I did W2W1 before dinner tonight. It was very exhilarating! I thought it'd be impossible to do 90 seconds of running this soon but it was fine. My lungs hurt but I did it!

ETA: Changed the week start to Mondays.

Good job!

I think week 3 seems like a big jump-- 3 minutes of jogging!

I finished week 2 last night but I did another night of week 2 tonight so a friend of mine can catch up and do it with me. It was much easier to do it with someone else!

Did W2W2 tonight. My knees hurt a bit at the first jog. I think I need new kicks.

I did week 3 day 1 tonight and WOW, it was easier than week 2!! I ended the 30 minutes not even breathing hard. My daughter -- 8 years old-- did it with me tonight. It was fun!

WTG Lanie!
Just got home from my first group 5K "run". There were plenty of walkers too. The runners finished around 20 minutes. The last group of walkers finished around 80 minutes.
I finished at 38.5 minutes. I was aiming for 36 and I would have made that if I hadn't done the first 15 minutes as a warm up walk. It was 38* out so I thought I'd better take the extra time so as not to hurt myself.
I am excited though to do it again! I think I'll modify the C25K plan to have a full 3 miles on the weekends. I know you're not supposed to but it was easier than I thought it would be and a good motivator.
Is anyone else still doing this with Lanie and me?

Wow, that is awesome! Congratulations!

How did you space out running and walking? You must have done quite a bit of running to do it so quickly.

I ran 90 seconds at a time(because I was still in W2) and walked until I felt ready to run again.
My body is raring to go but my lungs are holding me back. I've always had weak lungs so I need to be careful. I really should see a Dr. about it. I have a brother with Asthma + heart valve defect and my sister has pulmonary hypertension. I don't want to find out I have a defect. I wanna live my life without the worry my siblings have.
I don't think my time was fast at all but thanks. I walked the first mile in 13.5 minutes and finished the the next two miles at under a 12 minute mile. I stopped to tie my shoelaces 3 times. I need new sneaks!!!
I enjoyed myself very much. I really liked passing people.
