Couch to 5K – Week 3

I can put a big old check mark in front of Couch to 5K – Week 3 on my to do list, because as of tonight it is done!

Each of the three workout days in week three entailed a brisk five minute warm up walk, then two repetitions of the following:  Jog for 90 seconds, walk for 90 seconds, jog for three minutes, and then walk for three minutes.  Then to finish up, the program required a five minute cool-down walk.  It wasn’t the worst, but three minutes is definitely a step up from 90 seconds.

I’d appreciate any tips on breathing from you runners out there because apparently I get winded pretty easily.  Seriously, I can’t seem to control my ragged, hard breathing and it’s only a couple of three minute runs at this point.

And now, for your viewing pleasure, here’s a view from one of the hikes the hubby and I took in Newport State Park, WI.
