Couch to 5K: Week 1, Day 3

By Skip

Last day of this first week and once again….

Here is what is on the list for today’s workout:

  • 5 minute warmup
  • Alternate 60 seconds of jogging with 90 seconds of walking for 20 minutes
  • 5 minute cooldown

As you can see I went a little bit over what I was suppose to do but not much.

I forgot to mention in my last post, when I was talking about the Nike+ app and sensor, is some of the other cool things that is does.  I will explain these items of interest across several blog posts to keep you coming back!

One of the nice things is that it will retain your history as long as you don’t re-set your iPhone or erase the data.  Overall, it will track your total distance run and show you what your best mile time is.

When you finish a workout, if you have beat any of your personal best times, a voice will come on telling you just that…. usually it is a famous athlete.  Once, Lance Armstrong came on to tell me that I had just obtained my personal best time… well thank you Lance!

About

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
