Couch to 5K - End of Week 2

Week 2 -

Brisk five-minute warm up walk.
Then alternate 90 seconds of jogging and two minutes of walking for a total of 20 minutes (6 reps of each).
Five-minute cool down walk.

YAY I did it!!  I didn't slow down, I didn't end early, I didn't cheat...I did all three days this week just as I was supposed to!

I know it doesn't seem like much a challenge but today was.  I felt great going into it and I was excited to start but when I hit my first run my right shin and my left knee started hurting.  Ack!  But I pushed through it and didn't stop.  I am so glad I did because when I finished, I was very proud of myself. 

I have to admit, I'm a little nervous going into next week but I WILL DO THIS!!!!

Happy Friday everyone!!!

You will do just fine! :) Keep pushing through. There is just something so sweet in that particular feeling of running accomplishment. Happy Friday!
