C25K - Week 4, Day 2

So I took a little while off after Jedi's desexing operation as he could not be left unsupervised because he was so unwell... I ended up getting back into it on Monday and today was my 2nd day of Week 4.

I worked out in the oval there are 4 trees that I can use as markers so that I run the same distance every time. Going on Google Earth, the distance around the oval (using the trees to make it a square path) is 375m per lap.

Today I ran 6 laps + 2 horizontal ends of the path which adds up to exactly 2.4km!!!! Adding up the time that it took me to run that, I am 3 minutes behind on my deadline! It took me 16 minutes of running to get there. Ouch! But hey, I am only 2 weeks into my running program, so really I'm not doing TOO badly!!

Anyway, one more day of Week 4 and then it's Week 5 which consists of:

Day 1:
Jog: 5 minutes
Walk: 3 minutes
Jog: 5 minutes
Walk: 3 minutes
Jog: 5 minutes

Day 2:
Jog: 8 minutes
Walk: 5 minutes
Jog: 8 minutes

Day 3:
Jog: 20 minutes (3.2km)

It seems like a big jump, but she'll be right!
