An update on the stolen *Couch to 5 km* exercise ... thing.

I have been faithfully going to the gym three times twice a week to jog on the tread mill. Last week I was able to do (fairly easily - although I was a stuffed goose at the end):

Brisk 5 minute warmup walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging with 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes.
This week I am to do:
Brisk 5 minute warmup walk. Then alternate 90 seconds of jogging with 2 minutes of walking for a total of 20 minutes.

But in actuality, yesterday I did:
Brisk 2 minute warmup walk, followed by 2 minutes of jogging and 1 minute of walking for a total of 20 minutes.
I am so excited!! Now all I need  is to see some belly flub shifting and I'll be really stoked! I am going to try for that again today or tomorrow.

(I do realise that in reality this is a pretty ordinary effort... )

Awesome effort!

You are totally awesome! TOTALLY! I'm proud of you.

(One teensy word of caution though... everyone I know who has done the program has STRONGLY urged against fast-tracking it, because it greatly increases your chance of injury...)
