Yes, I am still doing the Couch to 5k programme! Today week three starts which means doing the following....five minute brisk walk to warm up and then two repetitions of 90 seconds jog, 90 seconds walk, three minutes jog and three minutes walk.

The first three minute jog wasn't good, if only because I kept looking at my stopwatch only to find that just 15 seconds had lapsed!! So, when I had to run for three minutes again I ignored the stopwatch for as long as I could and that wasn't too bad.

I also decided to run my route in reverse (the route I mean, not me!! It would be quite funny to go backwards though!!) just to give myself a change of scenery and not to be too predictable and just to catch those stalkers out!! ;-)

Next week is going to be harder as I think that I have at least one five minute run to do, but I am going to ignore that for now as I still have two more sessions of week three to do, which should boost my fitness for week four!

i've found that the longer runs are actually easier for me -- i tend to count the seconds with a shorter run and the stop and go stop and go is actually harder! i'm on the week with the 25 minute straight run which i am scared about but i did the 20 minute one on sunday and it was great! so we'll see. good luck!
