This week I increased from 3min jogging intervals to 5min jogging intervals, which I was nervous for. However, it turned out I did just fine. It usually just those first few minutes after the 5min warm up that get to me. Don’t get me wrong – running is difficult. I still haven’t found that mythical “runners high” people talk about. But, I am able to follow the c25k program. I am a tad worried about the end of next week: the big 20min run! There’s just a 5min walking warm-up to 20min of uninterrupted running — yikes! But we shall see how that goes. . .

And, let’s not forget about linking back to my nine week training schedule to link up with all of my other couch to 5k weekly recaps.
