From Couch to 5k: Week 1

I started training tonight. HOOAH!

This is what I'm doing (per the couch to 5k experts): 60 second jog, 90 second walk. Alternate for 20 minutes. 3 times a week. MWF.

I calculated it out - that's 8 cycles. 8 minutes of jogging and 12 minutes of walking.

We'll see if I'm alive tomorrow.

I've come a long way...

But I realized after trying to jog for a mere 60 seconds, that I have a long way to go.

It's thrilling, really. The thought of being able to jog for 30 minutes without stopping is truly incredible.
