Couch to 5K Progress

So, today I’m starting week 3 of the Couch to 5K program. Have I done all of weeks 1 and 2? No, but there’s so much changing between walking and running that it’s painful on the joints, calves and whatever the heck shin splints pains come from… Muscles? I need to check on that.

Anyway, week three there are longer stints of running, which will be hard on the lungs, but the lungs recover faster and don’t hinder workouts as much as all the stop/start of jogging/walking. We’ll see how it goes. For the record, here’s how week three pans out:

Warmup Walk: 5 minutes
Run: 90 seconds
Walk: 90 seconds
Run: 3 minutes
Walk: 3 minutes
Run: 90 seconds
Walk: 90 seconds
Run: 3 minutes
Walk: 3 minutes

Total: 23 minutes

Plus, it’s a relatively short workout. Anyone can power through something for 23 minutes, right? Yeah, hopefully. If I’m not rendered unconscious, I’ll check in later today or tomorrow.
