Day 2 of Couch 2 5k

Well, I adhered to the program. I did it the exact way I was supposed to. I even upped the brisk walk...but I also upped the speed of which I jogged as well. I jogged at 5.0. Maybe I should go slower a 4.7 or so. I could feel my shins, likely from the whole entire 5K from the last program day. I'll do some of the toe flexor stretches to ward off shin splints. I'm opting out of Ab Ripper X. Gotta let that settle for a bit.

25 minute workout.

When is the 5k?

It's March 7th, aptly called the Frosty 5K! LOL

when my shins bother me on the treadmill, i have to slow down to 4.7 instead of 5.0! Good Luck! I tried the C25K before. For me it was easier to walk for 5 min, run for as long as i could, go back to walking until i caught my breath. that worked and finally i was up to running 20 min w/o stopping!
