I am using the 5K Runner app from FITNESS22 LTD on my iPhone for this bucket list goal.
Week 1/ Day 3
5 min warm-up
1 min run + 1.5 min walk (8 times)
5 min cool down
Total time: 30 mins
Before: Well rested and ready to hit Day 3. I choose a small, flat area that I would run in today to help me concentrate on breathing. This is something that I had trouble with on Day 2 with the hills.
Afterward: Still feeling pumped. I feel like I could have ran for longer and my pace was faster today at 1.62 miles. I did something different this time. During the walking portions of the exercise I would slow my pace and concentrate on relaxing again so I could run a little hard on the next round. Averaging 18 minutes is not bad for walking most of the time. This will increase as I go and I can’t wait until I can hit my first mile without stopping.
