I am not a runner…

November 4, 2009

…but I play one in my head sometimes.

This week I officially started the “couch to 5K” training program, intended to get someone from inactivity to running a 5k in about 9 weeks. At this point I cannot imagine being able to run 3 miles without stopping or slowing to walk, but we’ll see how it goes!

The first week is 3 workouts where I do intervals of walking 90 seconds and jogging 60 seconds for 20 minutes, plus a warm up and cool down walk at either end. I have two days completed as of this morning and so far, so good.

  1. That looks like a great plan. And who cares if you have to stop or slow down. Just keep moving in the right direction, that’s all that really matters.
