Now finished Week 2!
90 seconds running and 2 minutes walking. Repeat for 20 minutes.
2 minutes sounds like a long time walking, however it’s enough rest time after 90 seconds running which feels long enough. 90 seconds is a good time of running, it’s doo-able, but you feel it.
Remember this is designed for people who can’t run very well.
After my first 90 seconds I had a stitch, but I walked it off after 2 minutes and it didn’t come back again.
As long as you keep a steady pace it is quite enjoyable. My muscles felt it afterwards in a good ache way. After last week I wasn’t sure I’d be able to step it up but I really surprised myself.
I feel great! Bring on Week 3.
Downloaded this app the other day – very good indeed! https://www.zombiesrungame.com/
They’re releasing a Couch to 5k ‘Mission’ soon – sounds good!
Zombie Run is Awesome! Wow that’s cool I’ll have to look out for that.
