Today I started the Couch to 5K program. I bought the iPhone app which times the workouts for you and contains the entire 9 week program.
My favorite thing about the app is that it tells you (in your headphones) when you’re half way done, when to start running, and when to walk. It’s really great.
Today’s workout (day one) looked like this:
“Brisk 5 minute warm up walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes. Five minute cool down walk.”
A total of 31 minutes. Whew. It was quite the work out but I feel really great. Now it’s off to bed by 11:00 and another productive day tomorrow. I’ll try to update this from month to month with my progress. Good night!
