How to Start Running: Month 5

Somehow in the midst of moving back from Norwalk, I forgot to publish this so my enormous apologies for missing Month 5 just as peak, perfect running season kicks off!! 

This month will show off how far you’ve come, with you working up towards 8 minutes of running at a time in the middle of your 30 minute run. If you get discouraged this month, take a moment (or two) to reflect on the fact that you started this by running for 30 seconds at a time just 17 weeks ago. This month is all about stretching out the minutes of running. Next month will be about hitting the goal of 10 minutes of continuous running, then cutting down the walking intervals as you’re comfortable.

Week Workout Plan
Week 17 32 minutes (2:00 walk 6:00 run. Repeat 4 times)
Week 18 30 minutes (2:00 walk 7:00 run. Repeat 3 times. Walk 3 minutes to end.)
Week 19 32 minutes (1:00 walk 7:00 run. Repeat 4 times)
